Just like your beer cooler is off limits to diet soda, your cigar compartment is off limits to any chick stuff.
Great, now what do you want to keep on your boat? For starters, you’ll a good cigar cutter. Sure you can use a knife in a pinch, but why risk it? A proper cigar cutter will ensure that you get a smooth draw. You might think you don’t need to worry because you carry your cigar cutter in your pocket. Like you’ve never forgot to check your pockets when you changed pants. Seriously, better safe than sorry.

Basically, make an informed decision, not based on price alone.
