Not a nautical themed pashmina afghan, please.

I'm looking for a gift for someone who just bought an ancient 35-foot yacht that she intends to spend the next couple of years renovating, and then live in. I want it to be kind of a house-warming gift, but, y'know, for a boat.

I know nothing about boats. If you do, I'd love any suggestions for something that will be useful, but also fun or otherwise something she wouldn't think to get for herself. The money for the renovations isn't a problem for her, so I don't need a gift that contributes to those, necessarily.
She likes quirky things, even tending towards the kitschy. She does a lot of fishing. She's not planning on making big trips overseas; just sailing around the harbour and bays in Auckland.
The gift needs to be something that is either easily able to be posted internationally, or available to buy online from somewhere in Auckland or with reasonable shipping fees to Auckland.
I'm thinking of spending $100 max, including delivery costs.
