Cruising my 1995 Catalina 42 MK II sailboat with my cat XO, the good, the bad, and the ugly of the open ocean world cruising life.

As delivered Reboot has 5 overhead halogen lights in the salon. They provide a great deal of light, but have one drawback. After a few years of use the wires corrode in such a way that they can not be reattached to the light fixture. Needless to say this results in the light no longer working, I purchased several new lights from Swego. The lights were cheaper than purchasing them from Catalina. In addition they gave me the option of changing over to LED lights for significantly less cost than the cost of a halogen fixture and an LED light bulb.
