Favorite Boating Attire

This year, Mark Pierce and his girlfriend, Perla, presented me with a custom FlyWright shirt and Carquinez Coot hat which Perla had made during a trip to the Philippines. Then during our Fleet Week celebration this fall, they gave Meg and me great custom America's Cup/FlyWright shirts! I was very touched by their thoughtfulness and generosity. (see below for the other FlyWright shirt)



Yesterday, I opened a package from our own dwhatty and found that he had sent a custom hat for the holidays! At first, I thought it was a gift for the Admiral, but I have been corrected!



This dates back to an ongoing exchange between us that started when I made a comment about David wearing his wife's hat.



One thing led to another and before you know it, we had a thread about my pink boat, complete with photoshopped pix! (Somewhere along the way, the pictures disappeared! I know nothing about it, I swear!)

A big THANK YOU to my friends Mark and David for providing me with such tasteful and colorful boating attire. You guys are the best!!

Here's a picture of me disguised as a Christmas tree.

Here, Perla and I are attempting to approximate the Coot's color scheme, but the pants aren't enough dark green. My Dad provides the white.

Very cool gifts.

A former co-worker, as part of his job and while wearing a pink shirt, once interviewed a Richmond, CA police detective. The detective projected disdain until my co-worker mentioned he piloted F-4 jets as well as low-level, propeller-driven recon planes over Vietnam.

These pics are a little old now (before i got lazy and fat lol) but I'm wearing my typical station get up. Not quite like the Priscilla queen of the desert movie but there is a pink shirt in the mix lol. No broke back mountain jokes either you lot !!!! lol The last pic is my typical boating attire :-D

You notice I removed you. The Admiral makes the hat way more acceptable.

Oh no Al's 100% acceptable!

But "Admiral" is very very acceptable indeed.

I came over to this thread wondering "what on earth can they possibly be talking about" Sounded very yachty to me. More fun and sillyness I see but I must be getting to like it and we've talked about most serious things "to death" so we probably need to evolve at least a bit into other things and who better to do it than Mark, David and Al. Go guys!

It looks like she is protected from the cold water and you as well.

Al, I knew that hat was just "you". And, folks, it looks pinker in the picture than the nice "Breton red" it actually is. If Al had not posted this I had threatened to dust off my photoshop program. Good preemptive move Al.

Al, the boys are waiting for you in Key West. Don't forget to "pop your collar". If you need instructions, click here.

Boating wouldn't be as fun if fellow boaters didn't dress like this.

But they couldn't be on Eric's "Willy". He doesn't have a bow rail for them to hold onto. See bow rails do have a function.

I agree Vinny. Bow rails do serve a purpose.
