Find the Roll in the Rolling Sea

Seasucker Toilet Paper Holder

Feb 7, 2023

Whether it’s in a wet head on a sailboat or a rocking cruiser, rolls of tissue are typically either limp and soggy from exposure to moisture or simply can’t be found. But with the Toilet Paper Holder, when nature calls, SeaSucker is ready to assist.

This no-drill Toilet Paper Holder is a direct response to consumer demand. It relies on SeaSucker’s innovative Vacuum Mount technology – not a common industrial suction cup that quickly loses its seal, the device’s 120 lb. of holding power lasts for days. It mounts quickly yet temporarily to any clean, non-porous surface and can be placed on a side wall, bulkhead or even overhead from the cabin top. And when no longer needed, it’s easily removed to store where the toilet paper will remain dry.

The SeaSucker Toilet Paper Holder is built for a marine environment using durable UV-stabilized rubber and 316 stainless steel hardware. Available in black or white, it costs US$65.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.

The Other Virgin Islands

Sunset off St John

By Mark Stevens

I was first seduced by the United States Virgin Islands during a ferry ride from St. Thomas to Tortola to begin one of our earliest British Virgin Islands charters nearly twenty years ago.

A perfect sunset off St. John with St. Thomas views for backdrop.

Clearing Pillsbury Sound, surrounded by voluptuous emerald mountains as the ferry sliced through royal blue waters, I was struck by the unspoiled ambiance of St. John, the island gliding past our starboard beam and the irresistible charm of a village called Cruz Bay visible from our quarter stern.
