There was this beautiful moment filled with romance, and then all of a sudden it was Wild Kingdom. I had completely forgotten until I read your post. It gave me a great big smile. It's always funny after the fact

Yes, Christie and I were married aboard a sloop in Rainbow Bay Pearl Harbor just off the Arizona Memorial. Boat's name was "True Love." Just after our vows there was 21 gun salute from a shore battery at Ford Island. Not because of our wedding but because it was Armed Forces Day.

It was not our boat but a friend's that we had sailed with many times and even taken out several times ourselves.

Regards,

Holly crap! That is the funniest thing I have ever read on this forum! I2F you win hands down! This has to be written into a movie...

BTW, has anyone ever gotten divorced on a boat?

Anjou,

It is quite common to get married aboard a sailing or motoryacht here in Bermuda. To be joined in holy wedlock (headlock, deadlock), aboard "Spirit of Bermuda", a rather unique vessel, is quite a summer event. We often say our boat, 41ft, sleeps 5, loves 10!.

Malvern eh!--home of the legendary Morgan cars.

No, but I was sort of threatened with it once. Thinking fast, I told her that Captains did not have that power. And then she wanted to know if Admirals did, and well ......

We married in '85 on the 98ft Fife we were working on. In Falmouth, Antigua. Luckily the last charter had just ended at a French island so we stocked up on Moet !! One bottle per guest. [still happily married]

Yes, Morgan are the only traditional Brit car builder still going strong. It was the companies centenary 2 weeks ago and the town was filled with cars from many countries and the company are launching a new model to celebrate.

Some guys must, statistically, be romantics.

However, I will never admit it!
