How to Make the Sailors in Your Life Happy This Holidays
The holiday season is on us and if you are like us you are making lists and doing a little (or maybe a lot) of shopping. So, I thought I’d toss out five ideas for gifts for those sailors in your family or your crew. 1. Personal Locator Beacons: It means you’ll honestly turn around a look for him or her. 2. A powerful LED flashlight: You want to see and be seen. 3. A 12-volt blender (or 110 if you have an inverter) so you can whip up healthy shakes or a special rum punch. 4. A watermaker: being able to shower daily is no longer a luxury, right? 5. A subscription to Blue Water Sailing magazine: Yes, that’s a but self serving but we think it is the best cruising magazine and we’re offering a great discount. Order you gift subscription here and enter the code X17.
