Daily Lift - Adaptive Sailing

Basic starter kit for physically disabled sailing and boat adaptations - Simple additions for any boat could include a camping or yoga mat, some short lengths of rope, a smooth wood plank, possibly a cooler or recycling bin and a roll of duct tape. With these items, one can create:

-A padded, non-slip seat
-Padding around sharp objects in the cockpit
-An additional thwart to assist transfer from side to side during maneuvers
-Extra loops of rope to grip and provide stability in the boat
-Extensions to sheets
