The mechanic at my boatyard raved about his DeWalt 4.4 Volt / 12 Volt Fluorescent Area Light. It obviously gets rid of the "wet light" problem but he especially liked the lack of shadows which always seem to fall just where you don't want them....
Unfortunately they cost about $35.00 PLUS $60.00 for the battery! I think I'll stick with the drop lights
and try hard not to drop too many into the bilge!
