All I want for Christmas...

Tell us about your new Christmas gift that you'll be enjoying on your boat this new year. If I was found to be nice, I'll post later when the ladies of the family finally wake up and we open our gifts from St. Nick.

Merry Christmas to all TFers! Ho-Ho-Ho!!

My wife and I gave each other new seats for the fly bridge. A couple of years ago we gave each other survival suits.

She knows not what she has done

(Actually she does, and it's the gift that will keep on giving for years, and years, and years, and years... )

Bought my boat another boat for Christmas!
Quicksilver 270 airdeck. My last inflatable years ago was a Mercury and it gave us years of good service gunkholing around the Chesapeake..... Now just need some warmer weather, some Weaver Snap Davits, and a little time to get my 20 yr old 2hp Honda running again!!

I got some pee pads for the boat. Think they are for the dog, but could come in handy for single-handed runs when I can't run to the head.

😳

We don't celebrate Christmas at home until Sunday. We, however, had the greatest possible Christmas last night and this morning. This is our 14th year in celebrating Christmas at an orphanage in NC. The kids are beyond awesome. So many former residents come back for the holidays as well. The sense of family and community is overwhelming. We feel so blessed to just know them and get the chance to experience and share. These are such special kids who have reasons to be angry but instead are so joyful. So supportive of each other. So filled with love to share. We give to them but they give far more to us. People are surprised we didn't choose to have kids. Well, we did. We have 70 or so in the time we've been involved. Over 40 there at any time. We make family and friends wait to celebrate as we can't imagine Christmas Eve or Christmas morning anywhere else but with these incredible kids and the lovely people who assist them along their way, relieve the pain they bring in with them, and support them and love them as they grow.

Oh Blueyonder, you got the wrong anchor! (Just kidding). I didn't get any boat stuff but my boat got a new isolation transformer last night and this morning.

I received a wireless weather station.

My (our) greatest gift was to have all our children with us for Christmas. We rented a house for the week, and we had the kids and their spouses/significant others stay with us. Lots of laughter, love, and fun.

Priceless.

Been a pretty good boy this year:

-Shaft alignment
-Tank cleaning
-New through-hulls and seacocks
-Garmin 7612xvs MFD (for lower helm), radome and downvu transducer
-Vesper AIS
-2 icom VHFs
-new flybridge canvas and plastic

Could not get all of this under the tree, but Santa's word on it is good enough for me.

Quicksilver are good inflatables. That's an 11', two bench seat, 1998 inflatable bottom model on forward cabin in avatar. Had an 8 hp Nissan at stern on sun deck. All moving was done by arm-strong. Sold her years ago soon after picking up a really comfortable 4 seater, fully canopied Crestliner "Stinger" 14'8" tow behind runabout with 50 hp Johnson.

This year we got two great folding seats, each with integral overhead canopy... for sundeck use. And, a really nice safety/medical/accident portable locker in zippered/Velcro fabric case that can be taken back and forth between our Tolly and the runabout.

Enjoy your Quicksilver!
