It’s a new year.

Like most people around the world, you may have a few new year resolutions. Being an avid boater however, you may have a few unique resolutions you want to accomplish during 2021.

One guess at a potential new year resolution would be that you want to spend more time on your boat with family and friends during the upcoming boating season. It’s even possible that you’ve planned a couple trips to lakes where you can experience some new sights and activities.

Right now, the only downside is that it’s January, and winter is still having a party in your backyard. Everywhere is filled with snow, rivers and lakes are frozen, and your boat isn’t getting in the water anytime soon.

There’s no doubt that you’re itching to put your boating plans into action and get on the water. However, even though you can’t go boating right now, this time of the year is the best time to get ready and to prepare your boat for the upcoming boating season. Performing any necessary repairs on your vessel and, most importantly, getting it ready with brand new boating accessories is a great way to prepare for the upcoming season.

Here are some of 2021’s best boating accessories you should look for this year.

Safety Accessories

Your boating trip is going to be more fun when you are sure your safety is secured. The best way to do this is to get ready for all your safety accessories.

You also must think about yourself and every other person that will be on the boat with you. This is where life jackets become essential. When you are getting brand new life jackets, you must consider the number of people coming along with you along with their sizes and ages. Remember that children and adults need different sizes in order to provide adequate safety.

Safety accessories include, but are not limited to, life jackets, fire extinguishers, navigation lights, distress signals, your registrations, and proper documentation. With this in place, you are good to go. Here are some of the best safety products for 2021:

Now that you’ve secured your safety and that of your friends, you have to remember that the plan is to have one of the most fantastic boating experiences ever! This means you are going to be having water dips, swims, and baths. It’s only reasonable that you bring along towels large enough to dry your body and robes that can protect you against the cold winds.

It’s not a bad idea if the towels are customized for each person too. Aside from bringing a form of class and sophistication, it also makes for easy identification. Towels are meant to be personal, after all. Here are some of the best towels to bring along with you:

You will most likely be out in the sun more than you will stay in the shade-covered areas of the boat since you want to catch all the fun and sun there is. The more you stay in the sun, your skin will become tanned, but prolonged exposure can have very harmful effects. To protect your skin from the harsh ultraviolet rays of the sun, you will need to apply sunscreen on your skin.

This will ensure that you get to enjoy the sun without damaging your skin. You may even need some extras for your friend that forgot to bring theirs. Here are some of the best products to pack during your boating trip:

Oil-Free Sunscreen
