The marina was threatening to padlock the boat, so she took control. She arranged to have it removed this week, appeasing the marina, and put up an add that got immediate and extraordinary results. The boat will probably be sold before the removal deadline.
She is a communications consultant, and if it was my boat, she definitely would have earned her fee.
You seemed to have the inside info on this event. Any photos to go along with it?

Re: Best Ad Ever. Today.

Is it even worth asking if a legit stupid ex-girlfriend ad is okay, as long as it works and she really was stupid?

Nah, never mind.

Forget the boat. How about photos of the girl.

You never know she may be lurking in the background reading this thread if she sails.

Experience teaches us things we would rather not know.

Ya, I was asking for photos of an Alberg 22.

I know what Albergs look like. I was more interested in seeing what a women who owns two looks like.

Not only that if you play your cards right she'll buy you a sailboat.

Reminds me of an old joke passed around back in my skibum days.

What do you call a sailor that breaks up with his girlfriend?


Homeless.

Or in this case boatless.

Re: Best Ad Ever. Today.

I have no idea if she's smart or crazy or both - they're not mutually exclusive you know - but the ad did put a smile on my face.

Thanks for posting it.

You never know who might be watching these posts...
Kudos to all with a sense of humour. As for what "this girl" looks like...guess you'll never know

One last thing: read the ad again. She's not a girl who takes garbage sitting down. If you think calling her names is going to phase her...think again.
