Things you can say about your boat but not your girlfriend?
 
A classic subject from 'Whose Line is it Anyway':

"She's riding kinda low"

"You can fit a dozen guys down below"

"She's taking on water"

"Nice trim"

"She's going down!"

Can you think of anymore?

She likes it in the aft.

She rides better bow down.
That one is really beamy
Reminds me of this one stolen from "that other site," referencing new sails.

Dear Crew,

Y'all did pretty well last year but I thought it would be good to get some new talent on the boat.

The good thing about being owner though, and having to pay for it, is that I get to play with them first. So I dragged those raven haired beauties down to the boat and took them out last night for a test drive. No fat bottom girls in the bunch they are all very long and lean and well trimmed. But they demand attention. First I had to bend one of them over the boom, but they all went up and down nicely and I got to spend hours playing. The good news is that if you grind them just right, they are quite a bit faster than the old girls. I was concerned that the wife might figure out what was going on, especially since one of them is a screecher, but I managed to hide her below decks out of sight after I was done. Anyway, you guys can have sloppy seconds on Wednesday night.

Beautiful top sides. Nice whetted area.

She won't go down (sink that is, guys!)

It took six months in the yard to get her bottom right. But now she is much faster.

Didn't I just replace those parts

The six of us take her for a ride at least once a week.

She can't really be taken out solo it takes at least five.
