Hi Roy,

If you check a lot of the xmas lights in shops sold as 240V come with a mains transformer that steps the 240Vac down to 12Vdc. Ii should be a case of just sniping the wire coming out of the transformer and wiring it into a cigerette lighter plug with a suitable fuse. Again the transformer will normally tell you the voltage and amp output, so use a fuse about 25-50% higher than the output.

Roy,

Just spotted this, http://www.christmastimeuk.com/browse.php?action=view&cat_id=2&subcat=24

Car christmas lights, will work just as well on the boat and saves all the messing about.

or try looking for LED Christmas lights. I don't know if they're available in the UK yet, but they have a very low power consumption

Maplin stocks the transformer that Gary has, and it's now £19.99

It's called  the 'MP75 Invertor' and the product code is A20FC.

It's suitable for equipment rated up to 75W

Think I might get one of these myself!
