A “lookie bucket” is virtually a cruising necessity and we only just acquired one. With this awesome tool you can both check on the set of your anchor and pick out good snorkeling spots, all without getting wet. You can either buy one for 40 bucks in the marine store (and if you do that I have a couple of bridges to sell you too) or you could just cut the bottom out of a bucket and replace it with a piece of glass or plexiglass using some marine adhesive. An easy project with only a few parts required. Thanks to Troy and Deana on s/v Storyville for putting this one together for us!
An ordinary bucket?
