White PlugsMany people prefer their boat's exterior to be sleek and uncluttered, especially around the cockpit. With SmartPlug Systems' White Non-Metallic 30A/125V Inlet, owners maintain that clean look while protecting their investment from possible fire with the revolutionary SmartPlug.

The SmartPlug is a modern replacement to the traditional twist-type shore connector. It provides 20 times the metal-to-metal contact to reduce arcing, resistance and the overheating that can lead to fire. Because it doesn't twist in, it's easier to use, especially in the dark. The asymmetrical plug slides in straight and is secured with locking levers—no more trying to thread a locking collar.

Easily installed, the SmartPlug has the same cutout and 4-hole mounting pattern as a traditional inlet. The sealed, locking cap and flange are built of flame- and UV-resistant thermoplastic for use in harsh marine environments. It's compatible with all SmartPlug 30A connectors.

October 22, 1955 – August 12, 2017

John Alexander Roy passed away quietly at home on August 12 after a short battle with cancer. He was 61.

Music was in John's blood, playing both trombone and piano, but it was on the ocean that John found his calling. He first took to the water in the mid-60s aboard his father's schooner, the Jeto. Soon after he began his 50-year relationship with the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron (RNSYS) as a junior sailor, instructor, member and Vice Commodore of Sailing.
