Miscellaneous Boat

Strapworks.com Before we left, I spent a long time looking for Stainless Steel Cam Buckles, well Strapworks has them!! The aluminum ones turn to powder or seize in short order and at 750 lb test the SS ones can hold down a lot of stuff. They also have webbing, Velcro one wrap, Stainless ratchet buckles, square loops, d-rings, clips and flat hooks . Go for polyester webbing if it will be in the sun or you want it to stay tight when it gets wet, polypropylene for use around the batteries, and nylon for strength down below, tubular webbing is even stronger. The speedy stitcher is a MUST have and they also carry 1/8" line, 1/2" cordage, carabineers and plastic/brass hardware. You can even have your own custom designed webbing pattern or have straps made to your specification.



WetsuitWearhouse.com Now you might be thinking, I'm heading south so that I don't HAVE to wear a wetsuit. If you spend a lot of time in it, even 85 degree water will give you a chill. KT loves a wetsuit because then she can stay in the water for as long as she wants, either chasing Nemo or getting chased by a shark. They have every thickness of suit available, at a minimum think about getting a thin one for sun and jellyfish sting protection.



SeaViewer Cameras Ok so maybe not everyone is on a budget, and we couldn't pass this up because it is so cool. We've tried to capture dolphins or whales from the dinghy or snorkeling but they are usually a little skittish and tend to swim away while we desperately give chase (yes we snorkel after whales).  This system would allow you to sit in the comfort of your own cockpit while enjoying the underwater beauty that is right beneath you. You can also configure it to be more portable for more far flung adventures..



Misty Mate It can get hot out here, I mean really hot. We spray ourselves with water bottles but this system cools the air faster and doesn't get you soaked in the process. They have personal portable misters or systems you could build into your cockpit (just kidding but not a bad idea). I'm trying to get them to add sailing at the equator to the banner below but I'm not sure the market is big enough.
