For folks who are into stuff that’s made in the good ol’ USA, Quoddy’s been creating shoes and moccasins up in Maine since the early 1900s and they’re now selling a handmade Boat Moc (it comes in various colors) that’s stout, good-looking, and equipped with a gelcoat-grabbing, hand-sewn Vibram sole. The company makes each pair individually—no assembly-line workers need apply. To order, simply do a tracing of each of your feet on a piece of paper and send the tracings off to Quoddy. Takes them from three to six weeks to complete and ship your new Boat Mocs to you.
Absolute Yachts employs magnetic glasses on the 73 Navetta. The glasses are stowed upside down in a dedicated magnet-ready locker, and all table tops have a ferrous layer that allows the magnets to grip. This innovation can help keep glasses upright in a seaway, and keep spills to a minimum.
