  1. Sailor Jerry Rum

Sailor Jerry professes that its rum was created off the back of extensive ‘…historical research into maritime rums’. It’s made using the old-school methods of sailors, who would improve the flavour of their rum by blending in spices, or if they could be bothered, aging it in wooden casks. Sailor Jerry is a true sailor’s rum, and tastes pretty great too.

Buy Sailor Jerry from most liquor stores (and don’t drink and boat!).

 

  1. Dry Bag

Dry bags are one of the most under rated yet useful items every boatie should have in their life, which also happens to make them the perfect gift. The Marchway floating dry bag is totally waterproof, and comes in a range of sizes – from 5 to 40 litres capacity. It’s also great for kayaking, hiking, camping and fishing.
