    What are you hoping Santa will bring you (of a nautical nature)?
    I’m shamelessly looking for ideas here. :)

    I heard a rumor from Santa that he was bringing my wife a set of blue tooth headphone/intercoms so she won't have to listen to her husband screaming from the foredeck when anchoring or during difficult docking maneuvers.

    He's also bringing her some chocolate from Puna Chocolate. http://www.punachocolate.com

    An EPIRB. MOB1 personal. Maybe a satellite phone like InReach would be nice.

    New smart bilge pump switch. My float switch doesn't seem to be reliable, and because of its footprint it is mounted in a separate albeit it connected bilge compartment

    Fair weather April to October in NE. Drought would be good.

    A Beneteau or Hunter about 38 feet. Well, Santa, brand not really critical - just well equipped, not too old, good shape.
