Led's

Posted on August 12, 2010 at 3:25pm 1 Comment

I have just finished changing all my lighting over to LED's, it was definitely a trial and error effort but here are the advantages:

1. my Amp hours has been reduced (with all lights, cabin heads, galley nav, anchor light etc on) from 44 amp hours to 6

2. my average amp hours has been reduced from 18 to 2,5, (this would be at anchor with the salon lights on)

The Chesapeake Bay is a great place to sail spring, summer and fall.  It can get a bit cold and wet in winter so that is a great time to head south.  I am sure you know all this but having lived aboard in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Annapolis I was always amazed how many new quiet peaceful or fun places existed.  Enjoy each day.  Lola

Thanks very much for the advice Ron, appreciate it.
We aren't going any where near POP and Yes we have up dated our shots.
I would love to talk to you and hopefully will get the chance on the way to Miami on Monday.
As you can imagine last minute is always crazy.
Take care

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
