"Growing Up" in my parents' Danish Folkboat, I fell asleep to the sweet fragrance of kerosene lamps. Anything else seems unholy for some reason.

ckgreenman SUPER BRIGHT LEDS home They have just about everything you could ask for including replacment bulbs for most common 12V light fixtures and sockets.

speciald Imtra makes LED rope lights, sold by the foot in 110v., 12v., and 24v. They also come in different colors. I put red lights under the edge of the galley counters, around the dinet seating and under the frames of the bunks in each cabin. They provide a soft light throughout the boat at night.

Cruisingdad Funny you say that... because Shiner is my beer of choice too.

Dang. Now I will be kicked out of my home state.

retclt Gotta go with Allan and SV on this one.

CD, I know you have more class than that!

SVCarolena Now with that on board I'd never have trouble finding my brew in the dark! And as a salute to Tejas (where I lived for a year), lets say I'll be searching for a Shiner Bock.

EDIT - Allan beat me to the punch!

The ones that have the same exact casing with three LED's don't give as much light, don't spread the light as well and don't last as long.

Thse are my favorite . . . 3 for 10 bucks.
