These are the top yachting accessories in Panama to create a better experience onboard.
Of all the potential dangers one might face on the water, none has greater destructive potential than fire. Make certain your boat has a working fire extinguisher, and make sure you know how to use it.
It’s a good idea to have the extinguisher checked at the beginning of each boating season – your local fire department can help there. Then mount it in a convenient location. You’ll likely never need it. But if you ever do, you’ll be glad to have it.
There is no better way to find your way back to the dock in the dark or in heavy fog, making GPS an incredible safety aid. And it’s great for fishing too – what better way to remember exactly where those underwater reefs, islands and other unseen hotspots are?
GPS with on-screen mapping is fantastic for keeping kids entertained on the water, especially when navigating areas with islands, wide river bends or other interesting geographic features.
Spare Prop and Wrench
Nothing stops a boat in its tracks faster than hitting a rock or a deadhead, and destroying your prop. Of course, you can always paddle all those miles back to the dock, but it’s more sensible to just carry a spare prop.
It’s equally important to carry a prop wrench – a spare prop is worthless if you have no means of installing it. These are two of the top yachting accessories in Panama.
Choose blankets made from light synthetic materials that wick water – they take up far less room in the storage locker, they dry quickly should they get wet, and they’re every bit as warm as a traditional blanket. You can find good ones at better camping stores.
Snacks and Water
You never know when a mechanical issue or an unexpected storm can find you stuck far from the launch for much longer than you had hoped. While you can use your radio or cell phone to call for help or at least let loved ones know you’re delayed, having water and emergency food makes even the most unpleasant situations far more bearable.
