Period Light Fitting

I need a complete rewire, I think. 

I'd like to keep the original light fittings, but add concealed LED strips. Both cabins need brightening up a bit.


just install led inserts into your original light fitting, I would have a word with Tanya or Tim at Brian Ward's.

Many thanks - much appreciated. I just sourced something a little similar from Captain Watts,


Not exactly the same - but in a pinch ............

Appreciate your info. Just Googled your boat. What a beauty she is.

Here's a random question. Is there such a thing as someone who specialises in redesigning galleys and heads? As the available space is so limited, the challenge is to source the right appliances and fittings to maximise every inch. Just a thought.

I had to change the bulb base for one with two contacts but I had one laying around but would have been easy to redrill and solder new wires in place with solder blobs for the contacts.

If I did it now I would probably run a strip of leds down the middle in warm white and fill the rest with a bright white led strip.

The fluorescent strip lights in my current boat have led strips inside now.
