Have a drink?

I'm searching for 'drop-in' drink holders. Sometime ago I saw a model that had a drain tube attached to the bottom; instead of just having drain holes. Anyone know of this style holder? I checked West Marine, Cabelas, BoatUS, Overton's... still can't relocate them. (They're going on my dash; need the tube style to avoid dripping on the ol' electonics....)

If you have any tournyment ski boat dealers in your area check with them. I believe it was Ski Nautique that used them.

The newer Whalers have this style of cup holder also (I have them on the console of my 16 Dauntless). I have also seen them on Trophys. If you have any of these dealers near you you can check with them.

I have 1999 21' Outrage and it has two black holders on the dash with plastic flexible tubes that goes down and out to bypass the gauges/wiring etc.

The Outdoors Center catalog lists them...

FWIW - When I put the drink holders in my console about 8 years ago ( refit #1 ) I used ones with holes in the bottom ( or I drilled in them myself ) and put some plastic tubing on using silcone sealant to seal the connection where the tube joined the holder in the bottom. Worked just fine.

Thnx for all replies. I just received an email from Chuck Bennett (who never fails to come through....), the holders can be ordered directly from any Whaler dealer, if any else is interested:
Part# 1041987 is the large and part#1186329 is the extra large.
These cup holders have a drain hole at the bottom and a clear hose is
attached to it.
The part number for the 7/16" clear hose is 1041490
