Are you the person that always has the coolest new products? Well there’s good news for you, as there are plenty of boat gadgets and other cool boat stuff out there that are sure to leave your fellow boaters in envy. Here at Dripper Guard, we’ve outlined just a few of our favorite new boat accessories we’ve recently come across. Some of them are practical, while some of them are not so much, but did we mention they’re super cool?
Regardless, here are our top ten best items to add to your boat for a more fulfilling boating experience:
Paws aboard! With this sweet boat accessory, your pups can take a quick dip and hop back into your boat easily with this cool concept. It can even make it easier for smaller children to get in and out of the water without assistance. The ladder is lightweight and easy to attach and remove, making it a good time for everyone.
Scrubba - the world’s smallest washing machine
Great for those long boat trips, the Scrubba wash bag is the ideal way to wash clothes quickly and efficiently on the go. Simply fill the bag with clothes, water, and detergent, then close then close the bag. Rub the clothes against the internal washboard and you’ll have clean clothes in a matter of minutes. The bag is small enough to fold up and fit into a pocket, making it a perfect small boat accessory to keep around for those days you need to freshen up before docking for dinner.
Waterproof Dry Sack
For your clothes and other items that you want to protect from the occasional splash, a dry sack is a must on your boat. They are lightweight and can easily be tucked away in the cabin or under the seat, so you can rest assured that your valuables are in good hands, even if water finds its way into your compartments.
Water Leak Detectors
If you find you are having issues with leaks popping up in random places like your storage compartments, these handy little alarms will let you know the moment they detect water with a loud whistle. This ensures that you can solve any potential leaks before they become costly.
If you don’t already have one of these for capturing your boating adventures, you need one. You can mount these bad boys to the bow, stern, mast, or any part of your boat for that matter without worrying about it taking a beating. Get high-quality footage of your family and friends tubing, wakeboarding, fishing, and everything else you use your boat for with this shockproof, waterproof, and dustproof camera. Plus, you can get them relatively cheap used online.
Cordless Margarita Maker
When you’ve dropped anchor, have Jimmy Buffett blasting, and don’t have a care in the world, you more than likely get a craving for a frozen concoction of sorts. This is the boat gadget you’ve been missing. No generators necessary as Mr. Buffett created this contraption with you in mind for margaritas anytime, anywhere.
For those of us that like to keep boat maintenance logs or ship log’s the old fashioned way, waterproof paper by companies like TerraSlate is the way to go on the boat. They can even make custom waterproof prints for boat decals and signage to fully trick out your boat with your own personal touch.
With this handy tracker, you can make sure your boat doesn’t depart the dock without you, or even update friends and family on your whereabouts throughout your cruise. This is the ultimate lifesaver if you, or a child taking out their friends, ever gets lost out on the water.
Waterproof Power Bank
Having a reliable way to charge your phone without concern for your boat’s battery or potential water shock is a huge plus when you’re miles away from the nearest wall outlet. Having a waterproof power bank handy will ensure all your devices are ready to go when you come back in from the water.
