The Accessories Thread

Inspired by the discussion about euro boat interiors, I'm curious to know the range of 12VDC appliances out there.

The rules are: If you know of a 12VDC appliance (preferably for marine use), whether for sale now or not, post what it is and a link to a picture.

One of each gadget only, please - but the stranger the better!

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

I have to have my 12 volt soldering iron...because a butane sodler torch is not much use for delicate curcuit boards.

12volt dinghy inflator (Also works on sheep)

12 volt trolling motor (mostly used as the dinghy outboard, but we have used it as a bow-thruster off the bow-roller for getting out of an impossibly tight raft-up / cluster f^&k)

12 volt cordless drill. Normally just functions on its own battery, but I have made a cord that turns allows it to run off a cigarette-lighter socket. This drill runs several kitchen gadgets including a blender and spice grinder, Has a water-pump attachment that allows it to augment the bilge pump or get into difficult areas (in theory it will even do fuel or water transfers)...as well as doing general boat-work.

What would you do with a dinghy inflator and a sheep? You're not a Kiwi are you?? Maybe I shouldn't ask!

You might be able to fit your sheep in a Magic Wash Portable Washing Machine! That would make him all fluffy-like...
