Sailing Stuff

We are sailors, we sail.  Here are couple of choice items we love.  We left out the lines, foulies, hardware, sail ties, etc., but  please, eheh-ehem, feel free to shop on our affiliate link for any of those items tho, ehem, many thanks, lol.   

How this works

Sea Odyssey is linked to Amazon through affiliate links on this page.  By using these links, we get paid a little something by Amazon for advertising for them.  It’s not much but every little bit counts and is a great way to support our content at no extra cost to you. 

We have put together only the items we would ordinarily recommend.  We will not deliberately recommend something just for the money.  That isn’t what this is about.  We are trying to help you by passing on our user experience. 

In the end, the choice is yours.  We are just sharing our experience. 

What if I don’t that size or color?

Once within Amazon through one of our links, you are able to move around as you normally would to shop.  If you want a different color, size, quantity, or a whole different item, no worries.  We will still get credit if you entered Amazon through one of our links for 24 hours.

Please let us know if you find any technical or link issues

Thank you so much for your support!

Sea Odyssey Star
~ our top pick~

A fun gadget.  We can tack the boat, which works well.   Boat monitoring and mapping.  It’s pretty cool.  

 

Not the brand we have but you need this.  Trust me.  Everyone needs this.  A total game changer.  We were constantly thinking boats were too close.  Now we know for sure our swing radius.  No more arguing.  The facts speak for themselves.

The quality that lasts and lasts and lasts.  Brass grommets, embroidered stars, heavy-duty, everything you need to stay flying. 

The link is to their website so you can see for yourself.

Great to have your courtesy flags before you get there.  Running around a new town sucks.  These little sets are great.  Get all the neighboring countries also.  You’ll end up where you didn’t expect for sure.

Again, great to have your courtesy flags before you get there.  These little sets are great and this one has a quarantine flag also. 

We all have our favorites, don’t we.   Team Mantus.  Went the next size up and don’t regret it one bit.  Great anchor.  

Sea Odyssey Star
~ our top pick~

Our secondary/aft anchor.  Lightweight so easy to deploy and bring up.  Only used this twice so far and so far so good.  

Innovative integrated swivel design and shackle. 

Tip ~ always do a freshwater wash down to wash salt and sometimes mud from inside the swivel.  

There is a bit of controversy with this chain hook and we get why.  The hook itself is amazing.  Done deal.  The rubber band is the issue.  I think we have figured out why some bands are tearing… blasting it thru the opening for the chain.  It gets hung up then at that opening.  It needs finessing through that opening and all is good.  It ain’t great, but it is what it is for now.

We have the model from Costco same maker.  Very durable and waterproof.  Would recommend getting this rechargeable one, better.  We use ours on every night sail to shine on the sails for trim and to work the lines.

Love this.  We don’t have this particular model but wish we did.  Ours is rechargeable but not with USB.  Still great tho.  Zapping instead of smacking keeps the walls, curtains n’such blood free.  It’s real. 

Sea Odyssey Star
~ our top pick ~

Sturdy with pockets.  Be sure to also get a harness.  If you have ever sat down on a swing at a park, that is literally all this is, a board.  Some salties only use a board in fact, not us.  Get harnessed in.  Ours is Miguel Miranda, MIRA 16 from Spain, very happy with it.  Feels professional grade, perfect.

Hand bearing compass is a must-have obviously.  This particular model glows in the dark. 

Tip ~ What if I told you GTLS compasses are available.  Look into it… very cool.  Two thumbs up on ours.  That’s why this made it as one of our top picks.
