Re-wire on 31ft niagara

I am in the process of doing a complete rewire on a niagara sailboat. I can easily pick up cheap interior lights from any auto parts store, but will that take away the value of a nice boat. I could also upgrade to new low amp draw LED's, but would that be considere an upgrade or devalue the boat. I am under the impresion that the niagara is a realy nice boat that will hold its value, but i dont know if it is importat to keep it as original as posible or make it more modern and convient.... any thoughts,,,, thanks Kevin

Upgrading the internal lighting to LED-based ones, provided they have good color, like the Sensibulb-based fixtures, will generally be considered an upgrade.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I would say an UPGRADE to an LED system will only increase the value / appeal of you boat. Do you plan on selling the boat after your renovations? Your Niagara will hold it's value with proper maintainence and care. I'd like to know what you decide, how it worked out, and what your overall costs/time spent were. Where is your Niagara 31 located?
