Who doesn't love a Monty Python reference?


Just to clarify - I started hearing the skit in my head when I read the OPs first comment and then reading all the "well, here's a boat with not much wood in it" and "what's wrong with wood?" and wood is nice inside".

Hey, the guy wants a boat without any wood in it. Not a boat with a bit of wood - one W/O ANY wood in it.

If you spend a "boatload" of money on your boat, shouldn't you get what you want?

And then there's me. I have a boat that is ALL WOOD. ("Well, we've got spam spam spam eggs and spam"). Now THAT is crazy.

Re: Finding A No Wood Boat

The single biggest problem with posting on forums like these is that you can't read "intent", sort of like you can't get voice inflection when texting, so two sentences that are completely the same grammar and spelling wise could mean totally different things.
