Each year, as the fall boat showsand the deals that come with themappear on the horizon, we pore over the numerous products weve reviewed in the previous 12 months to select the cream of the crop for our Editors Choice awards. We hope the list will help readers better navigate any boat-show or end-of-season shopping. This year, we picked from the Best Choice products evaluated in the September 2010 through August 2011 issues. The 2011 GOTY roster includes an electric outboard, some stout bullet blocks, electric marine toilets, bilge pumps, chafe gear, and marine maintenance products like bottom paint.
