Trawler Lamp

When we got this boat we were surprised to see absolutely no kerosene lamps (or evidence of their existence) anywhere on it. I guess when you have a generator and huge batteries, you don't even consider them, but we always enjoyed the soft light and traditional looks of kerosene lamps.

When we brought the boat home from 
Sausalito we took the kerosene anchor lamp that some dear old cruising buddies had given us and used it when we anchored near Frank's Tract. And as soon as we got home we ordered this trawler lamp. We used it last night for the first time and it was just as nice as we remembered. Now we just need a proper way to hang it. That bent coat hanger doesn't look too seaworthy.
