Composed of a polypropylene base with a system of silicone gaskets, the ecotop is available in a variety of fun colors, is dishwater safe and is easy to install and remove from most 3in-diameter cups or mugs.

Ronstan’s new Quick-Lock winch handles have a proprietary “auto quick-locking mechanism” that allows you to immediately place the drive head of the handle into a winch socket without first rotating a knob or pushing a button. The handle’s stainless steel locking lever automatically holds the handle in place—no more wasting time lining up buttons in the middle of a tack or gybe.

For those with especially tender tushies, there are also specially designed internal seat pockets into which you can slide a Gill short pad to add some “cushioned support” when sitting on a hard deck.

Honda Marine’s BF2.3hp four-stroke outboard weighs just 29.5lb and has a larger 0.29gal internal fuel tank that in combination with its improved fuel efficiency allows it to run for up to 60 minutes at full throttle. A centrifugal clutch makes switching into gear a snap, and the engine is air-cooled, so you never have to worry about a water pump getting plugged by sand or weeds in the shallows.
