Unique Summer Accessories

Since we are now well into the summer months, and everyone who has a boat is either already using it or planning on using it very soon, we thought it would be good to talk about a few items that avid boaters might want to add to your "must have" list. We were really excited when we came across the Sailcloth Totes by Reisenthel, which are reusable tote bags made from durable sailcloth fabric with boat rope handles.

In this day and age where reusing unwanted materials to create new materials is so widespread, these tote bags fit right in. They are convenient and have multiple uses because of their spaciousness, full lining, and many pockets, as well as a detachable zippered pouch. Their nautical style features symbols from the international sailing alphabet and rope accents, make them a good accessory for those in the boating community. Having one of these (or multiple) can really make one stand out in a crowd and at the same time, provide a convenient and effective way to store and transport summer essentials. They can be purchased from the Container Store (closest retail outlet is in Bellevue, Washington) or ordered online for approximately $30 (plus tax).

We will continue to talk more about must have's for boaters, and would love to hear from you! If you have any accessories, products, or books that you would recommend to your fellow boaters, let us know and we would be glad to write a blog post about it.
