Point being that your wife's opinion is critical, but don't assume you know what it is until you've sailed a lot of boats together
Seriously? Your wife told you that another man's wife boat has a fat butt?

We can also print the cushions using your own images by custom order. A custom order requires a special run with a minimum of 5 cushions, but those cushions can be multiple images and/or different prints on each side and/or any sizes...including "mountain goat pillow pictures or pictures of boaty katt"?!? Custom orders cost a bit more though.

All the printing is done digitally and of very high quality with Innergreen Eco Friendly Inserts.

PM us if you're interested. Mention this thread and we'll give you a 25% discount on any 'stock' (not custom) orders.

Re: Is a boat a kind of "Man Cave"?

We stopped in Ludington last summer and got aquainted with the stink-boaters tied behind us. The Lady of the yacht invited us to join them for dinner. Rene & Lynn pulled together some really great dinner I seem to remember but there was something about the booze that blocks the details. Group photo is Owner's brother, owner's wife and owner. A very fun night.

This was hardly a man-cave. I always assumed guys with these monster boats hired someone to do everything. The owner told me the tale of recovering this yacht from the scrap pile after it had run aground on a reef in Florida. He did much of the work himself. It was magnificent Italian clasic everything. Nearly as big as many homes inside. The galley (sorry, no photos) was larger than our kitchen and pure luxury.

If it serves no other purpose, this thread has at least given the Hunter (and Beneteau) metrosexuals a rare moment to get puffed up about their shiny white plastic toys...and their blondes

Hi Ivo, welcome.

Would you mind reposting this as a new thread? It will avoid some confusion.
