What struck me about these LEDs is how bright they are and how little current they use. I have only measured the current use for the entire 16 foot string, but I would guess that the small circle that I installed into the fixture would only use around .2 amps, but is as bright as the 1 amp bulb I took out.

You didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen!

(Political jokes aside, that's a really good idea!)

miatapaul Looks really nice. One might call it a bright idea!

LED Light Project for Sailboat

I installed some "rope lights" this weekend, although the LEDs are more like ribbon lights. Here is some video of the project on Youtube:
