While at the hardware
/ feed store I found a dark green, heavy guage plastic feed bucket that is designed to hang over a fence. It is about the same size as a 5 gallon bucket, but is square shape with rounded corners. It also has a nice hand hold molded in.
I hang this over the life line or stern rail and use if for everything from catching trash while sailing to washing
the boat. It's fantastic! The color green matches my canvas
and bootstripe - and that's a plus!
I found it at an ACE hardware
My second favorite item - equally as useful - is a 2 gallon pressure sprayer (as used for yard chemicals). I purchased this at Lowe's and keep fresh water
in it and have it attached near the boarding ladder with a bungee cord.
This makes a terrific rinse off shower
when we come in from swimming. The fresh water
is a real treat. It also conserves water instead of using the pressurized water system on the boat.
