Summer is right around the corner, and everyone’s thoughts are turning towards fun in the sun, walks on the beach, and getting out on the water.
Are you looking for a way to improve your time out on the water? Or for a gift for your boat-owning friend? Well, look no further. We’ve got you covered.
Below we’ll guide you through a list of our favorite boating accessories you’ll never want to go back on the water without.
First Aid Kit
A boat can be a dangerous place. You could get a fishhook caught in your skin, cut yourself on the boat itself, or slip on the deck and hit your head.
Having a first aid kit on the boat to tend to these minor injuries can stop you from having to take a trip back to dry land.
Clip-on Cup Holder
On a boat, there’s nowhere to put anything down. So anything light you put down on the deck isn’t going to stay there very long; this causes a problem for bringing a drink onto the water.
With this boating accessory, that problem is a thing of the past. The cupholder clips onto the side of the boat and keeps your drinks upright.
There are a lot of ways you can get cut on a boat. Knives, anchors, fishhooks, and the railing of the boat all pose a threat. However, you can shield your hands from this danger with cut-resistant gloves.
Life jackets are incredibly important to have with you whenever you’re on the water. If worse comes to worst and your boat goes down, you’re going to need a life jacket to keep you afloat and make it easy for rescuers to spot you.
What’s better than catching fish? Cooking and eating those fish while you catch more. This grill clips onto the side of the boat and allows you to cook your catch without having to take a trip back to shore.
This one looks cool. The LED lights go around the boat and make it glow; you can find them in just about whatever color you’d like.
This way, you can match the decor on your boat with ease.
Like the life jacket, this is for the worst-case scenario and one of the most essential accessories for boats. The floating beacon is a distress signal and more reliable than a flare since the flare runs on fire and the beacon runs on batteries.
Paddleboarding has become a popular activity. Paddleboards, however, are big and get in the way on a boat, so having this mount to put the board on the outside of the boat means you can take it with you.
