- LED under cabinet lighting
Re: LED under cabinet lighting

We went with a 4 colour led, needs to be attached to a aluminum strip, for the heat sink. Has a diffusion cover.
Went with a wired controller, it has dimmer, 3 white colour choice, took the power from the galley exhaust fan.
Lots of choices these days.

We added a bright white LED string under the cabinet above the sink and extended it all the way to the port most locker. Lots of light

It's always a little dicey doing what you suggest. Part of the reason is that on a boat "24V" isn't ever really "24V" It can range up to almost 29V depending on your battery charging scheme. LEDs that are setup for a constant 24V might have a shortened lifespan driven at high voltages.
I KNOW you can find marine grade LEDs and controllers to do exactly what you want that will be honestly rated for 10 to 30V. You might pay a bit more, but...
We did basically the same thing, except with plain white LEDs. What a difference: Cooking in the galley with BRIGHT lights!
