Coconut Grove, Miami, FL 25º43.533N | 80º84.321W

A modern marvel, the Jelly Sticky Pad.
Living in a constantly moving environment presents a lot of challenges, including, obviously, keeping things from moving. I spotted these sticky pads at the boat show and was skeptical, but they have proven themselves to be completely awesome.

When we're underway, we stick one of these under the dodger, our 'dashboard,' and set the camera on it. Remember a few months ago when we got tossed around in that inlet? While everything else was flying around, the camera never moved. Amazing.

Since the pads are sticky, they do get dirty (and less tacky). However, a quick rinse with dishwashing soap, and they're back to their original sticky selves.

I have pondered lining the entire boat in these things.
