I agree. This thread is great.

For my contribution to this thread, I suggest headlamps or caps with lighted visors as a backup to your "house" lighting. They are great for tying fish hooks or working on your boat at night. Keep one with your tools at least. They are great for automotive work also. I changed my kid's fan belts in the dark last night. (Too hot in the day)

For those of us that leave our boats at local marinas.....I've found that a locking box for tools and a cable lock to tie THAT to something helps. We had a few kids come through the marina one night and stole things from various boats....didn't matter whether they were covered or not.

In my case I lost a small drawer of cheap tools, 3 inexpensive fishing rods, tackle box and worst of all....the water-tite box we kept the TP in!! :)

You got me thinking....... I do have two boat hooks, one fore and one at the helm. But they are both telescoping so they wouldn't let me lift my dog out of the water. He does have a good "float coat" with a strong handle. Right now someone in the water or on the tube just needs to give him a little boost to get aboard.

But if he ends up in cold water by himself, I will need a shorter, stouter setup to quickly lift him out at 55 lbs. dry. I'm still new at lake boating and pontoons. Glad you posted that picture!
