Mega scracht/and interior lights
The scratch that you can see here is about 3 feet long, it didn't cause any gouges in hull just scraped the paint off... I was away when this happened.
How to deal with it to have paint(gelco?) restored.
... Now the interior lights shown here,
The oerco has a waterproof on/off switch plus a gasket and is less than half price than the other one shown... But is not LED and sucks a lot of watts.
The other one doesnt have a waterproof switch, no rubber gasket, but is LED and has also a red light included(you get on/off/on) reading light plus night travel red light. Much bigger price.
Any suggestions in these 2 subjects?
Thanks in advance to all of you for sharing of experiences, wisdom and goodwill. THX!

TBD Looking for my next boat CT
As for the scratch, is the boat painted or gelcoat? Is it surface scuff, or gouged in?

As for the light: LED only. There is no further reason for new incandescent bulbs on a boat in this era, IMHO. If it’s interior, no need for waterproof. Check out sailboatowners.com store
