I got a gift card from a non-sailor friend for $100 at West Marine and I'm kind of struggling as to what to purchase with it.
Sure I could purchase line, but my boat is only a year old and I'm not having any chafe issues.
I made my own trailer box (out of wood) and I'd love to get a real fiberglass one, but $100 doesn't really get there, and I don't think West Marine would have something like that in any case.
At any rate, I'm not sure what to do with the gift and would love to hear some ideas.
I have gotten where I prefer the long sleeve "fishing" shirts with air vents for sailing. There is typically a clearance rack you can grab some decent deals.. If you go for water shoes, make sure they tie on. I have gone to Converse shoes... they tie on and actually have better deck grip on most decks (keelboats). I had lost a shoe from being sucked off my foot while on the wire. Gloves are also a good idea.. They also sell the Multihull magazine which can be a good read. Or, get a good knife.. Should always have a knife on you... When you browse around.. there is quite a bit of things you can drop $100 on...
