Dry Water Blade $25, 800/252-1986, www.swobbit.com If you want to use the excuse that you can't find the time to clean your boat, then don't get the Water Blade-it makes cleaning easy. Its gel handle increases the flexibility of the silicone blade, so it works well on curved and contoured surfaces. The medical-grade silicone blade features a T-Bar edge that whisks away water. Swobbit claims that its Water Blades dry in a third of the time of chamois or ordinary squeegees and are safe for all finishes. With no metal parts, it won't scratch or damage surrounding areas.
