Any production boat lacks individuality, and Tangleberry was no exception. We like the clean uncluttered Hanse style, but have done a few things to make the interior more practical and cosier.
Lighting: All interior bulbs replaced with warm white LEDs to save power. They are not quite as bright as the original halogens but use 1/10 the power.
I loved the brass kerosene fuelled trawler lamp we used to have in a boat long ago, but they are very expensive, and I don’t want another fuel on board. Also, polished brass doesn’t really suit our mahogany and chrome interior. The solution? IKEA to the rescue. I installed an Ottava hanging lamp (aluminum), which is their version of a traditional fisherman’s lamp. I also bought a bulkhead clock from them which has a thermometer and hygrometer in the dial. The lamp was made for mains power, but I have adapted it with a readily available 12 volt LED bulb which fits the screw in socket.
