Cup-holders

I's like to fit a couple of cupholders into the top of my console so I can enjoy a cuppa at low speed, or when fishing without the mug / cup sliding around all over the place.

I envisage units that I can permanently set into the console, fitting fairly flush so a cup will fit - or I could use them for holding small items - mobile etc..

Does anyone know where I can get a couple of these from?

I've just Googled it and there seem to be quite a few online in Chandleries and on the usual eBay/Amazon, etc. A lot do seem to come from the US though!

or you could go painless and simple option, anti slip matting. I have a small shelf on console where I have cut and fitted some ant slip matting. It is perfect, I have a flask with a cup and just place the cup on this matting, it doesnt move at all when obviously just at 6 or 10 knots and when stationary.

BECKSON MARINE Recessed Drink Holders at West Marine

Check the USA marine catalogues - West marine is probably the largest. Many choices.

Thanks for the replies everyone - the West Marine look like the things I'm after, cut 2 holes pop them in & seal them good & tight. White plastic is good will blend in with the console. Even I should be able to do that!

So. Where does the water that falls into these "self draining" cup holders go?

You don't come across as being stupid, so where do you think it goes?
