PS - As you can see, I just added a LCD HDTV this week as well I get twenty digital channels, several in High Def, over the air for free since I live so close to San Francisco.

Great photo and nice looking salon. What receiver do you use for the HD?

No receiver ... just the OTA HDTV tuner built in to the TV and a $50 omnidirectional antenna that I tucked away in to the head liner.

Love the look of that interior. Would be great to see more photos of different boat interiors with different LED setups!

$50 a bulb sounds pretty steep though - anyone know of any cheaper alternatives that look as, or nearly as good?

LED or CCFL?

I have a 30' powerboat here in SE Slaska with 3 LED's in the center walkway. Not much light out of them, factory installed, and I'm looking to either install more LED's or CCFL's. The price on CCFL when you add a dimmer gets pretty high, $310 for a 2 panel red/white with dimmer. Who has some experience with CCFL? Hope you can help

The LEDs I have are about $20 and the equivalent of a 20 watt (or more) halogen. That is very bright, these four lamps light up a 14 x 10 ft room. The imtra fixtures that I put in are brushed nickel recessed lights that look fantastic and are also just $20 a piece.

I found some dimmable LED's for $130 at Sailor Solutions. I really want more info on the CCFL's. They seem to be warmer and more difuse. Also I think a dimmer has some late night advantages.
