"Plus One" on the Alpenglow
Recently a friend of mine put two of the wall lights with the dimmers on his E-38. The quality is evident when you first inspect and turn one on.
So I bought a replacement for our adequate-but-glare-producing florescent galley overhead fixture. Installed it last week. It is Amazing!
Two levels of white and two levels of red. Beautifully made. I chose the 'medium' teak grain and it goes with our teak cabinetry very well. (They have other woods to chose from, also.)
And then it's just nice to find a domestically built and designed light, from a company started by a cruising sailor. I called with some questions about their light specs and the gal that answered was knowledgeable about watts, lumens, and how to compare their lights to others.
As we can budget for it, there will be some more of these in our future.
