"Must Have" tools for wooden boat work?

Hello All,
My Father-in-Law just bought a Century Resorter. (in fact, this very boat: http://www.boatland.com/Century%2018%20Resorter.html)

Are there any special/indispensable tools that he should have? Xmas is just around the corner!

there is a lot of fitting of wooden pieces so a good block would be a nice gift

Spoke shave

I have the Lie-Nielsen's and love them as well as their block plane. Also look at Lee-Valley's.

Need two questions answered: 1. Does he have woodworking skills? 2. What tools does he already have? You might contact the Wooden Boat School in Havre de Grace, Maryland as a source. Maybe a gift tuition? Great place for yachtsmen!
