    Things Every Boater Needs

    Hey everyone, just wrote an article of some of the things that I feel are not talked about or often over looked when you’re a boat owner. Give it a read, thanks.

    I fish in Urban areas where the shorelines has houses stacked on houses and sometimes in downtown Chicago (Chicago River).
    Must have: Dark Poncho and a Pee Bottle. Pee in disguise.
    Bring along a 5-Gallon Bucket or the Pee Bottle Female Attachment for the female crew.
    be well.

    That's a good idea. I rarely fish docks, but when I do and I have to go, it's always one of those things where you have look around and just go. The poncho idea is great because it doesn't take up much room.

    The dark poncho is a great idea. Will need to add that to the boat.
    I carry a small coffee canister for the pee bucket, the blue brand with a handle. It is wide and has a plastic sealing top.

    Used peanut butter jars for baits .... wipe down vinyl 4x a year with Vasoline on a microfiber .... trailer tires 48/50psi .... wipe electronic screens with Windex w/vinegar using a microfiber .... use a 30 foot launch rope or 10 feet longer than the bass boat ....it will save you at the launch many ways

    White gallon Bleach bottle — cap super glued on, bottom cut out lower on one side. It is my pee jug also the required bail bucket.
