Re: Yacht and Boat
She's a beautiful yacht when you buy her.
It's a stinking boat when you have to work on it.
She's a well-fitted yacht when you're trying to impress your in-laws.
It's a barely floating, almost worthless, boat when the taxman calls.
She's a grand yacht on a fine summer's day and you're sailing while sipping a cocktail.
It's a tiny little boat when you get caught in a squall and you're pining a hot cup of coffee, if only to wash the taste of barf out of your mouth.
She's a yacht if the jacket you wear on her is "dry-clean only"; and you sometimes wear your deck shoes to work to look "casual".
It's a boat if the jacket you wear on her is nominally water-proof, smells of mildew, and gets "cleaned" when you spray it down with dock hose; and your wife won't let you in the house until you take those damed boat shoes off in the garage.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
