Galley Lighting Suggestions

Hello all,

I am redoing my galley in my Hudson Force 50. I am looking for a high class interior that really shines. As a centerpiece on the roof of the galley, I am looking for the right 12 light that provides good lighting for the pilot house and looks great. I have seen some kerosene lanterns that looked nice, but I really don't want anything that will swing as I occasionally have some heavy swells when sailing.

I have been looking for a while, but thought I would reach out to the community to see if anyone has any suggestions.

The Witchdoctor.

Re: Galley Lighting Suggestions

If you like the looks of the lantern, use bungees to secure it in a seaway. For good light to cook or reaad by, led lights are better.
