Of windlasses and tiller-pins

Lucky James went to Crick boat show last Saturday (before it all blew away) and he brought me back some presents! Exciting things too! Firstly a new windlass with a rotating handle, and a highly useful Seasearcher magnet (watching James struggle to get the keeper off was quite funny- its a helluva stong magnet). Most exciting was a duck-shaped tiller pin though, just like the one the boat currently has (but that the owner will take away with him). Also he bought me a book on how to paint proper roses and castles! Yay!

This got us thinking about all the other stuff we're going to need. Helpfully we're not the only ones and Lady Muck of Canal world forums has recently posted this list of useful things
