Cruising and Cuisine

If your boat is big enough, you'll want kitchenware for meals onboard. If you don't want to bring an extra set of dishes from home, or opt for plastic, the Blue Nautical Flatware sells four five-piece place settings for $50. A sturdy 16-piece set of Ocean Breeze Dinnerware with non-skid bottoms costs about $85. You can buy a set of break-free wine glasses for $30 at the Wine Enthusiast, and a set of six foam Ring Buoy Coasters that fit cocktail glasses ($20 from Boat Owner's Warehouse).
