Lash Me To The Mast Before I Buy A Boat!

It's the Sirens! I can hear them singing in my ears, luring me into boat ownership! Lash me to the mast 'else I'll go crazy!

The Sabre Sirens are calling me and drawing me ever closer! Is there any hope of resisting them?

Um, there are a number of ways to interpret this remark!
Sounds like you are ready to 'take the plunge' - so to speak.

Go for it..

You know you want it...We know you want it...

Post pics and price and I'm sure we'll be glad to tell you how you did...




Otherwise, I just bought new halyards for my mast and I'm sure we can work something out....

Monty Python had a great bit that would be a very appropriate response here - nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Sabre's are a great boat. If this is one of the older ones be sure to have it checked for sabre rot....

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
