opposite of Daze's thread - what did you buy for the boat that didn't cost a lot of $$, but you don't know what you'd do without it?

we have a dock at the lake house and we're in and out of it 3-4 times a day. best thing we bought was the boat hook on the extending pole from Walmart for $12.99. Makes docking so much less stressful and the boat looking nice!

Ipod cord to connect my IPOD to the stereo

Sled, my daughter has been begging me to IPOD ready the stereo. The catch is that it will be her music instead of the 80's. Not worth it.

2nd the iPod connection

3rd on the ipod connection.. 2 of my boat owning friends have MC's with Disc changers.. they are always having to change discs.. their boats have an aux input by the driver but they are not into the ipod..
I got a cool suction mount pro fit from Crutchfield to keep mine on the window by me.. i prefer some control of mine!

Bimini top and PP on this boat would pull a close 2nd!
OBviously, the boat in itself was the best best!

Agree with you about a bimini. In the south anything that makes shade is a good thing.

I'm with 04 on the Bimini as well and the PP. I don't think my wife will drive for me any more without it. Like Brian at the dealership said when we were putting our build sheet "they don't call it the marriage saver for nothing".

On the IPOD thing I have mine, the wife has hers and my boys have there's. It's a simple matter of who's the biggest, this contest I still win... at least for a while yet.

official moomba suction coozies. I think they will get more use than any accessory on the boat this next season.. :)

I 2nd the suction coozies. Installed Sirius Sat. Radio, that is probably the best thing I've added since buying the boat.

garboard plug installed in the transom for $8.99 so that I don't have to siphon out the water that remains at the stern on my very sloped driveway

+1 on the Z5 and the Moomba swim platform pad, I forgot who makes it but we love it.
