WARNING: Please Be Careful On How You Use Your Classic Boat Valentines Day Cards.
As part of an ongoing public service to our readers we are happy to give you all some art for your homemade classic boat Valentines Day Cards. NOW! please, be careful. We have lectured on the virtues and subtle suggestive nature of using a classic boat card. Not the suggestive you are hoping for we might add. The cards used right can be used to introduce the concept of a new boat in the family. You are linking classic boats with your love.
NOW, there is a dark side to this. It can be seen as a play if done to obviously. Like don’t say, ‘BE MY VALENTINE’, ON the shot of the boat, because what you really mean is that the boat is your valentine. Not good. That goes inside OR OUTSIDE THE BOAT. . Unless it already says it on the art.
Also, DO NOT bring up the subject of another boat to soon after the card is given. DO NOT. “Oh dear thanks for the card, I love you too, then you say, I want another boat”. Just insert Divorce instead of boat on that one. Wait a week, not to long, so she forgets.
Now the amount of years you have been together play into this. Been married a long time? She forgot about the card 1/2 hour after you gave it to her. Just started shacking up? Wait a month, that card will buy you plenty of time, and start the conversation. “Oh I love this old boat on the card! “”Yes dear, its kinda cool”. DO NOT say, it’s a 1944 Hackercraft with a 1300 hp engine, that is way, way to much info. play it cool. Then a month later, you “just happen” to find one at the Antique Boat Center. LINK HERE! And if you want to see more cards. Here is the story from last year, and the YEAR BEFORE. AND BEFORE BEFORE. And Before Before Before. Good luck, Valentine Responsible! Dang who knew we did so many of these?
We hope this works for you, the entire Classic Boat hobby depends on how you do this.
Dang it Matt, you’re the best and you do know everything…
Matt, One more time you saved the day, just like last year, and the year before that, and …… Thanks
Timing is the key to success here. I strategically placed one of his Valentine Cards, not last year, or the year before that, or the one before the year before that one, and finally this year she is joining me on the St. Johns River South Bound Cruise just before the Sunnyland Antique Boat Festival. IT WORKED !!!
Thats fantastic. These cards are like little seeds. Some take longer to grow. Just add water and all works out.
Al you are bursting my bubble! All this time I thought Karen agreed to go along this year because she will get to spend the week with my and my charming personality.
My wife wants something of equal or greater value. I tried that with a grey boat but she also counts the restoration costs. After 31 years she’s on to me.
