PalmettoSailor will become famous soon enough
I'll second the Alpenglow. My boat had no overhead lighting until we installed a Apenglow unit. The one we installed is midships just forward of the companionway. We got the dual source unit with hi/lo white light and hi/lo red LED's. That one light provides adequate white light on low for most tasks in the galley and nav station and on high provides enough light to read in the main saloon area even without the reading lights on. For night sailing the red LED's allow enough light for folks to move around while the off watch foks sleep. Its a great alternative to expensive LED's in reading fixtures that still wouldn't provide overhead light on my boat.
