Packing for Boating

A backpack or soft bag to pack belongings is useful to use on boats where space is usually limited.

To assist children, a checklist is helpful to ensure they have the clothes they need. Following is an example of gear to include either for a day trip or a longer boating vacation.

Items to include:

Two pairs of shoes - one for the boat, one for ashore
mitts or gloves
jogging suit
warm jacket preferably with hood
short and long sleeved t-shirts
swim suit
rain jacket and pants
rain boots
pj's, toiletries, underwear - for overnight trips

Once a list for a child's gear is established, it can be used whenever a boating trip is planned.
