I think I wrote about my experience with this POS- I propped it up to the hull fitting, got in the boat and as I walked toward the helm, I heard it fall over. I can't see how it's supposed to stay in place when the engine isn't running- the water squirts past the cup and that makes a fine frictionless environment.

You did sir. The FAL was the first thing I bought for my boat. I was uncomfortable with the poor seal, though it never fell out on me. I found it on the clearance table at my local marine store and I actually made some money selling it on craigslist.

If it had a soft silicone seal, a spring-loaded handle and a wide no-slip base, it would be an improvement. I still like the reserve that a bucket or tub that provides.

Somewhere I have seen plastic 55 gallon drums cut in half with a framework on wheels to support it.

When I was a kid we had a tank like that at the marina and just backed the boat up and ran it in the tank and kept an eye on the freeze protection level from dilution. We never drained blocks just ran the boat in this tank until everything warmed up.
