Not Really Cruising

I am online, on my boat, on a trailer, in my sister in law's back yard. Does this count as cruising?

Absolutely. I spent a whole summer cruising on the flying bridge of a wooden cabin cruiser on the hard in a RI marina. Well, there was a lot of boat work going on during the day. But, nice view of Narragansett Bay, sundowners tasted fine, no rolling, zero fuel cost. Some of the best cruising ever.

Beats sittin in a house don't it? I'm stuck inside packing up endless boxes for moving.

I suspect your mind is off cruising while you deal with that nasty mess. Hows the sewage problem coming along? I'm stuck inside packing up endless boxes for moving.

I loved the scene in Lethal Weapon where Danny Glover has his boat in the driveway and whenever he wants to escape the family he goes and sits in it and has a beer


A boat doesn't need water for you to be sailing!

If it makes you feel better about cruising on a boat, on a trailer, I'm cruising (in my mind) from my desk chair in the middle of a continent! At least you have the boat!

Having a bad day, Andrew?

Maybe you should chill out and cuddle a cat. Black or white

Perhaps you should send that one over to the thread about whether people's car choices match their boat choices!

OK now thats revolting!!!
Sorry, Minty but your pilot could have bought you anything and it would have looked better than that steaming pile of grey dung.

in fact the only benifit ti humanity it would be is as a kitty litter tray.

And the car matches it!!!

Somebody on the 17mil boat site posted this; "No Mr Bond; I expect you to be very very jealous of my Epic new boat. Then I expect you to die..." Very funny, IMHO! Hey look! We've hijacked another Unbusted thread! Man is he gonna be pissed...

The picture caption reads " The gigantic yacht easily dwarfs the waiting supercar on the dock"...but it should read "The yacht's owner sits in his supercar at the dock, trying to figure out how the F to get into his pointy boat..."
