Hi,
 
I'm thinking of replacing the white overhead light at the top of the companionway en the one above the navstation with a 12v Red Night Lighting dome.
 
 
 
 
 
Has anybody done this ?  Where to buy such a lighting dome ?
 
Thanks,
 
Koen

Hi Koen, you can buy special red plastic which is used as a filter for spotlights. Think of drive inn discosets. These filters are square but with a scissor you can cut them in any size. 

If you find another sollution please inform me. 

Groeten, Frank

All A few years back I replaced all of my halogen bulbs with what is shown in the link below.    All of my interior lights now come on with a red light.     All you have to do is toggle the switch a second time and it switches to a white light.    Works great for night sailing as everything first comes on red.   Great product, have not had to replace any yet.

This is the one I use as well - you can get it with the pins on the back or on the side. I have it over the galley as the pic above and also in the head...
