One of my long-lasting memories of bareboat chartering has become a ritual when in the perfect anchorage. My family enjoys catamaran sailing so we typically bareboat charter a catamaran in the 40 to 48-foot range with a trampoline at the bow. If you have the right hammock you attach it under the trampoline and you hover a few inches over the water as your kids feed you snacks through the netting. Perfect vacation spot!
Every sailor needs a hammock.

A Favorite Products from ENO
Enough room for two and it engages your inner lazy person. Beware, this product will put you to sleep.
When you are not sailing you are in the cockpit and the sun can beat down on you. This tarp and its anchoring system is the best product on the market for keeping you dry or keeping you in the shade.
