Every post I went to says Yellow is the best, as CentralWalleyeSlayer stated. Bugs are attracted to ultraviolet and Blue the most. Apparently they can't see yellow. I guess I will be getting some yellow LED rope light

The Old Lady yells quickly if I start stinking so I can't go that route. I'll have to do some searches on the subject. Thanks for the nice post on lights Nihsif (probably wrong). I haven't put any lights in my boat yet, because it usually takes me awhile to make up my mind. I'll check back in after I've done my research, but very good post. I don't think anybody leaves their lights on for long periods anyway. But LED is the way to go.

Snake, Bugs are the same with red and yellow.On the old boat I had red,still got bugs,on the house I had on of those yellow lights for bug prevention and still got mauled by them.If I wear white close and don't shower ,the bugs are less.Not sure if it's because I stink or my dirty white clothes Smile

choice may be up to the individual... I prefer white so I can see colors properly and easier for these old eyes to see

I got led strip and a dimmer

you can also get led lights that use a remote to change the color

here's some examples

I bought these, and this dimmer ...not sure if dimmer is waterproof, so is wrapped in plastic

cannot vouch for how this works, but looks interesting

edit: bought these too for ease of installation around corners

Yea Popi, Red is what the navy used under darken ship conditions. That makes sense for being easy on the eyes. But what about bugs?

Red is easy on the eyes and won't make you semi blind if you look into the dark immediately after you look at the red.

Question: Is yellow the best for Not attracting bugs, or what is the best? I've heard different answers on this, and just curious. Haven't heard yellow was good?
