Something for the Boater in Your Life
We know that nobody ever waits until the last minute to do their holiday shopping. So, this is more of a “just-in-case” you want one more nautical gift for a stocking stuffer.
Downeaster Tide Clock
A tide clock is one of the best gifts for sailboat owners. Knowing when the tides change can make docking a boat more manageable. Not having to fight a receding tide means you can simply pull your boat up to the dock and tie it off.
Downeaster has created a stunning tide clock out of brass. It’s six inches in diameter, making it an ideal compromise between being able to read the text and having a compact size. Find it at Walmart.com.
The iBobber is under $90 on Amazon and has a three day shipping time in most cases. Usually, we are pretty skeptical of “gadgets” like this, but we are going to make an exception for this one for a couple of reasons.
This fish finder actually works well and has a 10-hour battery life once fully charged. It reads depths to 135 feet and can even be used to create maps of the bottom. This is a legitimate personal fish finder that you can cast into holes to spot fish. Use it in tandem with a separate rod and let it float in areas you can’t get your boat.
Let the iBobber be your eyes underwater. It’s guaranteed to make you say wow as soon as you see it in action. Video of the iBobber.
Docktail Boat Bar
Well, isn’t this the bee’s knees? This accessory fits right into a rod holder and will keep all of your mixers organized and secure. Finally, someone found a way to put those rod holders to use on the back of that Sundancer 350. It seems way more practical than trolling 5 knots at 4.3 GPH.
Storm Cloud Barometer
Robert Fitzroy, captain of HMS Beagle, was a huge fan of playful barometers (He coined the word “forecast.”). This interpretation works the same way they did back then.
The unique liquid inside the glass crystallizes in different patterns as the barometric pressure changes. Fitzroy used his while carrying Charles Darwin on his famous, five-year voyage. Sitting on your desk or boat, this gift is sure to be a family favorite. For sale at uncommongoods.com.
