If we could only carry one light on the boat this would be it. The PIKA from UCO is a 3-feature lantern that offers great versatility—it can even charge your cell phone! With the head pushed down this light can be carried like a flashlight and projects a focused beam. Pull the head up and you get a functional lantern offering 150 lumens of light. Hang the light from its metal bail in your cabin or under your boom tent. The tough, water-resistant light is rechargeable, but you can also use its battery power to charge your other electronic devices via the lantern's USB port.

Don't be caught out after dark without lights. Many small-boat sailors don't really sail after dark, but we like the idea of being prepared in an emergency situation to make our boat visible. The Be Seen Navigation Lights come as a three light kit, one red, one green, and one white light. Lights are LED with 3-mile visibility and over 12 hours of operation on two coin-style #2032 batteries.
We first saw these handy little lights when Tammy bought them elsewhere for use on her bicycle—another good use. And they've held up well and worked flawlessly for her so far.
These lights are water resistant and offer 3 modes—steady on, blinking slow, or blinking fast. They can be attached using their built-in stretchy loops which are perfect for wrapping a pulpit or railing—horizontally or vertically—or using peel and stick velcro strips. Please note these lights are nor Coast Guard certified and designed for emergency use only. Leave them in their plastic tube and keep a set aboard.

We love the reliable simplicity and trustworthy companionship oil lanterns offer. Sure, they’re lifesavers in a power outage, but they’re also the logical choice on small boats, where they serve as anchor lights and provide general illumination—even warming a cozy cabin on a cool night. And there’s nothing quite as romantic as the soft, golden glow of lantern light.
We recently discovered Feuerhand (firehand), a German company who has been building high quality lanterns since the 1930s. Their lanterns are 100% made in Germany—right down to the last component. The quality is exceptional.
Their little 10-inch “Baby Special” is equipped with a windproof Suprax globe that won’t crack from heat or cold, a lined leak-proof tank, and a durable fully tinned body. The lantern will burn for 20 hours on a single tank. $39.95. Available in silver, red, or yellow. Burns kerosene or lamp oil. Wick included.
We've just started selling the Firebox Nano, an amazing new ultralight, 3" folding stove that can use sticks or other found fuel sources or mate with small alcohol stove, etc. The cross fuel feed make this stove amazingly powerful. Obviously it can't be used on the boat, but at only 6 ounces the Firebox is pefect to leave aboard for beach camping when you want to cook or just have a small fire. See video here.
From the companie's website:
You won't find a disclaimer saying to expect warping because we don't believe in compromising quality to save a small amount of weight. We built the Nano as light as it could be without the common warping problems of other stoves. We use thicker material than any of our competitors for good reason
The 3" Folding Firebox Gen2 Nano Ultralight Backpacking Stove (patent pending) Just got better, We've added position points for the new Nano Sticks (included with stove purchase) this makes the Gen2 Nano perfectly adapted to Trangia Spirit Burner use. Allowing a full range of Simmer Ring adjustment and three head space settings ("Sweet spot" head space of 1" in top position). The Gen2 Nano also accepts the Trangia Gas burner attachment. The Nano Sticks nest into the folded Nano in such a way that they cannot fall out. At only 6 ounces, the Firebox Nano is 3" wide and folds down to a ridiculously thin .25". With its proprietary cross-feed fuel delivery system, this Nano stove can bring 2 cups of water to a boil in 3:10 minutes. Even with all this power, the Firebox Nano is one of the smallest wood burning stoves on the market. Like its big brother, the Firebox Nano is hinged and requires no assembly.
Back by popular demand! Many years ago we printed a batch of Gunkhole Extra Shallow Draught t-shirts and they quickly became SCA reader favorites. Recently we saw Associate Editor, Marty Loken and long time columnist Hugh Horton both wearing their faded and aged original Gunkhole shirts and we decided to release an updated 2018 version. Sizes medium through 2XL. Quantities limited to a few dozen of each color—Seaweed Green or Fog Grey. 100% cotton American Apparel brand t-shirts.
Rotating gear hook for "hanging anything anywhere." The Heroclip, made from aircraft-grade aluminum, has a rubber end cap that allows it hook to grab onto many surfaces. It folds up and down at the waist and rotates 360º and there is a wide-mouth carabiner to hang things. Weight limit 60 pounds.
We brought one of these with us on a recent small-boat cruise, not really sure how it would be used, but sure enough we ended up making it the catch-all "hang-all" for our hat, sunglasses and lantern. Available in black or orange. $18.95
