2018 Cruising World Holiday Gift Guide for Sailors: Gadgets and Gear - Cruising World

Want to get some cool shots of your boat under sail or in that postcard-perfect anchorage? Try your hand at drone photography. The Eagle 3 Pro has a 328-foot range, can do 360-degree flips and tricks, and can capture it all on the built-in Wi-Fi camera. Using the free app, you can watch streamed footage live and take photos. Priced under $50, it’s a good starter drone.

This might be the ultimate splurge — but it’s really cool! The PowerRay Wizard Underwater Drone ROV Kit allows you to explore the underwater world from the comfort of your boat. The ROV comes with a 210-foot tether, batteries and chargers, a 64GB memory card, a pair of Zeiss VR One Plus virtual reality goggles and more. Use it to explore underwater environments up to 98 feet down, locate fish and inspect boat bottoms. The ROV records in 4K UHD video and captures 12MP still photos.

While your cruising boat is great at getting you where you want to go, you need something smaller and more maneuverable to explore once you get there. The Oru Haven is a tandem kayak that folds down to the size of a suitcase — . It’s made of 5mm double-layered custom-extruded polypropylene and can comfortably hold two adults and their gear.

No matter how long you’ve been at sea, you want to look nice when going ashore. Damp conditions and cramped lockers can sometimes make this a challenge though. The Musto Effortless , which is available in men’s and women’s, shirt solves this problem. The shirt is made from a 4-way stretch fabric that has quick-dry and moisture-wicking properties. What makes it effortless? The shirt’s anti-crease construction is made to look great pulled straight from a bag.

Perfect for cooler evenings onboard when you want to be cozy under the stars, the Firebelly down trail quilt from Kammok is rated to 30 degrees F. It’s not an ordinary down quilt – the soft ripstop nylon fabric is abrasion resistant and has been treated with a durable water repellant, and the insulation is 750-fill DownTek, a responsibly-sourced down with a PFC-free water repellent treatment. DownTek absorbs 30 percent less water and dries 60 percent faster than untreated down, so it will retain more loft and keep you warmer after exposure to moisture. The quilt only weighs 24 ounces and can easily pack down into a stuff sack.

There isn’t much that’s more annoying than putting your bag down in the dinghy and having it soak up any water that’s pooled on the floor — especially if your bag was filled with clean laundry. The Mustang Pacifica weatherproof duffel solves that problem. Waterproof bathtub base means you can put this bag down anywhere, and water resistant lid completes the weatherproof design. A removable foam liner protects fragile gear and removable shoulder straps allow you to carry the bag like a backpack.

Helly Hansen’s new Lifaloft insulation is the result of a collaboration that combines the company’s Lifa fibers with Primaloft insulation. The new Lifaloft offers increased warmth, lighter weight and superior moisture management when compared to traditional polyester insulation. Lifaloft is available in a range of products including jackets and vests for men and women. The women’s Lifaloft Insulator Vest is lightweight, packable and versatile.

Looking for something to keep you warm on chilly nights aboard — but also looks luxe? The Pretty Rugged brand was launched in 2016 by Tracy Slocum, great-great-great granddaughter of famous circumnavigator Joshua Slocum, when she wanted a practical yet beautiful blanket to warm up with on the boat. Pretty Rugged blankets are made with faux fur on one side and waterproof, windproof RuggedTex fabric on the other. It comes packed in a waterproof duffel bag, is machine washable and can be embroidered.

If boots can handle the rigors of commercial fishing in Alaska, they can handle the cruising lifestyle. The Xtratuf deck boot is easy to wear and comfortable, but more important,...

‘Right To Repair’ Stories From Our Listeners

Richard, from Connecticut

“You just talked about the Apple [iPhone] shutting down, and that actually can be a safety issue, but I’ve got a better one. I live in a maritime community, and one of my colleagues has a boat that he re-powered with a John Deere marine diesel a number of years ago. And he’s constantly had problems with it breaking down and has to get someone to come 100 miles that’s factory certified to look at it — they still haven’t been able to figure it out. But the big issue is, John Deere will not allow a workaround, so if you’re out in the middle of the ocean and you’re calling about the boat or something, and your diesel breaks down, a diesel engine is the simplest thing to keep going except John Deere makes is impossible to fix while you’re at sea, and that’s life-threatening. You could go up on the rocks, you could lose your life.

“This has happened to [my colleague] where it’s broken down and he’s had to limp in ways, not using his engine. If you were out in the middle of a storm — fortunately it hasn’t happened so he hasn’t lost his life — but he is very concerned. He is trying to figure out how he can re-power the boat because he thinks the John Deere marine diesel is unsafe. We’ve actually been trying to get in touch with the Coast Guard, their excuse — not the Coast Guard but John Deere — is, ‘Oh, we have to have it this way because we have to meet certain standards for the environment, for energy efficiency and things like that, so we can’t let you disable our computer system to be able to start it.’ It would be very simple if you could disable all of the extra junk that they put on and disable the computer, you could run a diesel engine all day long without any power except to run and start it.”

Benjamin, from Tennessee

“I’m an Apple service technician at a local authorized provider here in Johnson City, and especially when it comes to Apple stuff, it’s been a real hassle for a lot of people where there’s not an official Apple store within almost 150 miles of us. We get a lot of people who brought their stuff in [saying], ‘I had to have my screen fixed at another store, I had my battery swapped out at so-and-so other retailer,’ and suddenly I have to tell these people, ‘Unfortunately I can’t work on your device anymore because Apple won’t let me.’

“It’s incredibly frustrating, because a lot of the times it’s just like, ‘Oh, you know, I took it down to my friend who works on this stuff all the time, and all he did was open it.’ Unfortunately, from there, even then, Apple is just like, ‘Oh, hey, if it’s a 6S or newer, they opened it and they can’t put the adhesive back on, we can’t say definitively they didn’t do anything else.’ So it’s going to be a whole new phone replacement.”

Theresa, from Vermont

“I myself was asked by two state senators to testify in front of the state of Vermont legislature about this very topic. And we had a conversation on Vermont Public Radio, and there’s just so many aspects of life where this comes into play. And I myself own a computer and cellphone repair shop, and see these problems every single day. And really, where it’s become frustrating, is obviously, I’m kind of on the cusp of, ‘Well, maybe I won’t have a job in five years because I won’t be able to do much with people’s devices.’ But not only that, you see people spending thousands of dollars — I had a customer come in just the other day with a brand new iPad Pro 12-inch, and his charging port wouldn’t work, and he asked me, ‘Hey, how much is it going to cost to fix this?’ And I had to basically explain to him that not only was...
