Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

If the IRS asks you what it is, it's a boat.

If the pretty girl sitting next to you at the bar asks what it is, it's a yacht.

Any girl who is impressed by the term yacht is barely qualifying for a one night stand, certainly not the type of girl you marry.

The girl who is impressed that you own a 22 foot boat, and still wants to go sailing, with out a blow-drier, now she's the one you marry...

Re: "Boat" vs. "Yacht"?

Speaking on behalf of those of us from "flyover country"; I will NEVER own a yacht or be a yachtsman. I am a proud working man who made his bones in the Naval service, commercial fishing (crabbing mostly), and in the Merchant Marine operating oil patch supply boats; I will never take rank amongst the arrogant, over-priviledged, silver-spoon types and I wouldn't want their company if I could fit in with them.

When I lived in Annapolis, I had a girldfriend that would go camping with me on my 21' Victory with a $40 Seyvelor dinghy. We had a little square BBQ that fit over the back hatch.

Anyway, I married her. Now we have 4 kids.

So, yes Maine, I agree with you.

Regards,
Brad

Edit -- adding picture of a sistership. Mine had the same color scheme. She was my previous (and first) boat. She could really point high. The P.O. sailed around the Delmarva peninsula with her.

Exactly!

Some friends haven't fared so well. Seems that some spouses want to spend their partner's money to impress others or feed their ego (blurry line between those two concepts). It's a big drain on the finances, relationship, etc. Sometimes the spouse influences the other person to trim away his/her friends. I guess the spouse is making a banzai tree -- a stunted plant that they mould however they want.

Back on topic... if only to influence who you attract into your life, call your boat a sailboat.

Regards,
Brad

It was a joke. That's why I put the little " " thingy behind it (for future reference).

God, some of ya'll must be fun to hang out with.
