Editor's Notes

February 11, 2019:

While the options on this list are all intended for boat use, there are several — such as the Millennium Marine B100 and the Leader Accessories Stadium Seat — that are suitable for other applications, such as at sporting events and concerts. Shoppers should be aware that, while this improves their versatility and may increase the amount of use they get out of them, they're unlikely to be as well-suited for permanent boat use as some of the other, more dedicated models shown here.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
