Boat Cup Holders

Just got this on my FB feed and ordered eight for $20 to try them out. We don't have cup holders on the FB or cockpit so thought for that price why not.

Something I learned for navigators on submarines. Yes, back in the 60s they still used paper charts as a physical record. I have no idea what they use now.
BUT, NEVER NEVER NEVER put a cup, glass or anything that contains a liquid on the paper chart or within spill distance of a paper chart. If fact you never drink anything near the paper chart. You do not pass a container of liquid over a chart either.
Of course, you donít want liquids near anything electrical or electronic.
I can see using these on the eating table but not within the spill distance of a Nav station.
So, that is just MY opinion.

Well, if you consider the equipment on the FB, out in the elements, I'm in trouble if a can of diet ginger ale or cup of coffee is going to get into them!

No need to tell me, I know that. Just don't ask me how I know that!

Did you learn it in the Navy or from experience on your own boat?

And that's why I no longer have paper charts.

A quote from the 60s, ďThe sweet meat is always close to the bone. If this were not true, why would we bother eating ribs?Ē

Yea yea, I know..... a comment made by sexist, rib eating old man.
