If its a fat bottom cruiser, they are likely a sailnetter.
In any event they probably have a spare beer, so you might as well introduce yourself.

Here is a photo of the stern of a sister ship (Formosa 41). I guess I fit the stereotype. Oh, and since I brew beer on the boat in 5 gallon batches, yes, I have a spare for you.

On the other hand, since I have no internet on the boat and don't take my laptop sailing, you'd never know. Unless I had another way to alert those "in the know"....

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
