Seasuckers Newest Offering Really Shines

Utility lighting on a boat is rarely located where needed most, except when the new Heavy Duty Flashlight Mount from SeaSucker is on board. Secured to any dry, non-porous surface in seconds, its 7-inch gooseneck arm will shine the rechargeable LED lamp to the exact spot light is needed.

Made in the USA, the Heavy Duty Flashlight Mount uses a 4.5-inch SeaSucker Vacuum Mount that supports up to 120 lbs. While the flashlight doesn’t need this much holding power, it means the mount won’t shift or fall off at an inopportune time. But if the light needs to be readjusted or put away, it removes in seconds without leaving a mark.

The rechargeable 3.7V 1,500-lumen flashlight has three primary lens settings: high, low and strobe. Its convenient side lamp clicks through high or low white light, red and red strobe illumination choices.

Rugged and completely watertight, this versatile safety equipment and ideal accessory works on any size boat, above or below decks. The SeaSucker Heavy Duty Flashlight Mount costs $99 and comes with a wrist lanyard and micro-USB charging cable.

100A Cable Sets Enhance Yacht Electrical Safety

As luxury vessels add more onboard amenities, so grows the demand for greater levels of electricity. While yachts are docked, Hubbell Marine 100 amp Cable Sets help safely deliver all the power that feature-rich vessels require, in a durable and reliable design.

As the first company that offered 100A marine-grade pin-and-sleeve devices, Hubbell helped establish today’s safety standards for high power systems with the National Electric Code and the American Boat & Yacht Council. To combat harsh, corrosive marine environments, each 100A shore power cable set features stainless steel housing screws, while couplings use a high impact thermoset contact carrier to resist arcing and heat. Nickel-plated, solid brass pins assure long service life and reliable electrical contacts.

UL- and CSA-listed housings feature a super-tough nylon construction for exceptional safety and durability. A gasketed locking ring provides water-tight connections in use. Special keying facilitates proper connector alignment, while massive external cable grips protect the wire against conductor movement which can lead to strain on the terminals.

Hubbell 100A Cable Sets utilize a special compound cable in 3-, 4- or 5-wire configurations, available in white or yellow finishes in lengths from 75 feet to 125 feet. MSRP starts at $6,196. Hubbell also offers models that pair with an isolation transformer or a cable winch system.

The rugged powder-coated aluminum enclosures provide a long, reliable service life. Wiper sweep is adjustable between 40-100 degrees with a left or right park.
