These are hard to beat:

Cabela's -- Portable LED Bow and Stern Navigation Lights

Make sure you get the LED lights, wherever you get them. Regular bulbs will eat batteries and really only be legal about half the time (as soon as they start to dim, they aren't visible far enough away).

winch handle

My latest purchase was an 8" winch handle. The tubes for the bimini leave and 10.1" between the winch and the tube, and my wife was always banging her hand. The 8" winch makes it easier to grind. The winches are big barient two speeds, so there is plenty of power.

Bob needs to get off his butt and buy a boat and end-up boat rich and cash poor like the rest of us.

Just bought a new set of Harken blocks (2604 and 2618 IIRC) to make up a new mainsheet setup. Ordered 100' of T-900 line for the setup too.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sadly it only took me 5 minutes using a dime that I used as a flat head screwdriver to remove the bracket with the lock still on it from my boat, then I had someone use a torch to cut the lock off the bracket and reassembled my boat.

I can only hope that a thief is either really pressed for time or doesn't have a spare dime ...
