Welcome to the forum......have a look in the engine room, see if there is a light on.... :-D

Ah! Ok, thanks! Obviously I need to find the engine room light(s) and replace them because it’s dark as hell down there even with the little green light on.

Assuming your 355 is the same as my 356, the engine room light is directly underneath the stairs coming down from the aft deck into the salon. You really need to stick your head into the engine room and look up to see it.

I think there is only one, but if you find another, let us know.

Took me a year to find that little critter. The light under the aft cabin bed is also controlled by the OUTSIDE switch! That one took 3 years to figure out!

Hey all, another lightning question! Are the Florissant lights 12v or 110? There’s one above the galley sink and one in the front berth. Thanks!

12 volt.
But the bulbs are the same for 12v or 120v.

Unless you get into the larger yachts, just about every light installed by the factory in boats will always be 12v.
