Nordski - hope you get your light fixed. Unfortunately very few lights are working where you are.  Hope they get a handle on the fires! Too close to our place west of a Wolf Creek for sure. Be safe!

Hope the Methow fires are under control.  I heli-logged in that valley back in 87, 88.  Sure were some Huge mule deer up on those unapproachable ridges.  Loved the river too.

Back to the LED issues.
Here is a good page and video of why you need to be careful of what LED you are using on a boat.

If you have a resistor to control voltage for the LED there goes your power saving of the LED as heat from the resistor. May as well stick with incandescent.
