While the helm provides steadiness to a boat's captain, it's also important for the passengers to keep their balance when the craft changes direction or speed. Accon Marine's Telescoping 800 Series Grab Bar gives individuals something to hold onto when hitting the waves.
Easily mounted on center consoles or the side of a bench seat, it can be installed virtually anywhere an extra hand hold is required. Constructed from 6061 marine grade aluminum or 304 stainless steel, Accon's grab bar provides additional safety for those aboard.
Each bar features a heavy-duty, marine powder coating and solid, 316 stainless steel snap buttons that lock into place. Vinyl hand grips enable users to keep a firm grasp on the bar while the boat is moving and help prevent slips. Its welded design delivers a dependable, long-lasting performance.
Accon Marine's 800 series Telescoping Grab Bar has retail prices starting at $91.69. White powder-coated aluminum bars are in stock while the stainless steel version is made to order. Custom lengths can be made.

Welcome Aboard the “Ocean Harvest” Cruise…Where a “Foodies” Dream Comes True!
We met Bobby Sherlock in Ucluelet on the West Coast of Vancouver Island onboard his Hunter 340, Pegasus, near British Columbia’s Barkley Sound. The Broken Group Islands would be our home, for the five of us, for the next few days. The Broken Group Islands are located are on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, in an area known as Barkley Sound and are only accessible by boat.
With fishing licenses in hand, and after a thorough tour of the boat, we talked with our skipper about the evolution of his unique Ocean Harvest Cruise. It seems like a natural fit for Bobby to lead such an adventure, with his education in outdoor adventure training and having cooked in professional kitchens since he was 15 years old. This former sea kayak guide turned avid sailor, Bobby combines his love of the untamed and unspoiled ocean environment with his love for food. And the best part is – he shares his passions and knowledge with others.
