Its a beautiful gorgeous boat!...alas un affordable to me. Good luck on your sale.

One comment: the music or video that plays is distracting and imposing, and cannot be disabled before launch of your page. If someone is trying to view your page or navigate through the links, they may quickly abandon because they are forced to have to deal with it...and they may not be in an environment that allows privacy. I would just put a link in there for videos so the user can choose, or disable it completely if it is music.

Nice boat, but the music is just plain horrible....A total turn off.

Nice boat, I'd have to agree that the music is monotonous. At least mix it up. It starts over at each change of pages and all you hear is the first stanza (or less). You will have better luck selling the boat...IMHO. In the long run, I was driven from the site due to the music. What was the price.....ahhhh....I can't go back!
