always invited me out to shred with him?

So I just started wakeboarding a couple years ago and was fortunate to become friends with this really awesome guy that always invited me out on his kick ass boat. It's a 2005 X-Star and was wondering if you guys had any insight on some cool gift/ideas that would show my appreciation. And yeah, I always chip in for gas so don't just say money Thanks WW!

Either boat cleaning supplies or if you can think of something that maybe you needed throughout the summer that he didn't have or was getting worn out. Possibly a new rope or handle, maybe some new fenders or buoy balls.

How much are you looking to spend on this gift? Assuming $40 to $50 is your range, I would be stoked if somone gave me a gallon of Hot Sauce.

^^ What he said. Anything in his boat that you think could be upgraded or replaced. Additional life jackets, wetsuits, wakemakers gift card, cleaning supplies etc.

or you could pay to have his boat detailed, or you can detail the boat for him.

Check his fire extinguisher and see if its still good. If its bad replace it for him. They're always over looked until they get pulled over. I always did a babes boat care kit for my Buddys. Another good idea is a gallon of 303 interior sealer/ protectant, that stuff is money! Actually come to think of it i need to buy some...

Boat cleaner is nice and all, but I keep myself pretty well stocked. If someone gave me cleaner i'd just toss it in the closet with the other dozens of bottles.. What I would love would be for someone with a power buffer or the know how to show up and take out 3-5 of the small scuffs in my gelcoat that elbow grease and wax can't get rid of. That would be an awesome gift. The scuffs are too small to justify hauling the boat to a dealer to fix, but they irk me every time I wipe down the boat.

another idea is a tower mount + rider down flag.

go to a mastercraft dealership and get him 2 of the little window mastercraft shield decals, something small and they might even give them to you for free. a gallon of babes/hot sauce/303 is also a good idea. if he's normally stocked with them you could also get him a mastercraft towel. I had another owner give me one, i use the thing alllll the time

Sorry, decals would not do much for me at least.

Cleaning products, good beer/wine, pay for a full boat detail (can be like 500$+, not sure how much you love your buddy), upgrade mirror/HU, does he need stereo gear/stuff?, pay to have any damaged vinyl re-done, get him some MC gear, a price range would help.

As a boat owner I would say there's a reason you keep getting invited. You must offer something that is valuable or you wouldn't be getting invited. You're probably a good person who is conscientious already and you don't need to do much. At this point you are probably better off doing something that contributes in a way that saves him time with maintenance. Be someone he can count on when it comes time to clean and wax etc. My .02
