If a man speaks at sea where there is no woman to hear, is he still wrong?

My B-I-L used to sell manufactured housing. The proper term is "Twice wide".

A major feature of a "Twice wide", is the "Glamour Bath".

So you could be "Twice wide" wit a "Glamour Bath" LOL

First Step?

Or going a different direction with Journey, how about "Steve Perry", "Faithfully", or "Open Arms"?

I just realized that a good name for the dinghy would be: Short Timer.

I like where you're going with that. How about another band from that era?

You could use the phase To Eternity and Beyond.
The boat would be Eternity and the dink would be Beyond

Or was that To infinity and beyond????

I know I going to catch crap for this, but I thought the boat name turned out funny!

A few years back there was a new guy that shows up in our marina with a Macgregor 26M that had no name. The story goes he bought the boat at a boat show thinking it was going to do everything he ever wanted a boat to do. The best of both worlds.

We started ribbing him that the boat didn't have a name and that was unlucky! He was never happy with the boat and said he did not know how long he was going to keep it and why name it. This went on for about half the season.

One day there was lettering on the transom of the boat.

It read........ Mac & Cheesy

I love it.

I have not read the entire thread, but one of my favorites I have seen over the years was, "Our Kids College Fund"
Not really funny but... I'm just saying........

I have a good friend who bought a boat that was named Irresponsible. Later he upgraded to bigger boat so he named it Irresponsible Too a few years passed and now he owns a Melges 24 named Totally Irresponsible.
