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

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
