More LED Lights

Before we left the dock yesterday the Captain installed three more LED lights. He also retrofitted two existing lights with LEDs. When he removed the old lights he found THESE!
Wire nuts absolutely do not belong on boats because moisture will eventually get to the wires causing failure and/or arcing. 
It's best to solder the splices and seal them with heat shrink.
So that's what the Captain did. The galley was out of commission for a while, so we went to In-N-Out for lunch.

Here's how the new lights look.

He wired the lights so we can turn on either the left light, the center lights, or the right light. And the Admiral/Galley Slave is much happier now.
