Default LED 's in cabin

Anybody using LED's for lighting in the cabin?
I'm looking at them for the low amp draw. If your using them please post some pics of the fixtures.
Thanks.

There were alot of booths at the Miami boatshow with all kinds of LED's. I have them in my cockpit which I bought from Boat US. The only difference is that it has a blue look to the lights.

Are you looking for more of a puck light like in the Formula or a rope up the sides? Have you tried to do a google search for 12 volt LED Rope lights? There was a thread on OSO about a year ago on this topic I think. I will try and do a search quick but I am trying to get out of the house. As soon as the truck is warmed up we are GONE!!!!

I'm thinking of upgrading the ones in the tiger too, tired of finding the lil bulbs all over the place after doing some jumping. can you use the exixting wiring or should it be re run?

I have several electronics bocks and web sites for leds and components. I just haven't see anything I like yet. I'm redoing the uphol in the cabin and now's the time to change things up.
I would like to do some back lit (indirect)stuff .

I got some from Boaters World and some from Defender.com . The lights are from Innovativelight.com. There are a lot of LEDS on the market I hope this helps.

I found a site with nice options. Many marine replacement bulbs to keep your existing fixtures.
I wonder what shipping from down under costs?
