Mighty Mug re­sists knock­ing and heel­ing

Yachting Monthly - - BOATS & EQUIPMENT -

Non-spill mugs are noth­ing new, but this one’s dif­fer­ent. James Turner takes a look at a novel way of solv­ing the prob­lem.

I’ve come across all sorts of in­su­lated cof­fee mugs aimed at sailors. Some rely on wide bases, great un­til you want to put them in cup hold­ers. Some have sup­pos­edly non-slip pads, but sooner or later an in­ad­ver­tent tack, or a whack with the el­bow will send them fly­ing across the boat. The Mighty Mug is dif­fer­ent. It can be picked up and put down with no re­sis­tance, but a suc­tion mech­a­nism hid­den in the base grips any smooth sur­face. The mo­tion of putting it on a sur­face cre­ates suc­tion, so when it is tilted or knocked, it stays put. It sounds too good to be true, but it re­ally does do as it claims. It’s avail­able from chan­dlers in red, black or stain­less steel in the stan­dard 32cl size, or red or char­coal in 47cl size. It’ll fit most cup-hold­ers and it’s dish­washer safe, too.

When put on a GRP sur­face, Mighty Mug can be tilted a lit­tle… or a lot

A suc­tion mech­a­nism pre­vents the cup slid­ing
