Hook, Rattle & Roll with Revolve

Space is always at a premium on our vessels—especially for the long, skinny stuff like boat hooks, those indispensable tools that are sometimes awkward to store in a cramped locker. Thankfully, PYI now offers a solution with the Revolve Boat Hook, which can extend up to 75” but can be rolled up to fit in a space measuring less than 5-by-5-inches. Using a flexible composite material, the Revolve weighs less than one pound and can be unrolled and snapped into a durable rigid tube in seconds. Once extended, the non-slip, injected-molded material has a push/pull pressure rating of 66 pounds, allowing boaters to retrieve dinghies, tenders, jet skis, and buoys with ease. The weatherproof hook even floats in water in case it’s dropped overboard. $105.48 // Available from Fisheries Supply in Seattle, fisheriessupply.com

San Juan Sea Salt Seasoning by the Seashore

It’s prime time to stock the galley for those late-summer parties. For such a purpose, San Juan Sea Salt—which recently opened its first bricks and mortar outpost in Friday Harbor—offers this San Juan Blend of organic seasonings, featuring the irresistible flavors of garlic, paprika, parsley, celery seeds, and sea salt. The versatile blend pairs well with most dishes, but the company recommends it for seasoning on French bread, tuna salad, and corn on the cob. Other available varieties include a Brewery Blend, using Goathorn chili, thyme, and cumin spices, or a Roman Blend to add some Italian oomph to your marinara. $13 for 3.75 oz. jar; $20 for 9.4 oz. refill // sanjuanislandseasalt.com

A Filson Shirt for Intrepid Anglers

For all who go down to the docks with a rod-and-reel in hand, Filson has a stylish, warm-weather shirt for you. The Twin Lakes short-sleeve sport shirt is appropriate for all boating occasions, made with elastane in recycled polyester-blend weave, a vented yoke, and a mesh lining. The breathable shirt blocks UV rays and wicks away moisture on hot days, yet is stretchable enough for unrestricted movement. The shirt also comes in a solid stone-blue or gravel-gray plaid for a more conservative look, but we were most taken by this charming offshore catch print, featuring a jaunty mix of fishing boats, lures, sportfish, and reels on a black background.

Where’s My Jacket?… Sloop! (There It Is)

If you can’t find where your coats, beach towels, leashes, or hats have disappeared during the summer chaos, perhaps it’s time to help organize the clutter with this rustic sailboat wall rack. As part of the Euro Coastal line of accessories from Nautical Luxuries, this minimalist yet functional artwork uses weathered metal and sanded wood to depict three elegant sloops gliding along the walls of your foyer or mudroom. At the “keel” of each boat is a sturdy metal hook to keep your everyday items up off the floor and easily within reach. Imported from Spain, the wall rack adds a touch of modernist, sophisticated order to your home or salon. You’ll have a tidy house before you can say, “shaka-laka, shaka-laka…” $56 // nauticalluxuries.com

Goodr Mt Rainier Sunglasses

Nothing Looks Goodr Than Summr Shades

ZZ Top knew it all too well: the right pair of shades makes all the difference in a cool summertime look. Thus, the folks at Goodr have teamed up with the National Park Foundation to celebrate America’s greatest public lands. The 12 parks in the series run from Acadia to Zion in a variety of fun, vibrant colors, but we’re partial, of course, to these pastel-pink Mount Rainier National Park frames with mirrored blue lenses and a “peek-a-boo” graphic of the peak’s profile. Made with grip-coated plastic and glare-reducing, polarized lenses that block harmful UV rays, the classic lightweight frames can standup to the elements all summer long. But the Rainier shades are a limited edition only, so be sure to get ’em while the going is goodr! $30 // goodr.com
