I thought I had read an article somewhere that suggested if you switch to LED's you needed to reduce the fuses on the lines as any short was not quickly picked up due to low wattage by old circuit breakers. I believe article was referencing a home electrical system rather than a marine application. I know nothing about electrical systems so perhaps a more informed person could respond.

I didn't buy the heat issue as a reason to avoid LED's either.
