Good Gear you got for free

You bought your boat. What came with it, or you found on it, that you did not expect or was just sold with it, that you did not expect? This would definitely be things in the category of, "I don't think I'd have wanted to part with that", or "I'd have taken that off it".

I did find a 10 or 12 pound mushroom anchor on the boat the other day. What do you do with a mushroom anchor on a sailboat ?

Lancer28 is on a distinguished road
Boxes and boxes of spray cans, rags, brushes, dried paint cans, a hand drill, potato chips, Taylor made fender from the beginning of time, miles of extra line, thousands of screws, nuts, bolts, rigging pieces, 12 blocks, a bird nest, and rebuild kits for everything on the boat... I filled my pickup truck bed. Most of it (99.8%) hasn't been back on board.

Glass coffee mugs and real crockery - why anyone would use glass and china on a small boat is beyond me!

Needless to say all of it went straight to the op-shop and speedily was replaced with melamine...

Enough rust on the swing keel to keep it from lowering!

I guess it's the spinnaker and whisker pole (even though I've yet to try using it)

A sextant (very cool - the wife is now learning how to use it)... brand new fortress anchor... tons of extra parts (each time after we had already bought a replacement)... electric oil change pump already installed... and of course all of the obligatory extra paint, gelcoat, glues and other dried up parts that we tossed...

A huggee can cooler from Little Cayman. Hood SeaFurl 5, a bilge retrieval tool made from two pacemaker-deactivation magnets on a string (PO was a cardio-thoracic surgeon), and a custom fuel tank gauge made from a long stick with pencil marks. :-D

Cuban,
They're for the deactivation of the pacemaker not the pulsemaker. The confusion between the two could result in your denying yourself one of Paul's last tangible assests.
