I've been boating for years and I'm skeptical of this one. I don't think tan female sailors exist.

Nothing like setting the Auto Pilot, alone, middle of the lake, sails nicely drawing, gentle rock from the swell............well you get the picture.

Yeah, yeah...not fallin' for that one...lol. Wouldn't want any photoshop artists to take advantage (oh wait...)

You'll have to take my word for it...or ask Sway, TJK or T34C...they'll probably be able to verify.
