I can sympathize with the dealer, quite frankly. I can only imagine how often they would get jerked around by tire kickers, and taking a boat out for a sail requires a lot of time and effort. There has to me more than a request to go for a boatride.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
