Re: any one update to LED's

Changed all my incandescent and fluorescent cabin lights, reading lights, navigation lights, and anchor light for Dr. LED replacements this year.

So far so good....plenty bright (I chose the brighter bulbs for places where they were needed). No RFI on HF discernable. No heat (no more burned fingers on the little metal housings for reading lights).

Really nice to be able to turn on all the cabin lights and not worry about a significant draw on the house bank.

Yeah, it cost a pile of $$$, and I won't really know until after the upcoming cruising season, but I think it's going to be a worthwhile upgrade.
