To help spread the Out2Sea brand name and provide mariners with the best gear, we have launched an online store connected to our website. This is just the latest addition in our goal to become the one-stop-shop for everything Merchant Marine!
We’re calling our online store “The Slop Chest” because mariners can find all kinds of clothing here, from custom Out2Sea t-shirts, to ironclad utility gloves and work boots. Slop chest, of course, is an old term used to refer to a store of clothing on a merchant ship. Sailors could get almost any type of clothing they needed from the slop chest for a given sum of money, which was usually charged against their pay.
In the course of your work as a merchant mariner, you probably go through gear very quickly. That’s why a well-stocked slop chest was always needed on merchant ships – and that’s what we’re hoping to give you in our online store.
To access Out2Sea’s slop chest, simply go to our home page, Out2Sea.com, and visit the menu bar at the top of the page. Then, click on the shopping cart icon.
What we’re offering in our online store
Once you’re in the slop chest, you’ll have the option to click through to our Shop page. You can also scroll down and check out our affiliate gear. We’ve included previews of featured products down at the bottom of the page, and these products are all available in our Shop.
The Out2Sea Shop is where you’ll find all your custom Out2Sea gear. Right now, we’ve got several great t-shirt designs on sale. Each design comes in a few different colors, and you can choose between black, grey, red, blue or orange.
Other t-shirts in our online store feature a few different variations on our logo, as well as an anchor and mooring design.
