Easy Boat Improvements

Simple projects to make major improvements on your boat.

Maybe not “forever” solutions but quick (and generally inexpensive) ways to get an 80% improvement and make your time aboard more enjoyable.

  • A quick and easy way to make a big improvement if your windows are clouded. No, it's not perfect . . . but it isn't a major project either.

Big windows in a boat are wonderful for providing views but can really heat up the inside. Regular shades work most of the year, but better window shades can lower interior temps by 10°. Just 5 minutes and less than $20!
