sea suckers ?

Yeah my mind went in the toilet for a moment too.
Has anybody used these? They're just another version of a suction cup but if they work like the company claims it would beat drilling holes in das boat for the little things. They claim the 6" ones will hold 210 lbs. I like the idea for the grill mounting ones.

At 4-1/2" to 6" diameters, they have a fairly large footprint.
I've used similar devices to keep my float against the hull,, when in-water cleaning etc.
