Offshore Angler 12V Stainless Steel Power Socket
Good product, good price
I installed three on my center console. One at the front casting deck, one on the console, and one at the rear casting deck.
Very easy to install, comes with nice wiring with waterproof connections and good ends on the wires. Stainless plate with the waterproof plug looks good on the boat, too.
Now I can charge my cell phone or run any other type of powered accessory easily and safely.

Decent unit, but absolutely no instructions. The BassPro website says 1-1/16" dia. hole, but good thing I couldn't find that size hole saw - I used an 1-1/8" and it was still VERY tight going in.
Very short 20 AWG wires are included, but no information on load limits or what size fuse to use on the circuit. Web search was no help - various tables recommended from 1.5 to 20 amps for 20 AWG. I was wiring it directly to my deep-cycle, so I ended up scrapping the supplied wires and using 12 AWG wiring and a 10 amp fuse.

Rugged power socket
This thing is pretty tough, easy to install, and with the stainless steel, it should hold up pretty well to both salt and freshwater. I used it to bring a power source to my Type A son's Blackberry!

Lasting product, easy to install, being stainless you don't have to worry about rust. I installed these in a boat I previously owned and I had no problems with them.
