Re: Alpenglow Lights

The Womboat has AlpenGlow fluoros throughout and I have no real complaints other than at best, they are less than inspiring visually. Nonetheless I'd retrofit the things with LED if possible provided the colour temperature is OK. We've tried a number of LED lamps on board, all supposedly "warm white" and none to my eyes satisfactory.

(Warm White ..... originally this was 2700k but recently has been extended to 3000. Some LEDs claiming Warm White are up to 3600.)
