Indulgences on board?

Seems like a natural companion thread to "must-haves on board."

So. What do you have that really isn't necessary, but ups your standard of living on the boat?

Here's an example: A friend is changing the (perfectly serviceable) upholstery of the boat they bought a year ago. It's not her style and not her color, though. Part of making it "their" home instead of "a" home.

I'm having trouble thinking of my own indulgences, we've been so busy spending time/money/energy on necessities getting our boat ready for cruising - new sails, solar panels, standing rigging, etc. But I will ...

I am having a full battened main built this year. The admiral may want airconditioning this year as this summer we are sailing to Chicago and it will be warm there (for her). As for the Ol' Irwin, every thing has been provided for. Just need April. I did buy a new VHF.

A motor for the dink. A generator so I can use more juice than I need to. 3 kinds of tea I really like instead of something cheaper.

Why are you "Guys" in "Her Sailnet". For some reason I don't think that is what Eryka had in mind. It reminds me of the time that Sailingdog was giving advise to the ladies about "Feminine Issues."
