Camper special / Retirement home
This evening at the family get together at the in-laws the conversation started to drift toward the boats we own (my collection). The wine was flowing freely and we were picking on each other with great abandon.
Loads of fun.
I sprung it on the wife that i think i'll plant the 40 footer right off the deck buried up to the waterline, with blue stone surrounding the boat, so that i have a nice retirement home. This way i won't miss the boat when I'm to old to sail.
Nice and secure, stable and close by.
Give me a place to tinker in my old age and raise the sails up and down at will!
This way i can get away from the wife when she starts to nag. ( Keep in mind that this conversation was in fun. )
The rest of my family and in-laws have no clue how to sail. They have RV's so they could really appreciate this conversation. It got worse when it was mentioned that we would have to install a wood stove.
Wish u-all were there for the merriment that went on for several hours. One of our best Christmas eve episodes ever.
The wife is off to bed, to much proseco,,, we will see in the morning....
Merry Christmas all
