Boat Gear & Gadgets

A List of Our Favorite Gear & Gadgets

When you first start boating, you will spend a lot of time and money on procuring boat gear & gadgets.  Scott and I made a list of all of the things we needed and about a month before we bought the boat began buying our supplies. They ended up in our living roa list of some of our key items and links to purchase them for your ee below. As I buy more things, I will continue to add to this list. Some things were already on it, such as the basic orange life preservers, but that was about it.


I will continue to add items as I remember them. We also bought everything we would need for personal use including galley ware, linens, etc. I will start that list next!

Galley Gadgets & Other Boat Stuff

When provisioning your boat, think of it as your home. When you prep dinner, you know what drawer has the spatula in or the bottle opener. It’s really like starting from scratch and buying the things you might use most often (i.e. bottle openers, knives, etc). Here’s a starter list we worked off of.


We also stocked our bathroom with all of our regular toiletries, so we don’t have to pack those up each weekend too.
