What are y'all running for interior led lighting? Ive thought about getting the led strips from Amazon, a rock light set with 10 or so lights, or the snaketube lights from SLL. I want to add some interior lights in either red or green, to minimize affect on vision in the dark. Something along these lineImageImageImage

I've used green, red and blue .Red is the only one I have had the best luck with not attracting bugs but it does not give off as much visibility. I attached pictures of both my boats.ImageImage

This. I went with red LED's for my interior lighting, and glad I did. Doesn't attract bugs, doesn't impede night vision and provides plenty of light for me to re-tie baits or find things when setting up decoys. I have a picture of my LED navigation lights with bugs ALL OVER the green light, but none on the red. That picture went to die with Photobucket though. The ones I used can be had for much cheaper nowadays, and the LED strips from Amazon are fine, as long as they are waterproof.

I put red LED chain lights (not rope) around the interior of the cockpit on my tuna boat and I think it was only $20 per string for about a 10 foot run.
