Bought a couple cheap rolls somewhere and I am going to mount them up for next year at some point. One row white, one red because I like it dim.

Hard part is to try to understand (and I still dont) how to compare LED lights to regular incandescent wattage ratings.

rope lighting

We are currently installing rope lighting under the gunwales, shelving and engine room of the boat that we are building. We are using the product that IMTRA sells. It seems pretty straight forward. With the connector kits, there is a lot of installation options

Bob,

I would imagine these are marine grade and not the ones that burn out on my deck every year that I have given up on. Have a Merry Christmas.

How has the kit been for you? I was looking at it but really only want 2 colors, but the kit looks fairly easy to put in.

Going on limb here

Anybody ever try the solar powered rope lighting from Harbour Freight. Had thoughts of using something like that to put on my boat while its on the hook during July 4th.

Lots of options out there, I opted for a kit from here.
FLO LED Lighting Design - The best in Marine LED lighting

Did you get the kit ?? I see on another site lots of complaints about this company, no replies to questions, phone calls and no delivery on orders. I wanted to wholesale his products but one of the lights i used as a demo at a show lost 2 leds after about 6 hours of use then when i returned it it took many phone calls to even get a call back and took forever for a replacement.
