If we don't use it, we won't sell it! We test and use each Pacific NW Boater TESTED Product on our own boat, a 1979 Cheoy Lee 46 LRC, or a friend's boat. We're not professional captains being paid to endorse a product. We're a liveaboard/workaboard cruising family boating in the incomparably beautiful Pacific NW, using our boat 24/7, 365 days a year. You can trust our Pacific NW Boater TESTED Products are being used in the marine environment they were designed for. Now you can buy with confidence!

More products and videos are coming! If you have a product you'd like us to test, just drop us an email. We'll use it. If we like it, we'll make a video and sell it right here on our store.
