Gear to help improve your experience for on the water.
A one list fits all for boating and fishing accessories and equipment is manifestly impossible because the size and type of boats and boaters’ uses and preferences vary so greatly. But, that said, it is feasible to compile a list of some products that are likely to come in handy and/or improve the experience for many on the water. That’s what we’ve tried to do here. While a few are higher-ticket items, many require minimal investment and are likely to pay big returns.
Water Resistant Day and Night Camera
With SiOnyx’s Aurora (about $800), boaters can view and record their surroundings in 720 HD anytime, with true day and night imaging. SiOnyx (sionyx.com) says its ultra-low-light technology enables color images and video during the day and twilight, and in near-total darkness. A 1/4-by-20-inch threaded mount can attach it to the boat and review video or real-time feeds on the water. You can control the water-resistant Aurora directly with iOS or Android phones.
