Jewelry is very popular, especially if you use shells or beach glass. Many cruisers sell it. Painting is another popular thing, watercolours mostly.

How 'bout macrame, you can work on knot tying skills at the same time.

varnishing teak, painting non-skid, molding shaping & sanding fiberglass, sewing canvas, sewing sails, etc. Plenty of crafts to keep her busy aboard.

The above usually keeps me quite busy. Perhaps you could get her a copy of "This Old Boat" for a present....

Photography is another good one.

Owning a boat you like and taking care of it like it is made of gold is the hobby
