What to gift someone who will be living on a boat indefinitely?

Postby MarkTaylor » Tue Nov 26, 2019 1:38 am

Hi all! I would like to preface this by saying I sadly know very little about boats. However, my good friend is a few months out from living full-time on a boat with her partner.

As the holiday season is coming up, I’m a bit frozen about what kind of gift could be helpful.

I know their cabin space is incredibly limited, so I think the normal things I’d imagine getting her/them are out (books, houseware, trinkets). I think it would be so fun to get them a gift that acknowledges their soon-to-be boat life. Is there anything super cool that could be useful to have? Maybe it’s not a physical thing, even.

They will be traveling along the east coast of the United States, occasionally stopping in certain areas for work.

Hopefully this is allowed. I am so excited for them, and would love to show it. I’m looking to you, the boating experts, for advice!

Get a PLB, about $300.
