This might seem too simple for words, but if you've ever tried to stop a bucket sliding when and where you don't want it to slide in a rock-and-roll anchorage, you'll just love this product of the week. A bucket might be one of the handiest non-sailing pieces of gear on a boat, but it can create issues when it slides all over the deck (or, worse, topples), creating a hazard or damage to surfaces.
Bucket Base - why did I not think of that
So, here's a new Bucket Base, which is a sturdy ring designed to minimize bucket sliding and toppling, helping prevent the creation of new scratches across the deck.
Stopping problems before they happen, this non-skid, non-marking ring won't damage boat decks. It helps prevent scratches in fiberglass and teak, while keeping a bucket in place. A bucket won't fall over with brushes in it either.
UV resistant and durable, the Bucket Base, produced by Shurhold, fits most 19-liter buckets.
