Lighting in rear berth

Published date: December 29, 2012

The light output of these fluorescents is phenominal. The backing plates are oak and secured by a bar with a thread tapped in it through the winch mounting access hole. This clamps the wood to the fibreglass without showing any visible attachent & makes access to the area behind them a breeze. I fitted one on each side, Port side shown here which really enhances vision over radio area & galley when it is slid back. Fluorescent doesn't create radio interference like previous older types did & light is individually switched if required anyway.

    I placed it over the hole closed by the plate hiding the winch bolts. The main problem here was to route the wiring to the panel. Just now there is no separat switch besides that at the light itself. Published by: MS Classifieds
