Re: How 'bout it? Any Soverel owners?

Finally, the work on Prana has begun, a 1974 Soverel 30 MKIII. New cushions, new engine on the way. Next, rewire, new lighting, plumbing modifications then standing rgging and sails upgraded.
.

During the rewire I want to add new LED lighting, but keep the traditional looking brass fixtures. She has that "older boat" look in the cabin with a lot of wood. Any Ideas on the best lights for these dark boats?

I also want to replace the portlights with stainless or brass. Has anyone done this and could you suggest a brand name?

Thanks for all the advice I have received on this forum. I had three boats in mind when I came across this one. After some input from you folks and a day sail on her, I took a closer look at them all and chose the Soverel. She is a great boat.
