Re: s/v S/V question ?
And here I always thought it was SUV. Silly me. If your friend hasn't stipulated what he or she actually wants, you may both be in for an embarrassment. People with boats can be very picky (a place for everything and everything in its place!!! ). If your friend doesn't already have this thing, maybe there's a reason. It might be best to find out first. Maybe it's because they would absolutely never have such a thing on board (I feel that way about music systems on a boat). Or perhaps it's because they are still saving up for one - (so it might be very much appreciated - like a portable VHF, for example.) Ask first, and no one will be disappointed.
