Definition of Task Lighting
Task lighting is a type of lighting used in areas where a specific task is completed. For example, reading, cooking, or preparing bait on the boat’s bait board.
It’s the most functional layer of lighting and therefore shines a brighter white light than ambient lighting and has a narrow directed beam that can illuminate a great distance away from the light source.
Another highly useful characteristic of task lighting is adjustability.
Think about it: if you’re at a worktable or you’re reading, it’s helpful to be able to angle the light closer to the task at hand.
Here is a table compiling types of task lighting that work well in a boat.
“I installed one of these in my Hatteras Double Cabin last weekend, and it is the brightest engine room light I have seen. We can see everything down there for the first time.” JPC, United States
