At first glance its a simple album cover.. But upon closer look, it just gets strange. Not Chads Monkey strange,,, Really sick strange. How exactly would this have been a fun boat trip? Maybe they were slamming down martinis for the entire trip?
From time to time we enjoy posting pictures of vintage boat babes. Sexism, yes, BUT, Honestly to us, they are part of the cheesy marketing effort of brands back in the day. They must be viewed with a sense of humor and part of pin up art history. The Marshall McCluhan quote says it all, “Ads are the cave art of the 20th Century” Are these ads and literature reflective of the times, or just dumb? Apparently, only men made purchasing decisions. And women were supposed to dress up and clean the boat. How much fun is that for your wife?
Yeah, that’s gonna happen! She is even in prison stripes!

Really? Is she going to sit there looking at you longingly while you play with a boat model? Really? “No honey, the red wire goes right there..” Oh honey this will be so much fun…By the way, you know this is a Custom, not a Riviera, The seat cushions are thicker, and did you know that they used Philips head screws on this, or was it reed and Prince? “Oh Doug, you are so hot.. Lets go inside and…..”
Maybe after the cheesy boat ride with all the “babes’ the guys sat around in their shorts and talked?
It’s not just women who were made to look dumb.. Here is another classic, like on fathers day men all sit around and “talk” Hey Bob, I sure like the fit on those yellow shorts, ?????????
Now if you will excuse me, I need to go my weekly sensitivity training.
