If your one decipherable radio station recycles only Top 40 tunes, then it's time to bring the sweet sound of Sirius Satellite Radio to your boat with Shakespeare's Galaxy SRA-10 satellite radio antenna. Its 5"-diameter head features a UV-resistant housing that won't turn yellow in the sun. The package includes 25' of low-loss microcable with connectors and a plastic flange mount, but the antenna can also be fitted to one of Shakespeare's other mounts or extension masts. No separate power cable is needed. Price: $195, not including Sirius subscription fees. Contact Shakespeare at 800/800-9008, www.shakespeare-ce.com.
Looking for a low-cost anchor that delivers good performance? How about a model that's two anchors in one? Then check out the SportBubble. It features a buoyancy bubble that turns the anchor upright and keeps it in this position while in the water. You can also assemble the plow in an inverted position to make it work as a beach anchor or spike. The SportBubble is available in two sizes: for boats up to 20' and boats 21' to 30'. Plus, it's made from industrial-strength steel and galvanized to resist rust. Price: $64 to $79. Contact Anchor Concepts at 888/282-2535, www.anchorconcepts.com.
Seat of Power
When battling a frisky fish, your fighting chair should make the struggle easier, not harder. With a 2'2" turn radius, the stainless-steel Model FCC-130 chair from Nautical Design does just that. Lower the radius to 1'10" to give yourself more swivel room in a tight cockpit. The knockdown feature swings the footrest completely under the chair or lets you break down the footrest to stow it in a 4"-by-1'2"-by-2" compartment. Price: $2,699. Contact Nautical Design at 724/368-9400.
