Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
It is generally not advisable to put white LEDs into nav light fixtures that were designed for incandescent lights. LEDs emit light over a very narrow range of wavelengths, and when put through traditional incandescent color filters the color fails to meet USCG requirements because. For instance, the green nav light on the starboard side of your boat tends to be blue colored.
I'd suggest checking this out carefully before you all get too excited about this mod.
