You've saved me taking some pictures, because my saloon oil lamp from Nova Scotia (which cost me $42) is very close in design to this one, but is shiny...not "antiqued"

My boat looks like a Lolipop store or something waiting for the smurfs or the Leperchauns to arrive...besides I keep banging my head on them, and burn my fingers because these things stop with the wind, and she keeps asking me to light the candles, that keep blowing out agrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Try these out...

They look cheesy as hell by themselves, but if you put them in a candle holder with frosted sides, you can't tell they're not candles. We use them in our house on a wall mounted candle holder and nobody can tell they're battery operated. Also, really easy to turn on and off...just press down...they have a push switch on the bottom.

If you were electrically gifted, you could probably string a bunch together and run them off the DC system with a common switch.

I've got one pic of the lamp and where its at.
Beware ---that lamp will leak from the arms going from the tank to the top! I think there vent holes drilled there.

That one is about 2 years old with no leaks. Ive had a few that started leaking before and they got junked fast. For the most part its been working fine for all this time.

If you do want to burn a candle, I recommend this product.

Seriously? Really?

Well, I suppose they are the safest option...but I like real lamplight, myself.

You should find out what batteries they take and buy a big box before you go back. Batteries are expensive in Europe.
