How many times has this happened to you? You’re changing your boat’s oil or adding antifreeze to the cooling system or distilled water to the batteries. You reach for a funnel and can’t find one.

You could avoid all this hassle if you had a FastFunnel, a disposable funnel that easily stows anywhere—in your toolbox, galley drawer, or bridge cabinet. It’s made of heavy paper that folds flat and pops open in an instant. Besides the aforementioned liquids, it can be used with transmission fluid and fuel additives. It’s even handy around the galley when refilling sugar and salt and pepper containers.

FastFunnel is available at most Ace Hardware and automotive stores. A three-pack retails for less than $1.50. Bulk packs of FastFunnels are available from the manufacturer. —K.K.
