There are many great waterproof bags on the market today. You may want to get a few different kinds such as a large waterproof bag for extra clothes and towels, a waist bag to keep IDs, and cash close and a smartphone bag. The features you will want to consider are:
Store your valuables out of the way while on the boat
On many boats there is storage under the helm. This is a great place to put your valuables so they don’t fall overboard. You could also buy a standalone glove box/storage locker designed for boats. This will allow you to place small items in the box. You may also have seats that double as storage within them.
Invest in a portable outdoor safe
A portable safe is a perfect solution for storing valuables when you are swimming or away from your boat. Choose a safe that can be easily secured to the boat and has a programmable lock, so you don’t have to worry about carrying the key.
We hope these tips help guide you in keeping your valuables safe on a boat, so you can have an enjoyable experience out on the water. For further protection on the water, protect yourself (and your boat) with Markel boat insurance.
