Default Don't forget your "croakies"

If you don't want to loose your glasses or sunglasses on board, "croakies" are a must. You can them in just about any color or they come in fun prints.

Dearest Cap'n - "Croakies" are those cloth things that you attach to the end of the bow on your glasses and put around your neck so that you don't loose your glasses overboard. Maybe they are called different things in different parts of the country.

Cap'n

Croakies is a brand name, but you can find the same type of thing for your glasses anywhere. "Croakies" is like saying "Kleenex" even when not talking about the actual brand.
