5 gallon bucket

5 gallon bucket

There are many reasons that one should have a 5 gallon bucket on a boat.  It has so many uses already recognized, and I am sure that as time goes on we find more and more reasons for the bucket with a painter. 

It amazes me when people ask why a bucket on a boat.  It warranted that I put this post together so that I can share the concept of why the bucket is so important on a vessel.

  Here are just a few of the reasons ….

  1. Bailing
  2. sea sickness catch basin
  3. ice and beer
  4. storage, even liquids when used with the sealing lid
  5. tools and equipment, like when going up the mast
  6. step stool
  7. backup head
  8. swabbing the deck
  9. can be used in the water, to slow a boat or to keep a boat on anchor in current
  10. place to put my coastguardcaptain.com stickers
  11. place to put caught fish and crab
  12. garbage can
  13. washing machine for clothes on board
  14. washing dishes out on deck
  15. dipping in the water for a quick wash down on deck
  16. emergency steering, when used with spinnaker pole and couple lines

More will be added as time goes on …..
