The Giving Season: Gifts for Boaters
Most people will agree that one of the nicest things about the holidays is gifting those we love and watching their faces as they unwrap meaningful gifts. We have put together a list of thoughtful gifts that are perfect for the boater in your life... even if that boater is you.
Here are some of InterMarine's suggestions for Gifts for Boaters.
Army Survival Bracelet
This stylishly rugged bracelet is beautiful and perfect for male or female boaters alike. What's so cool about it is that not only does it look good, it is extremely practical and could help save your life in an emergency situation. The bracelet is made out of stainless steel and paracord that comes apart to perform a number of emergency tasks. The paracord is lead rated to 350 lbs and can be used to build shelters, make snares, fishing netting, splints and tourniquets. This thing can even build a fire. All of that and it's only $9.99 on Amazon. See the specs here.
