Now here’s a handy item you will definitely find use for onboard. Griot’s Garage offers these sturdy, bright-red plastic crates in two sizes, and they fold flat for easy stowage when you aren’t using them. I asked several of my friends to try them out and let me know how they fared. “They were great for hauling gear to and from the dive boat I was on,” says Alan Lewis. “And once aboard, I was able to slip them out of the way behind our compressor box.” “I like that they can fold up so thin—to less than three inches—for easy stowage in my engine room,” reports charterboat skipper Barry Slott.

The large folding crate measures 191⁄2"x13"x10", and the extra-large version is 22"x141⁄2"x12". They sell for $17.95 and $23.95, respectively, and come with a lifetime guarantee from the company. That means the company will repair or replace them or refund your purchase price—forever. —K.K.
