OK, so I am sitting in my boatshop on Sunday, refinishing an 8 foot clinker pram, when a guy comes in wants to buy a boat. This isn't too uncommon, happens once or twce a week.
This guy comes in and wants a "life guard boat".
I didn't have one laying around, so he looks at the 5 boats in my shop, and stops at the 10' swampscott dory tender.
Guy asks how much, and when I give him an answer he says "Christ! how can you charge that much for a mini-golf course decoration?
Apparently this guy thought that I made boats for miniture golf courses!!!!!
He did not believe for a minute that guys row around in wooden boats when there are so many good *&^%$glass boats available.
and people wonder why I keep a day job!!!!!!
