SmartPlug is extending its line of shore cord products with the recent introduction of 50-amp products. Complementing the successful 30A product line, the 50A series is designed for larger boats that had no alternative to the existing shore-cord and adapter system, one that has proved unreliable over time. SmartPlug has addressed the deficiencies of existing power cord systems with a positive connection design that leaves no room for arcing and hence increases reliability and electrical safety.

How often have you seen another boat with no stern light driving at night? These pole-mounted lights catch on lines, get bent by canvas and snap off when used as an emergency hand-hold! Also, when Transport Canada-required 360° lights aren't needed during the day, they're often stowed to save space and eliminate visual obstruction. Rather than removing them, where they can be lost or damaged, Perko's Fold Down White All-Round Lights simply fold out of the way.
