LED technology is getting better all the time...

Here's a link to info on the Imtra replacements I mentioned above.
IMTRA Marine Products
I bought one two years ago as a trial. Very happy and bought more this spring. Nice and bright, no RFI problems, and under $20 each at Defender.

|mfsykes||LED sounds great, but I just finished crewing for three days where the owner had replaced all incandescent with LEDs - they interfered with our radio transmissions...don't know why, but when we doused the lights, no radio problems.|

The statement has been made elsewhere that; you get what you pay for. Maine Sail did an excellent comparison of the various available LEDs here. There was also a caution / update of them here.
I pulled out two black plastic Perko Incandescent reading lamps, and installed two of these;
Elsewhere in the cabin, I replaced the most used incandescents with these;
All of these are Sensibulb LEDs, available here.

For the benefit of others looking at the thread who have festoon type bulb holders (a metal pointed cap at each end of cylinder, typically 44, 42, 31 mm long). I bought festoon type bulbs with 6 and 3 leds, one of the 6s was red. I found the 6 to be properly warm white while the 3 was much cooler. Since the 6 warm is not as bright as a 10w incandescent, I'll be going with 6s in each of my lamps. Excess brightness does not seem to be an issue.
I got mine from superbrightleds.com and the model number I liked is 4210-xHP6.
