Need gear suggestion - Bimini Top Lighting

Hey all,

We love our cockpit...nothing better than spending lazy evenings at anchorage all hanging out playing dominoes or cards. Only one thing is lacking...some low level lighting.

Our B343 has a nice light that shines on the floor of the cockpit near the companionway, but we're really lacking some lighting in the rest of the cockpit. Attempts to use velcro strapped battery lights have proven to be lacking. So I'm looking for ideas on the boards...what have people done to make their cockpit better lit.

LED solutions are best...avoid batteries.

Right now, I'm thinking of this: http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-1|65136|992429&id=1393372

but seems like a cludgy implementation. Ideal would be an integrated unit that has lighting and speakers all in one bar..I've seen some charter yachts with this setup.
