Cutting-Edge Containers Keep Food Fresher
Nano silver technology has been employed by NASA for water purification systems and the medical field, especially in surgical tools, to prevent bacterial growth. Now RV owners, boaters and other outdoor enthusiasts can use the same science to protect their food with the Nano Silver Food Storage Kit from InterCon Marketing.
The nano silver process incorporates bits of silver that prevent bacteria and infections.
The Nano Silver Food Storage Kit includes 14 rectangular, BPA-free plastic, refrigerator- and freezer-safe pieces: two 15-oz., one 30-oz., one 44-oz., two 27-oz. and one 47-oz. containers with lids. They’re microwave and top-rack dishwasher safe.
The price of the Nano Silver Food Storage Kit from InterCon Marketing is $39.95.

Rocker Stoppers Ease Boat Roll
Boat roll while at anchor or drift fishing can be uncomfortable and nausea-inducing. Rocker Stoppers from Davis Instruments help dampen this sensation with a device that is easily configured and installed.
Rope is strung through Rocker Stoppers at equal 18-inch intervals with a 5- to 10-lb. weight. Three Rocker Stoppers per side will steady boats up to 26 feet long. For larger craft, a graduated scale of 4 to 8 units per side help stabilize boats from 27 feet up to 50 feet. They are effective on power and sailboats.
Without a weight, they assist drift fishing by slowing movement.
Only 14 inches in diameter, Rocker Stoppers nest together neatly for storage.
The price of each Rocker Stopper is $12.99.

Smaller Tank Vent Valves Cut Cost
Perko has introduced new, smaller tank vent valves. Almost half the size of previous models, the valves are easier and less expensive to mount, yet breathe just as well.
Three versions are available: flanged, threaded and swivel. Flanged valves are small enough to mount using the same flange diameter and SAE bolt circle as boat builders have been using for years.
Threaded versions need only a 1-inch NPT receiver. Swivel models, for aluminum or plastic tanks, rotate freely and seal with a double O-ring, which eliminates mounting orientation and hose torque issues.
The valves’ reduced diameter results in a smaller tank cutout and their lower height requires less clearance between the fuel tank and deck.
