12 Days of Holiday Discounts

By Carolyn Shearlock © 2014 • all rights reserved


I’m really excited to announce that The Boat Galley is teaming up with a number of other companies – some big, some small – to offer 12 days of discounts for the holiday season.

Starting on (US) Thanksgiving Day – Thursday, November 27 – every day for 12 days a new discount will be revealed. Most are exclusive to The Boat Galley readers and range from free worldwide shipping to 20% or more off on a wide variety of items (no, I’m not going to spoil the surprise and tell ahead of time . . . ). Some are good through the end of December, some for more limited times, and one is one-of-a-kind and it’s “first come, first served.”

How to find out about them? Each day’s offer will be posted on Facebook at 6AM Central Time (Chicago time), so one way is to “Like” TBG’s Facebook page and then check every morning.

If you want to make sure not to miss any, a better way is to sign up for my newsletter (if you don’t already get it) – you’ll get each day’s offering in a short email – also coming out at 6 AM CST – along with links to previous offers.

Also, this is the first time I’ve done this and the first time many of the companies have done a promotion like this. I apologize in advance if there are any glitches – just let me know with a note in the comments and we’ll try to get things fixed as quickly as possible.


The Boat Galley Cookbook is the one essential galley reference for any boat.

Over 800 recipes with tips on food storage and ways to make cooking on a boat easier.

I can’t match the prices or free shipping offers of Amazon and other big retailers, but I’m offering 10% off on signed copies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are tentatively scheduled to finally launch our boat the day this offer goes live. I will ship books as I can from stops, but it may take a couple days from when you order for it to get in the mail; shipping takes 2 to 4 days to most of the US (Hawaii, Alaska and remote locations take longer).

If delivery date is critical or you need international shipping, please purchase a non-signed copy from one of these retailers.

Offer:  10% OFF, can be shipped in the US

Coupon code: 12days

Expiration date: December 31, 2014

Do You Find The Boat Galley Useful?

You can support the site when you buy from Amazon by using the links on this site and the search bar below. No extra cost to you!


  1. Distant Shores is also offering a FREE “E-Guide to Provisioning for Cruising” with purchase of a Distant Shores Super Pack or Caribbean/Bahamas Gift Pack — TODAY ONLY as a Black Friday special.

  2. If you went to their web page and didn’t find much info, it’s because “something” happened. Try again with this link: http://beagleknot.net/

  3. I think you convinced me to order finally!

  4. They are cool looking bags.

  5. Thanks, needed a small purse for the boat for when we do the Great Loop! Now I have it!

  6. Thanks for the shout-out, The Boat Galley! 🙂

  7. Just placed my order for 2 large duffle bags. One for me and one for my sailor man! Have always wanted one, but they are pricey. With 15% off, I splurged! Thank you !!

  8. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Is there a product to catch drips on overhead hatches?

    • I haven’t seen one — I’d love one! If there’s enough demand, Seaworthy might just try to engineer one (not speaking for them, I just know they like coming up with innovative solutions)

  10. Geoff & Jenni McClure says:

    Carolyn you have just made our Christmas! I just ordered that Mantis anchor we’ve been wanting and the savings covered both the shipping and my wife will be thrilled with the new dinghy anchor as a stocking stuffer!

  11. cute idea, but I’m pretty sure if I had one of these it wouldn’t take long for it to be hijacked for some other use, lol

  12. The offer for the free book “Own Less and Live More” isn’t totally free. You have to enroll in Kindle Unlimited for $9.99 a month. They do offer a 30 day free trial but you would have to remember to cancel it after that. I’m just not a fan of these offers.
