The best sailing Christmas gift this year.

Need to get a gift for that sailor who has everything?
Are you, like most of us, a cheap sailor?
Are you a hardwater sailor looking to find a way to fill the time until your boat goes back in the water?
Are you somebody who likes a good story well told?
Do you like pretty pictures and dislike mobos?
Bottom line, have you got 5 friggin' dollars, you cheap bastids?

Subscribe to Keep Turning Left. yeah, the host is a chit disturber who cooks dangerously, but his adventures are entertaining as all hell and prettier than his boat. Hell, you can't even rent "Waterworld" for a fiver, and this is a HELL of a lot more entertaining.
Five. Damn. Dollars. Cheaper than a 6-pack of Shlitz and won't make you piss all night. Now that right there is a quality review.

GO the Four Knot Snot Box.

and I'll second that thought .. nothing on the net has given me more enjoyment than Dylan's vids in the last year or so.

(Especially since the new virus program cut of all the porn sites and the small but perfectly formed SailHog disappeared from our screens.)

I initially read that as "best-sailing christmas gift", and I thought someone bought you a Pogo (or insert preferred brand of performance boat here). Maybe I'll buy myself KTL though.

One of my favorite moments (aside from him pointing out a couple of old slags on a porch as potential pirate-era-prostitutes as he sails by) was when he was on his boat in freakin' cold weather and pointing out how you could hear the ice sliding past the hull.

The dude's got moxie.
