"Enlighten someone!" heh...
We have small C-shaped flourescents (5 watt, I believe) as bunk reading lights that are so nice that I wouldn't change them for LEDs, given the limited time they typically are on. I can see switching the 10 W incandescent bulkhead lights, however, as they are behind little shades and a "warm LED cluster" on a standard bayonet mount would not likely change the "perception" of how the light is used (to illuminate the dinner table), but would save a lot of amps, as these lights are on four or five hours per night.
We need spots for the head and the galley, and LEDs seem the way to go here. I have a nasty bluish single LED in the icebox, but that is actually quite sufficient to identify what I want in a hurry, at a tiny draw. I've actually left this one on for days at a time by mistake, and the draw doesn't register if the weather's heated up a bit, thereby warming the batteries.
