25% Of Milenials Reported They Would Prefer To Date A Robot. This Could Be The Key To Classic Boatings Future
In a recent study, yes this is a real thing.. Internet real, the report was created by Paris-based Havas, and examined the future of artificial intelligence, and people’s attitudes to the future of technology.
The findings were based on a survey of 12,000 people of mixed ages worldwide. We will link to the story below.It goes on and on about how cell phones are taking away human relationships and so on. Okay. Now, here is how this effects the Classic Boating Community.
Are you ready, cause this isn’t based on nothing but my strange brain. See, I bet over 25% of men would prefer to date their boats or cars. Forget Robots. If you look deep into your soul, you know on some level I am right. How many of you have chosen your boat obsession over a happy spouse? be honest.. There is a reason your spouse is jealous of all that time you spend in the garage/barn. This is a natural thing by the way. Men respond to visual stimulus and women, whats in your heart, emotion. Now, to be fair, this can be flip flopped. But you get the point. So how can this strange observation help the culture grow?
Well, maybe it helps Classic Boat brokers market their boats differently. maybe this explains the story on seduction? Maybe just maybe Chris Craft had this figured out. That a boat is the wife/girlfriend you really want. Just the boat. Maybe there is a brain connection there. And to take it further, it’s not a millennial thing, but a human thing regardless of age. Sure today its robots, but before it was Cars, and boats, and before that, cannons, carriages, and probably back in cave man days, there was some caveman who was collecting rocks and loving them. not that there is anything wrong with that. So go out and love on your boat today, its cold out in the barn..
If you go by $100/foot/year to maintain a wooden boat then my wife is WAY more expensive to maintain. Yep I think the boat wins , well that was easy. Should have figured this out before I went Christmas shopping.
That psychological stuff is way over my head, but I love the big Continental in the header. Michigan chapter Christmas party today. Woohoo!
Will they sand and varnish without complaining?
My wife works with me at Diamond Boat Work, she love to sand and varnish, she has a better eye than me on a quality finish
She does the upholstery, and she just removed 4200 screws from the sides of a 25 sportsmen. I’m blessed to have both of my true loves together
they will do anything you program them to do, and best of all they have an off switch.
. . . I’m already slightly off topic – – Because Jimmy’s Barn sure catches my imagination AND eye – – It must be 40ish feet wide and a hunerd or so feet long with an almost sky high ceiling AND attached to the living space – – just open a door and Bam! – – you’re immediately there – – Barn Lust, Lust in a Barn, Lusting over Barn space and contents – – Just might be another story lurking there to lust over – – I see no mud daubers or pesky spiders or sparrows or starlings or dusty gravel floor and even a small attic for more storage – – Oh My – – Just Wonderful – –
I’m with you on the barn lust but doesn’t have to be attached to living space, it would be my living space. I’ll even concede width to 36′. 36, 24, 36 now has a different meaning to me now.
Let’s talk about the anchor design cut out Chris Craft used to accent their cabinetry. What year does it first appear? Such a nice little detail. Brilliant in its simplicity!
Damn it Troy! Now every time I clean my anchor holes I’ll have to remember that image. You must have been a horrible child.
Must have been?
I kind of think I still am.
Well Dan, what does that anchor design really represent?
I can’t top the results of Troy’s Rorschach test….but I did spend a few hours in the barn yesterday with my baby. Winter coat #6 complete!
Millennials as a group are certainly socially and mentally challenged, but I don’t think you can blame smart phones. If you look closer, the oldest of the millenials are the most disturbed even though they spent the least time with phones, and the generation behind them that truly grew up post iPhone (2007) appear to be more mature for their ages and better adjusted than the millenials were and in many cases still are.
As for the love of cars, boats, motorcycles, airplanes, snow mobiles etc., they are all powerful machines that a man can control and can understand its inner workings. A girlfriend or wife…not so much.
I am in with whaler on the lust for Jimmys barn.
Now I have half a doven storage- shops scattered about all of which have boats and other things stored in them.
But nothing like Jimmys Barn.
In my neck of the woods even a pole building with gravel floor would be well over 100 thousand $.
Not likely in my lifetime without winning the lotto
Makes me feel like the “Good Ol’ Days” of WoodyBoater when my posts get taken down.
Thanks for the chuckle Matt! Maybe this is more palatable.
Yes Troy, Matt kicks mine out at times too….what the heck…rock on.
I am bringing a Whirlwind into my 12 X 18 rear shop room tomorrow. Ya see, what Jimmy and Matt have not figured out is if you have that much space you will be unrestrained in loading up with BOATS! So I keep the rear shop at 18 so I could not get a bigger one in there and take time away from Going Boating. But I have all the bells and whistles…overhead infra red heating….lots of good light, power in the walls every 4 feet…compressed air….tiny shop but all you need. The best refinisher I knew back in the day used his dusty single car garage and turned out stunning gloss and shine.
Eric Zelman is finishing up a killer shop here in Va. He will soon be as out of control as the rest of those Reedville guys, hell they can’t even resist a boat full of rat poop. Gotta luv em though!!!
Jimmy in Va. has a great shop …but he is an even greater guy.
