Reflex Marine Seat $299; 877.234.7466, www.tempress.com

Planning on going offshore but not sure you have the stomach for it? Tempress Products’ Reflex marine chair has two levels of shock absorption that promise to ease rough waters. Twin, spring-loaded shock absorbers underneath the seat pan offer unmatched vibration control, and a suspended trampoline surface provides superior comfort. The seat also boasts lumbar support, thigh reinforcement, a padded headrest, and ventilation so you won’t stick to the seat on hot days. Seat panels can be upholstered to match your boat’s color scheme.

CookMate 4200 Alcohol Stove $380; 941.355.4488, www.contoure.com

Featuring the SafeFlame fuel canister system, this recessed double-burner alcohol stove takes the risk out of onboard cooking. The nonpressurized stainless-steel canister contains a nonflammable wick that absorbs more than a quart of safe alcohol fuel, which can be extinguished with water. The stove generates 6,800 Btus of heat per burner and a bamboo cutting board fits neatly over the stove. It measures 53⁄8″-by-105⁄16″-by-1’23⁄16″.

708-R Ring Pole Holder $65; 727.572.9202, www.acconmarine.com

Keep your pushpole secure with this stainless-steel, UV-resistant, glass-filled nylon ring holder. Mounted in the front of the boat, the holder prevents the pushpole from moving and easily folds flush when not in use. Poles sit 11⁄16″ off the deck in the holder, so a riser shim isn’t needed. An optional waterproofing cup is available.
