A Conversation for The Boat Yard
Aardvark Calliope Started conversation Sep 18, 2000
I would like to request a nice 10-12 foot open sailing craft for old times sake. I used to have an 11 foot Snark but when I moved to an apartment I had to get rid of it. Depressing but it served its purpose while I had it. I obtained it through a friend that obtained it from a neighbor. The lady gave it to my friend due to the fact she was divorcing her husband. She wanted to irritate him. Anyway, when my friend moved, he gave it to me and I cleaned it up a bit and took it out for a few 2-3 hour trips. It took me awhile to get the hang of it. I do not know all the "sailing terms" but it doesn't really matter. Left-Port Right-Starboard. That's all I am going to say about that.
Back to my original request. Do you have any boats like that and if so, can I take one out for a bit? I have a cooler full of Newcastle and a waterproof tape player with a collection of Jimmy Buffett tapes so, other than the boat, I am all set. Thanks.

Looks like your fully prepared! Sorry about the delay,
Why of course! Here at the boat yard we have every kind of aquatic vessel that exists, or can be dreamt of
Here you are, one 11ft Snark in Blue striped design with a Red Ensign flying from it's aft mast. Fully kitted out with survival kit and a life raft.
I hope you have an enjoyable time.

Excellent! I shall take good care of it while I am out cruising. I will bring back a souvenir if I do not go overboard. Thanks again.

Just to the lake. Hopefully I will not go over the spill way. I may just cruise around, catch a few fish, drink a few and pass the time. Relaxation has not been around for some time. I did go to a spa with my wife last week, though. I highly recommend it.
With winter coming on, I day dream of sailing more often. Then when the warm air comes about in the spring, I shoot out of the gates like a thoroughbred to the water for summer sports. Thanks again for the boat.
