"PEOPLE WHO CAN'T CHOOSE WHEN TO GO OUT, CHOOSE TO GO OUT IN A BOSTON WHALER "

Famous BW ad from the late 80's, showing a US Coast Guard 22 Guardian, with twin OMC 100's, in bad weather off Cape Hatteras.

The BW ad showing the 18 Outrage overturned on a beach with a 44 ton bulldozer sitting on it was also part of this series.

Don't ask me how that happened. I hit some magic function key by mistake and look what I got. This must be the record for instant multiple posts.

I was in the process of typing that this was another of Whaler's early well known ads, showing a Montauk.

lhg posted 12-13-2001 11:47 AM ET (US)     Profile for lhg    
OK, here's one more, and it's most appropriate for this Classic Whaler website:

"THE LONGER YOU OWN IT, THE BETTER IT LOOKS"

BW ad showing a 16' Sakonnet and a VW Beetle on a beach.

All of these ads were indicative of the kind of Company BW used to be. They had a culture and a creativity all their own! It's too bad so much of this has been lost. Now look at BW's boring ads.

Maybe the ad should read:

"If you want to find calm water, a gas dock or a dockside watering hole, follow a Sea Ray".

From Shakespeare and reportedly Stalin:

"The first thing you do is kill all of the lawyers."

Which reminds me of a bawdy tale:

A man walks into a bar, and slams down a whiskey and shouts, "all lawyers are as--oles!" Whereby, a man on the next stool says, "I take exception to that." The first man says " Oh I'm sorry are you a lawyer?" The second man responds, " No I'm an as--ole!!"

Sorry to pick on laywers, but they do make easy prey.

Great post. Since I am retired, I guess that's why I can do both. Anxious to hear what my ladyfriend thinks of that. HehHeh (laugh of dirty old man - Lady lover and Whaler lover)

A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are made for.

We trained hard, but it seemed every time we were beginning to form into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method is can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization.

Jim,
Those were the words of Toad in the classic 1908 book, Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Graham. They have stood the test of time, and I think of them when I mess with my Whaler. Toad had a little rowboat.
