Boat Dishes Needed

We have a new sailboat but need good quality melamine plates and marine cutlery. We enjoy entertaining on board and would like a set for at least 8. Unfortunately the current stock available at West Marine etc are not as attractive as I would like. Any suggestions?

  1. We use Corelle dishes. While you can get the marine style plates, etc with the anti slip stuff on the bottom, they are still plastic plates. At least Corelle is somewhat china-like but can still survive a good knocking around in your storage area.

    If you are determined to go with the marine style dinnerwear, you might be better to wait until the spring when the boating stores get new stock. I've always seen fairly nice stuff in the store at Port Credit.
