Spare Parts List

Every boater needs a list. Ask Captain Chris about the Spare Parts list...which spare parts you should have aboard your boat as you travel the waterways. 

But if you're not a mechanic then why have any spare parts at all? Instead of being stranded at the dock this Spare Parts list will help make your next vacation cruise a success! When you have the correct part aboard then the tech, a marina neighbor or you can make simple repairs that keep your systems purring and your crew smiling. Use this list as a guide to build your onboard spare parts inventory. 

Download this extensive list including about 100 suggested spare parts and important tools that every cruiser needs. We consider multiple on board systems that are all owner serviceable and recommend the parts to keep your systems running. After you order your list you can print out a paper copy or download it to your mobile device for reference any time you need it. Just Ask Captain Chris and be prepared for your next cruising adventure!
