  • Non-skid deck shoes (or sea boots) with non-marking soles.
  • Heavy-duty gloves (preferably leather) for line handling (fingertips cut off is OK).
  • Warm clothing head to foot (Note: The ambient temperature on the water is usually lower than on land).
  • Foul-weather gear
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Knife on lanyard
  • Whistle on a lanyard
  • Food and drink
  • Headlamp or flashlight
