Xmas Present for the Boat.

My Xmas present to myself for my boat is going to be a new bimini.
What boys toy or girls gear are you getting for yours?

Hey! What are you folks doing opening up your presents early?

We had a gale today and, even though we're at the dock, a gust hit us so hard it knocked the Christmas tree over. Hoping none of the presents were damaged, SINCE THEY'RE STILL UNWRAPPED UNDER THE TREE. (Ahem)

Christmas tree now fastened upright with duct tape. Wish Santa had thought of that sooner.

Re: Xmas Present for the Boat.

My boat has been given a new rigg chainplates to mast mizzen and main finished yesterday WoW it was pretty pricy cant imagine what it will cost when I next do it !!!!! This is a major cost to people buying S/H boat as most times if not documented the boat will need a new rigg. Insurance companies are getting a bit tough on this now.

Merry Christmas to all those sailors out there that "sail" their boats

Cheers Jacko
