7 Best Gadgets for Your Boat
Want to upgrade your experience on the water? We’ve compiled a list of the best boating accessories that will improve the fun and effectiveness of your time on the water.
1. Boat Erasers
Do you have scuffs along the bottom of your boat from bumping into the dock so many times? Boat scuff erasers will have your boat looking shiny and new in no time. With a little elbow grease, you can get rid of black dock marks and other imperfections on your boat.
2. Fun Hats
Hats are an ideal accessory for a day on the water since they help protect your face and your head from the sun — they also make a perfect birthday or anniversary gift for someone who logs a lot of water time. A simple baseball cap that says “captain” is a great choice, but you can also find funny caps with slogans like “Boat Hair, Don’t Care.”
3. Aqua Socks
There’s nothing more unsettling than stepping into the muddy bottom of a creek or inlet as you drag your boat ashore or go for a dip with the kids. Protect your feet with sturdy aqua socks, which will keep them safe from rocks and other detritus in the water. They dry off quickly and come in lots of bold colors for those who like making a statement with their feet.
4. Boat Trash Bag
How often do you end up using a random plastic bag to corral trash on your boat, only to find it’s flipped over the side when you weren’t looking? With a boat trash bag, you can keep your trash on board and dispose of it properly once you get back ashore. The bag can hook onto a railing, and even small ones can hold an impressive amount of trash.
You can also get a trash bag holder if you want to stick with your disposable trash bags. Add one to the boat as the designated discarding spot.
5. Boat Cleaning Wipes
Your boat needs careful cleaning to remain an attractive, functional space. Use boat cleaning wipes on the wheel and all the other frequently touched places throughout the boat.
6. Pontoon Grill
How fun would it be to grill your favorite food while you’re out on your boat? A pontoon grill hooks onto the railing of your boat and lets you cook up a small feast to enjoy as you cruise. Bring a cooler of grillable food on your next trip, and you’re set.
7. Boat Hook
Need to pull your boat into the dock? Use a boat hook, and you won’t even have to hop out of the boat to guide it. An effective boat hook will include a telescoping feature to become longer when you need extra length to reach the dock. It should also float if you accidentally drop it in the water, making for easier recovery.
Finding neat boat gadgets makes your time on the water even more fun. You’ll also want to be sure you have all the accessories you need for your dock, too. Browse the dock accessories available from EZ Dock to find the pieces for your next outing.
