Boat Rails for Next Time You Sail

Climbing aboard any boat is a lot easier with railings to grab onto. Find the perfect boat railings for your rig with eBay and shop by brand, region, or offers. Boat railings offer support when climbing out of the water or jumping aboard, but they also give passengers something to hold onto, and are a valuable safety feature that all boats should be equipped with. 

Safety Essentials While at Sea

Don’t take calm water conditions for granted, whether you’re an experienced sailor or just dipping your toes in, we have boating safety tips for your next voyage. 

  1. Always let someone know where you’re going and when you plan to return. Family, friends, and coastguards should know your plans before you set sail.
  2. Don’t overload your boat. Your vessel will have a label with its maximum occupancy, exceeding this many passengers will affect performance and buoyancy!
  3. Ensure life jackets are easily accessible if they aren’t being worn. There should be enough floatation devices for everyone on board. 
  4. Check that your boat has safety flares or beacons, a compass, and a bail out system on board so you’re not caught off guard at sea.
