People Safer With A Hubbell Marine ELCI Kit Installed
In a marina, people occasionally fall off a deck or dock. If there’s stray electrical current in the water, the accident is potentially deadly. The solution to avoid this scenario is to install an ELCI system, which automatically shuts off the AC power supply if a ground issue is detected. Hubbell Marine offers a variety of ELCI Adapter Kits incorporating its proven 30A or 50A shore power inlets to provide a matched look onboard.
Hubbell Marine ELCI Adapter Kits come with a shore power inlet and one or two blank matching housings for adding a third-party sensor, or also a circuit breaker. The included mounting plates fit most ELCI components, utilizing industry-standard hole spacing for simple installation.
Like its shore power inlets, Hubbell ELCI Adapter Kits are polished stainless steel. A durable white non-metallic material is optional for the 30A model. Ideal for OEM or refit use, quality construction and self-closing covers ensure protection from the weather and a long service life. Stainless steel mounting hardware is included.
The complete ELCI Adapter Kit with inlet and two blank housings is offered in 30A, 125V stainless steel (HBL303SSELCI), 30A, 125V non-metallic (HBL303NMELCI) and 50A, 125/250V stainless steel (HBL504SSELCI). Hubbell Marine has seven kit configurations with pricing starting at $352.
Seasucker Cup Holders Are Always Within Reach
The trouble with cupholders on many boats is that they always seem to be out of reach. SeaSucker 1, 2 and 3-Cup Holders mount virtually anywhere there’s a clean, non-porous surface on board – including the outside of the hull – and remove without leaving a trace.
SeaSucker 1, 2 and 3-Cup Holders utilize a powerful 4.5-inch Vacuum Mount that holds an impressive 120 lbs. Unlike a common suction cup, they don’t lose their sealing force as soon as they’re applied.
Made in the USA, SeaSucker 1, 2 and 3-Cup Holders are built for continual outdoor exposure using UV-stabilized rubber and 316 stainless steel hardware. The cup holder inserts are removable for easy cleaning and can be swapped for a SeaSucker Small Dry Box.
Offered in black or white to match any marine décor, SeaSucker 1, 2 and 3-Cup Holders come in vertically-mounted models, and horizontal versions. Cup Holder prices start at $59; the Small Dry Box is $19.99.
Durable Shipmate Pick Is A Versatile Precision Tool
Anyone who spends time on boats knows that a good quality pick is an invaluable tool for a wide range of tasks. Compact enough to easily access hard-to-reach spots yet sturdy enough to chip block ice, Beckson Marine’s Shipmate Stainless Steel Pick is the ultimate boater’s companion.
Crafted with a sharp, tapered, stainless steel blade, Shipmate is ideal for a variety of everyday jobs. It excels at making pilot holes, testing for wood rot, punching through leather, scraping dried-up caulking out of tight places or even pinning fish to fillet boards for safer cleaning. Aboard the boat, in the truck, on the RV or around the house, Shipmate is an incredibly versatile tool that always seems to find new uses.
Each Beckson Shipmate Stainless Steel Pick is built to last. Its durable, corrosion-resistant marine resin handle is sized for comfort and slightly squared to keep it from accidentally rolling off counters or decks.
The original Shipmate measures 7-inches overall, features a distinctive blue handle with a 4-inchblade, comes with a sheath and retails for $41.35. A boxed set with the pick, sheath, mounting clip and screws is $48.95. For those who prefer a more compact pick, the “shorty” Beckson Shipmate measures just 5.5-inch L, with its 2.5-inch blade set in a stylish black handle. With the included sheath, it retails for $40.25. All make great gifts for holidays or other special occasions.
