Re: Led fetish support group

Porfin, don't feel bad. Plenty of folk started off warm and cuddly with DW and now think him a loony. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Being a loony that is. Me, I always figured he was borderline barking.

Would a sane man really set out to circumnavigate the UK in the Slugette ? Surely not. Ergo having whackjobs like DW out and about is overall, for the good.

Well thats my justification for liking the old nutter.

Now, DW .... we also have quite the collection of LED lights but I'm still not ready to go the whole hog. For interior lighting applications (remember that is my job) we now have LED halogen replacements that are damn near indistinguishable from halogen when you turn them on. I've not yet found LED for the boat interior that excite me.

Hey! I'm going to drill small holes every 6 inches on my whisker pole to mount led's so I can see if it's set right in the dark!

You are kidding me !!

Hooley freaking dooley.

When do we find out the details ?

KTLers around the globe will be beside themselves with glee, though a trifle blue to see the stern of the Sluggette.

Oh, I wondered if your snit over the slug's diesel engine a few days ago might result in something like this. Now you must provide all the interesting details. And what is happening to the slug? Surely you aren't keeping both!

Re: Led fetish support group

So sad to hear another fine sailor has been LED astray.
My addiction was halted while trying to figure out a thru hull arrangement for the RGB microprocessor controlled underwater array. On the bright side even that would have been less expensive that the amazon torch.

Should sail circles around the dear old Sluggette, who we are all going to miss. I'm guessing you won't.

Gunter rig .... wow. I havn't seen one of those since I sailed a Heron with a mate on Sydney Harbour in the 1970s.

Re: Led fetish support group

Wow,
A new (to you) boat. And here just a few minutes ago I was watching one of your videos thinking "now here is a guy, in a crappy little boat out sailing in crappy English weather having the time of his life with untold hours underway and onboard, suffering abominable tides and questionable anchorages, eating food from a can and making videos of it all." I couldn't help but think what a role model you are for those of us who only go out when the weather is just so, the phase of the moon just right and there is no footbal on the tv. And then you go a sell out and what; leave your poor slug on some god forsaken hardpack to pine and waste away?
For Shame!
But congratulations anyway,
John
