Hmm, a sport-a-seat or two, handheld VHF
, a nice deck
brush, nesting cookware, isolation transformer, a gift cert for a yard for a project
(labor/parts etc), Frohli sleep system, lock and lock storage
, life jacket maintenance
kit (inflatable), replace items that are long in the tooth but further down the list of priorities, an emergency
kit of spare engine parts
, a case of oil
, updated charts
either paper or plotter.
My first choice if they don't own some sort of e-reader or tablet like an iPad
would be one of those. I'd go with a Nook because they support library books
(ePub). ($75-275) I can check out and download books from my library from anywhere and they can be returned or just expire after X days.
$500-700) serves as a Nook, Kindle, course planning, could be a plotter in a pinch, email
, web, games when stuck waiting weather
, has a library of manuals
, and so on.
My thoughts in no particular order that cover prices from $50-800. :-)
