Any Colour You Like

The final "ambient" lighting for the main and forward salon has been installed. These are two five meter LED strips that run along the underside of the side decks illuminating downward. These strips have 60 LEDs per meter that provides a fairly continuous "glow". The lighting is not "direct" enough to be used as work lighting, but it illuminates the cabin such that you can find your way around when its dark.

These new lights enable the removal of some temporary "tack up" under shelf florescent lights I had been using, and with that, the annoying AC cords strung about to power them.

The wireless controller allows for custom dimmable color selection as can be seen in the pictures below.






There is even an animated "disco" mode. Maybe I will post a video of that later.
