Discreet ReceptaclesElectrical outlets on boats are often located where they're easiest to install, not necessarily where they'll be most convenient for the user. Hubbell Marine's 15A 125V Countertop Receptacle can be mounted on almost any vertical or horizontal surface. When power is no longer needed, the device is simply pushed back into its housing, discreetly hiding it from view. The device is so innovative, it won a 2020 Boating Industry Top Product award.

The Countertop Receptacle is engineered for safety and features Hubbell's patented cam-action, tamper-resistant design. Patent-pending silicone gaskets seal off the plug blade slots, preventing water from entering the device. The entire unit is water-resistant against a half-gallon of liquid spilled on it, whether the receptacle is up or down. It's UL 498 Section 146 listed for water resistance, making it ideal for use in galleys and heads. Plus, it complies with NEC 406.5(E) countertop, 406.5(F) work surface and 406.5(H) seating standards.

Using a Hubbell Countertop Receptacle is easy. A simple press pops up the receptacle. To hide it away, it's pushed down until it clicks. Built to last, it's rated for 10,000 open/close cycles. A video is at bit.ly/CountertopReceptacles.

The Hubbell Countertop Receptacle is offered in seven finishes to match any boat décor: polished chrome; brushed aluminum, brass or nickel; powder-coated black or white; and matte bronze. Compact, it needs a space only 4" wide and a depth of 4.7" through a 3.4" hole. It's available in flush and surface mount, the latter of which has a chamfered edge and extends a nominal .09" high. A lock ring holds the device securely in place.

Hubbell Marine Countertop Receptacles are straight-forward to install and it's recommended the power feed comes through a GFCI circuit. It accepts non-metallic sheathed cable, and/or metal conduit with a wire clamp or 0.5" KO. The US MSRP starts at $198.90 USD.

EXPLOSION AND BOAT FIRE AT THE DOCK – WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

 

Dock FireSaturday, July 4th about 4:40 p.m., a boat had just finished refuelling at Bridge Port Marina in Orillia, Ontario when an explosion almost knocked marina President Trevor Lecluse right over. He was about 100 feet away when the fire erupted. Other marina staff were there as well.

Quick-thinking marina staff ensured boat fire was contained, with one Bridge Port staffer grabbing two fire extinguishers and holding the fire off long enough the one person onboard to get off the boat. Staff hit the marina emergency fuel system shut off, but the vessel’s fire suppression system did not deploy.

During these difficult COVID-19 times, it isn’t just humans who need to practice physical distancing; Southern Resident killer whales need space too. Everyone boating on B.C.’s coastal waters has an important role to play to keep these endangered mammals safe.  Here are six easy things you can do to help protect them, and yourself while boating:
 
• Stay 400 metres – about two average container ships – away from killer whales in all southern B.C. coastal waters between Campbell River and just north of Ucluelet.
