So who doesn't have to work and is flocking to the Newport Boat Show with loads of disposable cash?

I'll drive you and pay for your admission if you fill my boat gas tanks!

Wtf, at a boat show? That's awful.
I got them back.

I walked barefoot over to a shoe vendor and bought a new pair of shoes and I spent the rest of the show looking at everyone’s feet.

At the end of the show I found the shoes outside a boat with some other shoes so I staked the place out.

My plan was to push the guy by accident into the water when he came out of the boat and hopefully before he actually had my shoes on.

So Mrs. Flare and I waited and waited and no one was claiming the shoes.

Finally everyone had left the boat and my shoes were sitting there all alone.

I went on the boat and there was no one there.

That’s it. I got my shoes back but I have been disappointed ever since that I didn’t get to push someone in the water at the Newport International Boat Show.

Maybe this year.

My Tanks are only 115 gallons each


Checkout the new Back Cove 41! Back Cove Yachts

I heard that any of the pre-indictment boats over a mil come with the pretty girl! Ask!

If your close to the ocean, Freedom Boat Yacht Club FBYC membership might work. Its funny watching the people renting these boats bouncing off other boats on the way out or in. They are responsible for the first 2500 in damages. I heard that the initial total cost to join is around 4500, and monthly membership is around 450 per month for 12 months a year plus gas used for every 6hr reservation.

Here's a FBYC member

I heard that it was a FBYC rental that ran over and killed a lady on a small catamaran a few weeks ago. Some of the renters are crazy idiots, then there's the middle age hormonal ladies that have the I don't care and just want to kill anyone attitude, but will say "Sorry!" after it happens and smile.

You can come over to my house. I have three boats in the yard--any could be had for the right low-low price.

No shoes allowed is very common because it sucks removing all the black marks from the deck. I do find it odd someone stole your shoes.

You usually don't have to remove your shoes if your wearing Topsiders. Docksiders won't work since they're meant only for the dock.

"You can come over to my house. I have three boats in the yard--any could be had for the right low-low price."

Do any of them look like this one I spotted in a shed?

A guy I know said that based on his life situation, he might be able to afford a small twenty year old 26' sailboat in his third lifetime!

I asked the price of a yacht one year.

The kind of yacht where they hire the pretty girls to stand around and look good and hand out information and answer questions.

I asked the price.

“Three point two.” She said.

Beautiful.
3.2 thousand?? I'm in!

Oh. Million? Does that price include the pretty girls, or is that extra or I need to bring my own?

Sooooo...what were the show highlights? I'm sure there were plenty of used car sales dropouts trying to sell stuff!
