    LED Bulbs-gctid777798



    I'd like to order some LED bulbs to replace those in my galley and V-birth. The boat is put away for the winter so I cannot check as to what bulbs are being used. Perhaps someone knows.

    The galley fixtures have a chrome base while the fixtures in the forward and aft births have a cream coloured plastic base.

    Thanks

    Your forward lights look like my salon lights. Each on took one of these:

    Cutequeen 10pcs White 42mm(1.72") 16-SMD 12V Festoon Dome Light LED Bulbs 211-2 212-2 569 578 - White (pack of 10)

    And one of these:

    The plastic base lights look similar to my engine room light and this is what I used there:

    All of these project a very white toward blue or cold light but are sure a lot brighter than the old bulbs. I got all of these from Amazon and found that one led size covers a bunch of incandescent bulbs. The ones that look like ping pong prattles were a really tight fit. You are also going to learn that LED's are current direction sensitive. I had to rewire three fixtures where I couldn't flip the bulb.

    While these were what I used, and they are good pointers, but until you confirm the bulbs you have, you might want to hold onto your money.

      Those cream colored plastic lens are original and cheap looking in my opinion. I changed out all 17 on my 2859 to a much nicer led fixture. There are many different ones to choose from on ebay. Very easy to remove the old fixtures and wire and mount the new ones. The ones I picked are warm white LED and are brighter than the old ones. Very nice upgrade. I think they were about 12 each approx.

        I never considered swapping out the whole fixture. I've even been looking at them on eBay for another spot on the boat. LoL

        I'd like to stick with changing out to led bulbs for now but will call new fixtures Plan B.

          If you do any cruising at night, and if you decide to switch them out, you may want to get the white/red LED lights. I do a lottos night cruises, and having the red lights saves my night vision. They cost a little more, but they are easy to install and work great.
