V Berth light

I replaced the V berth light with this fluorescent & shifted it to the panel above the bulkhead where it is more out of the way & illuminates the area more effectively. Phenominal light output for reading or checking the ballast tank bung etc. Fluorescents have a higher power consumption than LEDs but lower than conventional incandescent bulbs while still operating at a cool temperature. They also have the best light output/coverage than anything else IMHO. I've now got some holes to fill or make a new bulkhead!
