There’s no better or more fulfilling way to beat the heat of summer and fall than a day on the lake aboard your boat! With so many maritime opportunities right in Kenosha’s back yard, there is no shortage of fun to be had on the water. However, without the proper preparation, your day can quickly be foiled by the elements. Make sure you bring along all of these essentials before embarking on your next boating trip!
Your Favorite Summer Snacks
A day on the lake means you’ll be underneath the sun for hours. This kind of prolonged exposure without adequate nutrition can be detrimental to your health so it is crucial to pack your favorite snacks! Given the conditions on the water, you’ll also want to make sure that they can stand up to the heat without melting or being otherwise ruined, like granola bars, fruit, and snack packs!
No Such Thing as Too Many Towels
No one will ever tell you that a day of fun on the lake won’t come at the cost of getting covered in water or sand. That’s why we say that it’s impossible to bring too many towels! This way, everyone can dry off after a dip in the water or clean themselves off after walking across the beach. Plus, you can lay on towels to separate yourself from sand, bugs, and other undesirables.
Plenty of Sunscreen
The worst thing to put up with after a long day on the boat is sunburn. This is especially hazardous if you or your boating companions are spending a lot of time in the water, which can wash away that precious sunscreen. Pack plenty of sunscreen – we recommend a waterproof kind that offers strong enough SPF to protect you from the sun’s rays!
Drinking plenty of water is a crucial part of staying healthy during a full day of boating. For some, it may be easy to get distracted from staying hydrated by all the recreational fun, but it is important nonetheless. Consider bringing a cooler full of water bottles and ice or an insulated water bottle to make sure that everyone has cool drinking water all day. The sun is especially punishing when we are dehydrated.
Toys and Games
Just because your luxury boat from Great Lakes Yacht Sales is already so much fun doesn’t mean that you still can’t make your day even more exciting! Bring some classic aquatic toys, like noodles and water guns, for a little extra fun on the water. Besides toys, you can even try bringing along some of your favorite outdoor games, like beach darts!
After your time on the water is up, don’t forget a change of clothes so that you can make it back home in comfort. With all these essentials in tow, you will be able to have the best day ever next time you hit the lake aboard your boat from the best Kenosha marina – Great Lakes Yacht Sales!
