This Offshore Angler™ Stainless Steel Power Socket provides a handy electrical outlet for plug-in style 12V accessories and emergency lights. Socket includes attached cover for protection against moisture when not in use. Requires a 1-1/16'' installation hole.
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!

Haven't used it yet but simple solid product. The wires it comes with are only a few inches which is ridiculous.

What is the maximum current rating for the socket? There's no indication as to what the size of the fuse controlling the circuit should be. If I use 12 AWG wire instead of the supplied 20 AWG wire (which seems awfully light!), what's the maximum fuse size I should use?
