Gents.. Sorry.. Your going to have to loose that weight after all. Your supplier of sexy yacht caps is no more. Lancaster Caps.. in business since 1929 has shut its doors for good. What’s to blame.. California labor laws made making the caps at a competitive price point impossible. This has been a family business for close to 90 years. Moving out of California was not an option according to the owner. I suppose the over 60 sexy Woody Boater Skipper caps sold last year was not enough. Along with us here, they sold to Police Departments, Fire Depts… Military, and Hollywood. Having done many of the hats for the film Pearl Harbor. I am sick to my fat stomach. UGH.. The good news though is that we were the very last order of hats out of Lancaster and are receiving our shipment on Friday. All are sold though. I do have some dead beat payers though, and if they do not come through. I will bring the extra hats to FLA in 7 DAYS… no mail order again. I may have 1 or 6.. and they are all in different sizes. So I cannot predict or “save one” it will be a first come first serve basis. I know I am performing horrendously poor customer service. Something that I am proud of since we really hate selling stuff anyway. i would just rather give it all away. The readers of Woody Boater contribute so much as it is. The Sexy Skipper cap thing, just became a way to pass along some savings to our readers. We will not settle for the cheap costume hats and vow to look for another alternative. Stay tuned.. Stay Proud Mr or Miss Woody Sexy Skipper Boater!
