June 5, 2016

Make your Dad’s day on board easier all season long with a Deluxe Trident Rod Holder, Come-On Board Handle and Shore Power Cable Holder from leading manufacturer Taco® Marine.

Available in straight-mounted and offset-mounted models, the Deluxe Trident Rod Holder features a tool tray to conveniently hold fishing tackle gear and a cup holder for beverages. The strong, durable high polished aluminum three-rod holder cluster fits all standard gunnel mount rod holders and is designed to maximize rod placement and usage on board. Great for kite fishing or as a three rod holder-in-one.

Available in two versions, fixed mount and rod holder mount, the Come On Board Handle features a large grabbing surface and is ideal for boats where constant boarding is necessary. A unique finger molded handle pipe design assures a more secure and comfortable grip. The two-piece handle stores easily in a mesh bag (included) that won’t scratch boat surfaces. Additional receivers for the fixed mount model are available for multiple boarding positions on the boat.

The Shore Power Cable Holder is the ideal way for boats to be hooked up to a power source at the dock. The large ring design accommodates 30, 50 and 100 amp shore power cables and has an adjustable height ring to compensate for low or high tide settings. The holder stores easily in a mesh bag (included) for easy drying if stored wet and to avoid scratching deck or storage surfaces.

We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
