Default Appropriate gift for friend you talked into buying first boat?

What an appropriate gift for friend you talked into buying his first boat?
Beer / Wine / Bottle Champagne??? (I'm not gay)

Just a friendly congratulations?

Offer to take him around as much as possible to "show him the ropes"?

Anyone have any sugestions?

Is their phone number listed right on those?

You guys are a riot

He held out for a really nice runabout, 192 Rinker so nothing over the edge... I just sure hope it treats him as well as I know hes going to treat it!
Just left his house and he's already washed it and now working on waxing it as the kids and I were leaving.

I think we'll be on the lake tomorrow and I may have talked him into his first Mississippi trip for next weekend in LaCrosse
