LEDs bought at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2009

Hi all

Is that title specific enough?

I bought some little LEDs at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2009 that I will be putting inside cupboards and such to give a little light. They are all sitting on the boat awaiting installation. I am not at the boat and it is quite a ways from here. The booth just sold LEDs, they came in various sizes and they were very economical.

Is there anyone that was at this year's show, that remembers specifically the booth and has a name or a web address where I can perhaps order more, I would appreciate the information.

Feel free to send me a PM rather than clutter up the list - up to you.

Cheers and thanks in advance.

Rik - I assume you mean 2008. Either that, or you've found a way to alter the space/time continuum - and if the latter is true, you'd just go forward (or is it back) in time to the 2009 sailboat show and visit the booth to get those futuristic L.E.D. thingamabobs.

I think it was "sailboat stuff" in the tent right behind Fawcett's that had the L.E.D.'s

MastLight LED Replacement Bulbs

We went LED for just about everything on our boat 2 years ago - amazing power savings!

I'm TOTALLY going to be asking you which types of bulbs you used and where. We'd love to do the same (we've gone to flourescent at home)--power savings on the boat make me happy.

This one HL-40 LED 120 VAC Strip Lamp under the dish cabinet over the sink, and a pin-base type to retrofit our existing brass reading lamps (sorry no link for that one). We like the "warm white" a mix of the old bluish-white LED color plus some amber. Our anchor light is blue-white, though - the exact color of starlight - which could cause visibility problems against a clear night sky.

We've used these guys too: LED lighting, soundproof, Sailor's Solutions Inc.

Some companies approach the brightness problem for LEDs by clustering many small bulbs, others by using fewer, brighter bulbs. (This company uses option #2) Again, this is "warm white"

We still have a halogen for our chart table lamp, because accurate color is so important there.

The real question is whether the LEDs are cheaper in January 2009 or October 2009! Buy now or wait!

We have started replacing cabin lights with LED. They are truly a savings energy wise. Their lighting and color is definately different so we will leave some dimming florescents in place also.
