Inflatable PFD with Harness $450
After revamping their lineup of inflatable
PFDs over the past few years, Mustang
Survival has released a new model aimed
at elite ocean EP 38. Singlehanded sailors and racers will be happy to
know that the new model features crotch
straps and an integrated sailing harness,
so it will meet their requirements as well.
Other features include a hydrostatic inflator, built-in spray hood, whistle, internal
storage for IAS, PLBs, strobes and other
electronics and a new membrane that
reduces weight and increases flexibility.
While in use, the EP 38 feels similar to
a dinghy racing PFD, only less bulky.
Movement is unencumbered, and
the jacket is comfortable enough
for long days or nights on the
Oversized Boating Clothes Pins $3.69
Take advantage of the wind and sun and
dry your clothes in the fresh air this season.
These oversized clothes pins will keep your
towels or other laundry from blowing away
or falling in a wet heap on the deck. They
are made from thick, durable plastic and
have large teeth for ample gripping power.
Their extra large size also makes them useful for organizing cables or other gear. And
they come in a range of cool colours.
Floatation For Handles
The Handle Mate PFD slips over your
brush handle, boat hook, landing net handle or gaff hook to protect the surfaces of
your boat from scratches, dings and scuffs
that can be caused by aluminum handles.
Additionally, it is comfortable and warm
on the hands and ensures that the tool will
float if accidentally dropped in the water.
An included foam insert can be inserted
into hollow handles to provide additional
floatation so never lose another
boat hook overboard again. shurhold.com
Bucket Grate $11
No matter what you use to wash your
boat, whether a sponge, rag, mop
or brush, it inevitably picks up dirt and
debris. This debris is then transferred into
your wash bucket. You can filter out the
unwanted debris with a bucket grate. The
grate sits at the bottom of your bucket
and allows contaminates to settle to the
bottom, out of reach of your cleaning tool.
The grate also acts to clean brush bristles.
As an added bonus it comes with two
measuring cups for measuring soaps and
