1) Check the weather.
A perfectly planned boat party can quickly be ruined by rain clouds! The Dual MMC36BT Marine Center with Weatherband will ensure you don’t get caught up in the storm this season.
2) Build a playlist.
Playlists are a “must” for boating days! Load up your favorite playlist, connect via Bluetooth to your marine receiver or portable speakers with Bluetooth, stow your phone away from splashes and enjoy. Like your music loud? Turn up your favorite tunes with the Dual DMS6516 Two-Way Marine Speakers!
3) Pack a cooler.
Boat days are never complete without the perfectly packed cooler full of your favorite snacks and drinks. Watermelon, PB&J, and subs are just a few of our staples. And don’t forget plenty of water to stay hydrated.
4) Bring a hat and sunscreen to avoid burns.
Nothing is worse than leaving the sunscreen at home and paying for it later. Lather up and wear a hat for extra sun protection – even on cloudy days!
6) Going fishing?
Don’t forget the rod, reel and bait!
7) Get SiriusXM.
Going offshore? The Dual MXD340SXM SiriusXM Receiver will allow you to keep playing your favorite stations long after AM/FM radio frequencies disappear!
8) Stock up on towels and a change of clothes.
Be ready for that errant wave or spur of the moment swim break.
9) Bring a marine chart and GPS.
Knowing where you are on the water is just as important as on land. With many classic marine charts going digital, there are many digital chart options, from tablet based navigation to dedicated chart plotters, fish and depth finders.
