Let's see your holiday decorated boats

Here's mine. Kinda bummed... the boat parade is tomorrow but it looks like the storm will cancel it.

The theme for the parade was "California Adventure", so I went with a wine theme.

I tried uploading the picture (448x591 91k) but the site wouldn't accept it. So I had to host it on my own server.



Merry Christmas!

Yeah but the pic was within the specs listed as ok by the site. No big deal.

BTW the LED christmas lights are awesome. The lights going up the mast, down the stays, and the stern rail are all LED. So 9 LED strings + the Happy Holidays Sign = 30 (I'm assuming watts) on the portable battery/inverter. Plug in the 3 regular strings (wine bottle, glass, wine) and poinsettas, and it jumps to 220.

My picture's terrible, but it'll at least give you the idea. The candle is about 40 feet tall. You can only see the top of the "Merry Christmas" sign because the picture was taken at the dock and it's blocked by another boat. We got Best in Flotilla - Sail, as the only sailboat. (There was another sailboat, smaller, but he dropped out due to poor weather conditions.) I think there were about 10-12 boats total.

Very cool. Surprised there's not more people posting pics. I just made the hot buttered rum mix and will be heading down to the boat--storm or no storm we're gonna party!

Very Clever

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
