LED Cabin Lighting
#1
Have a 1999 35 Open, the cabin has many 3" halogen lights and they run very hot.  Would like to replace with led lighting to reduce the heat given off by halogens.  

Does anyone have a good supplier or can recommend a bright led light?  

Thanks

I just replaced bulbs in the cabin and the running lights. It cut the amp draw down almost 5 amps. Love them.

What bulb did you replace them with?  Must have been something other than a halogen.....

Replaced them with LED bulbs from Marinebeam.com. They are located in South Carolina. They were very helpful. I am extremely happy with them. Replaced the running and anchor bulbs also. A little pricey but worth it because they dont draw the amps when on the hook. Looking to replace the florescent tubes in the cabin next. Those are quite pricy though.

Thanks Kurt, I was also going to replace those cabin fluorescents.  Was thinking about led strip lighting as an option.

Which LED replacement did you buy at MarineBeam?   Any trouble installing?

Take whatever bulbs you want to replace out, then call them and they can tell by your description which bulbs you need. They can also help with the color and the watts. Take notice of how much clearance you have between the bulb and your lens also. LEDs don't produce a lot of heat so that is good also. They also have deals on quantities. Easy to install and you will love the light and reduced watt draw on your batteries. You are talking about 12 volt lights I assume.
