I am a 57 year old sailor and have found that my fetish for LED lighting devices is getting out of hand
It started slowly with a simple torch. I was pleased with the hours I got from every battery set - I would turn it on and off just for the pleasure and I would feel the bulb and marvel at how cool it was running.
I now sit below with several devices casting a ghostly unpleasant light across my tiny saloon which at one time was lit by the lovely glow of incandescent energy sapping bulbs or even by candles
I once had a wonderful LED torch that ran on six AA batteries for 1000 years - it produced a lovely bright and powerful but ghostly white light.I made a special wooden holder for it by the cabin door
Sadly on one terribIe evening put it down on a pontoon and watched it roll into the water shining brightly as it went down.
Just to write about the incident brings back disturbing flashbacks.
recently I came across an LED torch that costs £213
I want it.
Do you look at torch porn on amazon and ebay?
Do you touch LED lights to see how cool then run?
do you talk to other sailors about LEDs when clearly they do not share your passion?
I would love to hear from any other sailors who are similarly afflicted and am very eager to be put in touch with a person who can offer me some form of aversion therapy.
