Did Santa Give you Boat Stuff?

So what did Santa give you?


Years ago Mum got an anchor from Santa....


Did you get something good?

Santa has been very good to us. May your rigging always be merry and bright!

Re: Did Santa give you boat stuff?

Pretty sure the pointy thingy is a Rocna 55.

Probably also several dive lights, rechargable C batteries, charger, 37A float switches, 12 VDC entertainment system, and many others. HOWEVER, captian is not stupid. The admiral also gets some warm girly things and a nice bottle of single malt.

Wahoo!

Mind you, you'd think the fat old prick may have got one of the elves to put it up! (the one with big Rudolphs)



Nicholson58: when do you get to open yours? Is it like a test of courage to hang out all day?

Would you trust an elf with your chainplates?

Re: Did Santa give you boat stuff?

Santa was supposed to bring new sails . . . but when the estimates came out at 30k pounds ex VAT, that turned into an entire new electronics set . . . I can handle that . . . Thanks, dear!

Re: Did Santa give you boat stuff?

Santa gave me $480 USD last night that I won in a football pool!

Real football. Like a fine vessel with a pointy end.

I gave up on Santa.

I wish I could get some rigging and a pointy thing for Christmas.
