Old Boat Sign A Steal For $17,488

Ya better hurry and buy it now before I do.

Ya better hurry and buy it now before I do.

I called my son at school, the one still in collage, “son.. dad wants a sign for above the sofa, do you mind coming home and working at McDonalds for a semester… The boatress is on board, she loves the idea of having a Raytheon sign in the house, and it seems like a bargain for only $17,488.. If it had been $17,500 it would have felt like I got ripped off, but that 12 buck difference makes this an absolute steal. OK, “some” may seem like I am a tad nuts, I mean who needs a Raytheon sign in the living room, it’s more of a master bead room thing, We did talk about making it the head board for the master and commander, but we want everyone to see it and what a bargain we got… We may even spend a couple more bucks and set up some special lighting for it. If you want to drool all over this amazing sign you can click here.. if you are looking for other cool things to buy, click here.

    I actually think I prefer the illuminated Penn Yan sign that I picked up for Master Porter Mayer, proud Penn Yan owner and progeny of exalted Arabian owners Mike & Nicole Mayer a couple of years back. It has a an illuminated clock in it, with an image of a Penn Yan gliding gracefully across some presumably NY lake. Porter hung it in his room and equipped it with a clapper so he can turn it on and off from his bed. It was a bit cheaper than this, something like $17,403 less, and more fun.

    I guess the vendor of this sign has located the local crack supplier in Naples and must be keenly experimenting with the product. Hanging prices like this on an item leave little room for competing explanations.

      Presumably Keuka Lake, where Grandpa “Hank the Plank” Mayer (aka Fred) currently resides.

    Wonder how much he bought it for from the Raytheon Exec? No more than $488.00. Maybe that is where that number came from?

    I think the only person that would want it for that price would be the Raytheon Exec. Oh wait, he gave it away……..

    When Raytheon first introduced their GPS and Radar for private pleasure craft, a friend of mine was the rep here in Seattle. They were evidently in a hurry to get the product up and running, so a few details weren’t fully vetted on the demo unit they had at the boat show. Where they now indicate “distance to destination” or something to that effect, the message on the screen was “Range to Target… Finding one of those might be worth some $$$ 🙂

    Speaking of shopping…

    (Okay, bad segue.)

    When can we expect the Woody Boater Swag Store to return?
