I read the posts here and looked at fixture replacement as well as bulb replacement & decided to go a different route.

The 9 LED strip I used is $13, guarenteed for life and draws .07 amp. It has the apparent luminosity of the two 10 watt incandecent bulbs it replaces (.833 amps *2) although it is blue white in color which I don't mind.

The nice thing about this modification is that the fixtures use spade type connectors, so I can always revert back to the incandecents if need be.

I looked at incandecent bulb prices at West Marine (not necessarily a good price comparison) and they had the bulbs at $5 each...so for $3 more I end up with a guarenteed permanent solution.

I may end up adding a second set of strips to increase (and even out) the luminosity from the edge mounting I have done so far. even so this should mean total draw is .98 (7 fixtures X .07 amps X 2) versus 11.6 (7 fixtures X .833 amps X 2)
