Bluetooth Tracker – Tilemate
Remember the time you lost your phone, only to find it was in the locker room under a big stack of towels? And how many times do the crew car keys go MIA when you need them the most. Thankfully, this new Bluetooth Tile is here to solve all of those problems and then some. Simply attach the small tile tracker to the item of your choosing and when you finally admit it’s actually lost, and not just ‘misplaced’ you can track the item nearby with sound. Did you lose the item further away then the boat? No problem, they’ve thought of that too. Just log onto their website and get an exact GPS location on your item. It’s that easy. Best part is, it’s geared for yachties: it has low maintenance, it’s easy to install and the batteries are made to last up to a year without recharging them (in fact, they email you when it needs replacing!)
While this may not be appropriate for when guests are onboard, we definitely know its an essential for any boat wash-down when they’re not. Keep your music blasting and the beats pumping with waterproof headphones, making sure your work ethic and your vibe isn’t ruined when they get wet. The beauty of this is, you can spend as little or as much as you want given the style of headphones you prefer.
