Boating is a great way to pass the time and enjoy a hobby you’re passionate about. For many people, boating is simply being out on the water and enjoying that time. While boating is meant to be fairly relaxing, there are also new ways to enhance your boating experience. It’s possible to find technology that benefits any area of life and boating is no exception. Here are some new pieces of tech you can get for your boat. They’d all make great gifts for the holidays!
Weatherflow Windmeter Phone Accessory
This windmeter simply plugs into your phone or connects through Bluetooth. It’s used to detect temperature, humidity, and wind readings. It’ll be incredibly useful for helping you navigate the waters and keep track of the weather conditions while you’re out boating.
Leatherman Tread Multitool Bracelet
Having tools readily available on your boat is always important, because you never know when you might need a wrench or some other tool to repair a problem. The Leatherman bracelet keeps you prepared for any emergency situation by providing an accessory that looks like the band of a watch, but actually provides you with a variety of tools. It can be adjusted to fit any wrist size and comes with Allen wrenches and screwdrivers as a few of the tools on the bracelet.
Fortress Boat Anchors
Boaters and experts alike have identified this anchor as the “World’s Best Anchor” over and over, which is a pretty great endorsement. This anchor is made from high-tech aluminum alloy, which makes it as strong as steel, but luckily for anyone using it, it isn’t nearly as heavy! You can easily dismantle it for quick storage as well.
Yeti Hopper Cooler
This cooler will actually keep drinks cold for days at a time. It’s perfect for weekend boating trips when you want to have cold drinks the entire time you’re on the water. The cooler holds about 30 pounds of ice and can easily be transported on and off your boat. The leakproof HydroLok Zipper comes from survival suits and the fabric of the color is incredibly durable, so you won’t have to worry about it breaking anytime soon.
Chums Floating Keychains
Losing your keys in the ocean would definitely put a damper on any boat trip, particularly if they’re the boat keys. In order to make sure this problem is never one you have to deal with, consider getting a floating keychain! Chums sells a small keychain that you can attach to your sunglasses, keys, or other items and never worry about losing them in the water. The keychain is also bright yellow, so it’ll be incredibly easy to spot in the water.
