Re: Electrically conductive paint

How about cutting down on electrical wiring? No more physical switches. The ability to route control wires without worrying about chafe.

Combine that with this:

I could just imagine the whole hull and deck lit up, no problem seeing you at anchor in the night.

Re: Electrically conductive paint

Actually if you had the mast or a portion of it done, it might be alright.

Re: Electrically conductive paint

You could paint the mast in a cool design!

Paint the inside of your bimini.

Paint a stripe around your dinghy.

Paint under your counters, inside your cabinets, inside your deep lockers, etc... anywhere you need a little extra light.
