Perhaps our best Marketing efforts only serve to help them confirm which group they fall into.
There is still a large untapped customer base out there on both sides.
Our industry's job is to "sell the dream", and to quote Alan's earlier comment; Let the rising tide raise all boats".
Gregg, I joined the company in the late 90's, off site, so I'm not the best person to answer the off shore question.
I think the metal fixture that you are referring to is our "work horse" CL507, MR16 flood. It is amazing how many of those we have sold through the years.
I do want to say thanks again for all the well wishes.
By the way; did I mention that we have fixtures for sell?:-).
Good luck to you, Tom!
I installed a Malibu 300 watt capacity transformer into our own lighting system about 2 1/2 -3 years ago.
It works wonderfully, running five MR-16 35 watt well lights that shine up onto the front of our ranch homes's 7 foot Alberta spruces and cedar siding, plus two 11 watt copper pagotas near our entranceway and garage.
No problems whatsoever.
