Thse are my favorite . . . 3 for 10 bucks.

Now with that on board I'd never have trouble finding my brew in the dark! And as a salute to Tejas (where I lived for a year), lets say I'll be searching for a Shiner Bock.

EDIT - Allan beat me to the punch!

Funny you say that... because Shiner is my beer of choice too.

Dang. Now I will be kicked out of my home state.

Imtra makes LED rope lights, sold by the foot in 110v., 12v., and 24v. They also come in different colors. I put red lights under the edge of the galley counters, around the dinet seating and under the frames of the bunks in each cabin. They provide a soft light throughout the boat at night.
