What Does a Cruiser Want for Christmas?

Itís getting close to Christmas. What do you buy a cruiser? What do you want? Men? Ladies?

Ideas could be organised into...

No monetary cost
$50 and under
$50- $100
$100-$500
$500+?

I'll pass on the men, but I'll take some Ladies wearing a red bow under the tree.

Give your spouse a guide book to the place you want to cruise next season!

No, I'm not trying to push my guide. Do not visit my blog.

I always wish my wife and daughter would give more input as to where SHE would like to go. With a happy crew, everything else is manageable. They always leave the planning to me, so I never know if it was truly my interest or everyone's.

I think it's easy to get something, the cruiser doesn't really need or desire, and boats often don't have room for unnecessary presents. A gift certificate to a major marine store is a safe bet. If they drink, it's hard to go wrong with some of their favorite booze or a specialty food they might not splurge for themselves.

In the 500+ category, there's a catamaran I'd really like....

New set of sails, Facnor for kites, a Windvane, AIS, Gore-Tex foullies.

I am afraid all go into the top tier.

But one of those fine miner's kerosene lamps would be nice, if I have to economize ;-))))

Clear title to my boat, and I'll take care of the rest.

Honestly, thats the biggest worry on my mind right now. Loosing my job and then the boat. I don't give a tinkers about the house but the boat is something else.
