My Sensibulb Upgrade

Have to thank Mainsail again



One of the ONLY things that did work on Seafever were the cabin lights



But with only 1/2 the lights on and drawing 1.65 amps and the head and forward bulbs drawing .96 amps each it was a bit OUT of control



With last seasons shakedown out of the way and plans to do much more overnights on the boat this year the almost 4 amp draw was out of the question

I have to say hats off to them for making a bulb that works in ALL the old fixtures so well



YOU have to be careful as there freaking bright beyond anything you could expect and while they claim 10 watt equivalent it seems conservative



So now the main cabin is lighted like daytime on .34 amps now i just have to watch out for lightning

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
