The nautical gentleman
Well hello again,
The relationship between man and boat has a rich and intriguing history. I will not go into the details here, except to say that gentlemen invented the boat many years ago, and has been sailing ever since. The gentleman is associated particularly with the yacht – a recreational boat of gentlemanly proportions.
Of course, boats are expensive ventures. So if you cannot afford to purchase marine transportation for yourself, you should work your gentlemanly charm on someone who has. In return, you can teach them how to be more of a gentleman by directing them to this blog.
But why a boat, you may ask? I was just getting to that. So read on…
There are many advantages to having access to a boat! They include:
1. You get to wear a sailors hat, and potentially look like Frank Sinatra and/or Gene Kelly:
2. On the open water, no one asks you to put out your cigar.
3. Members of the female gender find it very hard to resist a man who has conquered the ocean.
4. You don’t need any training to operate a boat; true gentleman is able to intuitively operate a boat, motorcycle with sidecar or plane (when in mortal danger).
And with that, I wish you happy boating. May the sea be kind and the scotch be plentiful.
