5 Accessories Everyone Needs If They Own a Boat

Boating season is upon us.

Having the right boating gear makes your aquatic expeditions much easier, safer, and more enjoyable.

These five boating accessories are must-haves for this summer.

1. Universal Life Vests

Sportsman’s Guide

Safety should always be #1 for any boat owner. Since it’s the law in most places to carry personal flotation devices for each member of the boating crew, you might as well stay compliant with dependable gear.

2. Boat Bag

Sportsman’s Guide

When it’s on a boat, your gear is going to get wet. That includes your clothing. You’d better have a back up set packed in a dry bag like this one.

3. Trailer Dolly

When you need to move your boat but can’t maneuver your truck to drag it, a hand held like this is going to work wonders.

4. Air Horn

If you’re stuck or in a pinch, you can let other boaters know you are in the area with an air horn. They are cheaply priced, and it sure beats yelling.

5. Safety Throw Rope Bag

Seconds count in an emergency situation. When you need to get a rope out fast it’s worth it to have this throw bag.
