Good bungee cords are handy for a variety of duties aboard any boat.
The trouble is they don’t last. The Perfect Bungee is designed to withstand exposure to salt water, oil and ozone without cracking, scuffing, breaking, splitting or becoming brittle. Backed by a lifetime guarantee and made of polyurethane, the bungees stretch as much as twice their original length. They come in a variety of sizes and colors and retail for $4.72 (fixed-end cord) and $4.78 (loop-end cord). Just Ducky Products,
