Re: CROC FOR LIVEABOARD

I wear my Vibram 5 Fingers all the time on the boat! I love them! Fantastic traction and feels like I'm still barefoot when I need a little warmth and padding.

I read info on this shoe and it says they are not waterproof. Is there a boating shoe?

No, mine aren't water proof, but even racing in them, they rarely get wet. When they do, it's no different than when I use my Gill Neoprene boots.

Re: CROC FOR LIVEABOARD

Pink crocs. It's a well-kept secret, but the only non-slip crocs are the pink ones. Make sure you get the pinkest ones you can find!

Thanks. I found these CROCS made for boating for $16.00 in my size and bought them. I think they will be great for the shower at the marina too. I couldn't find "PINK" just this Khaki color, DARN.

Re: CROC FOR LIVEABOARD

Those shoes are a very effective form of birth control.

Re: CROC FOR LIVEABOARD

I have worn through several pairs of Crocs. My present pair are white and getting bald. When aboard and if the weather is warm enough I go barefoot but to go into town for supplies I wear the Crocs. I am not too concerned about footwear fashion statements.

Re: CROC FOR LIVEABOARD

SW- when I read your title it was just below your "Parrots" thread. I thought there's an inventive woman- can't get the parrot off the boat so bringing on a croc to handle the parrot problem....

Re: Croc for Liveaboard

I think Crocs make great dinghy shoes. The water drains out, the sand rinses right off, and they dry fast.

I have a set of deck shoes that are ONLY worn on board. That keeps the soles clean and traction high. For on and off the boat on a daily basis at the dock I'll wear nearly anything non-marking.

I'm on my second pair of pink Crocs. I can kick them off anywhere and no one will steal them.

Re: Croc for Liveaboard

Keen waterproof sandals are pretty surefooted and they protect tour toes.

Re: Croc for Liveaboard

Check the size of the holes versus your little toe. It may be an urban myth but I read there have been some ugly accidents with toes peeking out and getting stuck Out There.
