The final stages (2)

And some more pics of ‘Waratah’. One of the stainless steel support for the bow rollers, the others of the interior which show some of the lighting system. We used as much as possible 24V LED units, for their low energy consumption.

On July 26th I will fly to South Africa to prepare ‘Waratah’ for the launch in Durban, which is scheduled for August 6th.

    LEDs are a fantastic option for boats in general, sailboats in particular, long life, low consumption, more shock resistant.

    • That is even more true for 24 VDC systems. A 24 V light bulb has a thinner filament than a 12 V light bulb (double the voltage, half the current at the same output), and is therefore more vulnerable to shocks and vibration.
