Arrow Gear confessional: what was the last piece of gear you bought

Welcome to the gear confessional. It's part to drool over other people's most recent purchases and for people to drool over yours....err, I mean help each other get over the addiction

Just today I ordered a Wichard tether!

Coming up next, portable bow/stern lights for the boats at my club w/out an electrical system (any advice welcome) and a new winch handle!

I sail.

Are inspection hatches gear?
I just got 5. My little boat has a suprising number of places you can't really get at.

I'll let you know when I get to buy my last piece of gear. So for now my recent purchases are 19" LCD TV, Car Stereo with DVD player, speakers, RG8x cable, Antenna, VSWR Meter (don't laugh, one of you guys gave me this idea), AM/FM-VHF Switch, Mainsail, Sail cover and Folding Wheel. Next pruchase is GPSmap 76CX. So looks like I'm still a long long way from buying my last gear.
