Holiday Gift Ideas for Sailors

What is in Santa’s bag full of awesomeness this year? Let’s take a look…

First off is the Hook & Moor Boat Hook by Robship. This is a new product to APS this holiday season. This unique telescoping boat hook pivots around itself to allow you to easily lead a line through the mooring ring and back to make fast on your boat.

There is no more need to use a leader line to pull through the heavier mooring line and you don’t need to lie down on the bow to try to reach the mooring ring. It also locks into regular boat hook mode if you just need to retrieve dock lines or perform standard duty.

The Weems & Plath Weather Station is a gift for your already-has-everything sailor. Not something you’ll need on your J/70, but it will make a great addition to your living room or cruising boat. Three dials to read time of day, barometric pressure and a “comfort meter” (which is a combination of temperature and humidity). A classy gift for a classy sailor.

Speaking of classy sailors, what sailor doesn't want some carbon fiber in their stocking this Christmas? And not the type that comes in shards and splinters. These are very high quality Money Clips made by Pirate Carbon. They come in two different widths 1” or 1.6”. The 1.6” even has an RFID blocker to protect the credit cards you put in it.

And last by not least Santa’s bag this year is also a gift to give. The classic Slam Angler Backpack is a perennial APS staff favorite and it’s no wonder why. Waterproof roll top construction and padded laptop sleeve keeps everything inside protected. It’s also just big enough to fit some foulies and an extra layer so you’re never stuck having to put on wet gear again. Smaller exterior pocket allows you to have easy access to keys or tool.

Well that’s everything that is in this Santa’s bag this year. Happy holidays and hope you all sail safely into the new year!
