Nautical / Marine Items in da House!!!

I made a deal with the missus that I can get a newer boat in 2014 provided that I decorated some rooms within our chateaux and as the weather is crap I have been doing this over xmas holidays. Now the rooms are decorated we have had to go round the usual shops (next home, m & s home, etc) and was surprised of the number of nautical / marine items that are now home fashion for example porthole mirrors, model lighthouses for bathrooms, knotted rope balls (don't know marine name and usage) as door stops etc, etc.

So I was wondering what recycled / refurbished, nautical / marine items have ribnobbers got as essential decor in da house?

Errr <cough> I had the entire guts of the Ballistic in my living room for over a year.

I wouldn't recommend it but there is a certain je ne sais quois about having structurescan next to the PC.
