Re: Boat Cards: Pompous & Anal or A Good Idea?
We don't "press" them on anyone.. if we meet another boat/crew and connect we may ask if they'd like one. I think I made 25 or so up a couple of years back, I'm sure I still have 15 in the stack.. so it's not as if we're walking down the marina dropping cards into cockpits!!
Half the time we forget they're there.
btw with all the desktop publishing applications these are easily made at home with the appropriate card stock..
