Valentine's Day -- Sailors Gifts -- Suggestions Please

Okay ..... I am out of ideas. Any suggestions for a good gift for a sailor for Valentine's day?

Who: My husband (but, sure to help others too)
Age: Over 50, sailing since age 7-8
We sail a monohull, considering a CAT -- but to buy a CAT book, might seem a little self-serving, because I might want the CAT most of all. LOL

Price Range: $50-$200

He loves sailing and tools. Enjoys reading, but has most of the books and magazine subscriptions. I bought him a really nice sailing watch last year.

[I'm glad to return the favor if you need ideas for your sailing wife or girlfriend. ]

Thanks All!
Darby

Interesting. In our marina, we have been having a SERIOUS problem with crows. They leave a horrible mess on the boat. I am eager to check this out.

Thanks

Bob and Connie:

I gave Falco a SOG nautical knife with a marlin pin. They offer engraving service, so I had the blade engraved.

He LOVES it!

Thank you for the suggestion!
