Re: Best Ad Ever. Today.

I think her ad is as much an attempt to embarrass the guy locally as a way to sell the boat with a funny story. But if she is as much into sailing as you folks say, she probably deserved more commitment than she got. Women like that are hard to find.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

She had to do something quick about the boat since the boyfriend washed his hands of it, leaving her the remainder of the purchase price, and the winter storage bill. 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.
