Okay, so it's only October and we shouldn't be talking about it yet; but any great ideas for Christmas presents this year for sailing enthusiasts?

I'll be needing a new anchor rode as my last one got used on some cat named Halcyon1 when he brought up Christmas before we even made it to ice out on the water.....LOL

honestly could use new main and jib sheets....have to let her know where to order those.

A new reaching symmetrical spin (star)
Rigid Vang
Hell since we're just dreaming, a pair of number 40 ST winches.
New standing rigging
New running rigging...
a 4 stroke 4hp outboard.

Since I am on the naughty list, I'll get nothing but coal... so move on!

Funny my daughter just said to me this evening, only 10 more Saturdays until Christmas. Not that far off when you think of it that way.

Shhhh, not so loud, I've been deliberately bad for years, in a few more I'll be able heat my house.

I would like a elf or two to unstep my mast, re-varnish it and step it again all in one night.

New foulies! My Gill jacket and ProRainer pants have served me well for many years, but they are starting to let me down. Since my buddies are talking me into doing some winter racing I need to gear up!

Shnool, when you're as bad as me, you realize that coal isn't so bad. You just need to get a coal-powered heater, or a steam-powered outboard. Then you're golden.
True with the value of coal, I'll have enough to buy this stuff soon!

I used to have a friend with a pile of coal from an old furnace .. we always choose someone to get coal in their stocking .. some years it was funny some years we choose poorly and the recipient didnt get the joke.
