Default Good/Great additions to your boat that improve your fishing experience

I'll start: (no, these are not paid advertisements)
1) Drotto latch
2) Ezee Steps
3) Plastic cup holder, tackle tray combos bought at walmart, academy, wherever. Mounted on an Extreme Maxx for my Lund Sport Track in 4 locations on boat. Pair of cheap grade school safety scissors and needle nose in each holder. Always have pliers and scissors, regardless of where we are in the boat.
4) The cheap plastic 3 rod holders screwed to the side of my port side compartment. Have 3 and could fit 4 if I wanted. Great rod storage for running between spots.
5) Fishing specialties downrods for my bow mount lowrance and garmin transducers. No electrical interference from TM with signal and can point transducer in any direction we want without messing with a trolling motor direction.
6) Good box anchor. Just added 2 months ago. Where has that been all my life. Wonderful anchors for our mud and clay bottoms.
7) Tying a large float on the handles of all my fish grabbers for when I repeatedly drop them in the water.
8) pee bucket, since I'm old and fall out of the boat on occasion
9) Good electronics w/ down and side scan and learning to hunt fish, instead of fishing
10) Learning that two drift socks on the back of the boat, drifting forward gives soooo much better drift control than two off the sides drifting sideways

1-TR1 Gold kicker autopilot with throttle control. Not made now. Garmin now has the reactor kicker control
2- spot look trolling motor.
3- panther waterspike anchor it stows away in a compartment so easy. This is related to spot lock. As I do not use an anchor very much. So nice to keep it in storage.
4- vertical rod trees for trolling. Keeps rods out of the way.
5- my bow rod locker with floor locker that fits most of my trolling and jigging rods.
6- my depth raider speed and temp for downrigger. Salmon fishing it helps allot. I would buy the new fish hawk now.
7- track system for taking stuff on and off the boat.
8- kicker motor slow trolling, sipping gas, plus backup safety.

Hands down a Garmin TR1-Gold

It lets me run a 10 rod spread in the gnarliest of conditions without a single tangle or lifting a finger. I can focus on fishing and not boat control. It does things no human or bow mount can do.
