Where should the line be drawn on knick knacks? Things like pictures, shells and ornaments can make things home like but then they can be a nuisance. who has picture frames on bulkheads?

Pirate I'm amazed you have room on the bulkheads for photos with the manacles and that "wheel" taking up so much room.......

At the risk of sounding entirely too logical and simple, what makes a boat homey to me is setting it up just how you want it, just for yourself, without regard for tradition, superstition, or contrary opinions.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Wombat, TD-
Can't say about OZ, sometimes it takes a while for things to go across the seas, in either direction. Can say that by 1976 I had replaced a lot of lights with high CRI bulbs and never looked back, although I think an 8' tube was $22US back then and there were only a handful of suppliers who would carry it. Each of the 3? 4? times I've replaced tubes since, they have gotten easier and way cheaper to find. I think the shorter (22W) tubes are under $4 now and the 8' tubes about $10-12 last time I checked.

The first time someone complained about the lights...after a couple of hours they opened the door and asked "What's wrong, why are all the lights so dim and yellow?" referring to the tungsten bulbs that hadn't changed a wit. So much for tungsten being "warm", so's candlelight and campfires, but that isn't what we grew up with.

AFAIK the cold cathode lamps suffer mostly from being a "sliver" of bright light. That unconventional form factor has made them the champs of scanners and not much else, but even there they usually run a 5V or 12V converter to supply the higher lamp tube voltage. They're available (new) cheaply from surplus electronics parts houses in the US, something like $5-10 for a 12" tube and electronics to operate it, in white or colors. Certainly looks like it would adapt to a boat without problems--aside from needing to regulate the 12V boat supply, I suppose.

+1. I think wood alone makes it more comfortable, but also darker than would a white interior would be. THe best is a nice balance of wood, white, and stainless.
