Here’s a handy item to keep aboard your tender for shore excursions, snorkeling, or fishing trips. In fact, it’d be useful at some point onboard just about any vessel, large or small: a waterproof bag, perfect for stowing your camera, cellphone, wallet, or anything else you don’t want to get wet or sand-infested.
The Immersion Bag is made of durable, 650-grade PVC fabric and features two plastic Ziploc-style sliders that keep sand and water out. The company says the bag’s seal is so tight that you can fully submerse it and all your valuables will remain dry. The bag comes in two sizes—large (6.8"x4.8"x9.2") or small (8.4"x4")—and is see-through, for added convenience.
Additionally, the company
has an entire line of dry bags in many sizes and styles—including
large duffle bags, weekend bags, fanny packs, wallets, and document bags
to protect clothes, passports, charts, and other items. Each is available
in a range of sizes and colors and can be imprinted with your boat’s
name or logo.
