I am looking to install some additional lighting in my galley and over the dinning table and was thinking of using track lighting to accomplish this. Any suggestions etc.?
Not so sure track lighting is all that required. You can get flexible fixtures if need be. The track fixtures can be a problem. There are some great LED fixtures out there with both red/ white and dimmer. I replaced all the old bulbs with LED bulbs. For the counter I went with a Cold Cathode flourescent dual light (Taylorbrite) over the main counter and Fridge. It casts a large area of light that the spot lights don't. preparing food
it covers the basics from sink to fridge to stove. It also lights the bottom of the fridge and gives a nice level for casual dinning. It wasn't a cheap
fixture but it is lower power than fluorescent and yields little heat. There is a dimmer for it but I did not install it.
I think if you place dedicated lights hard-wired you'll just have fewer problems with the fixtures going bad. You probably have some fixtures that came with the boat that are located OK but perhaps a different fixture could provide better light or make it adjustable in terms of focus and brightness.
The bright halogen track fixtures work fine in your home but on board they suck more power and generate a lot of heat. if you begin with task based lighting you can fill in a few others for atmosphere. You'll save power and make less heat.
