Got a good chuckle out of this ad

I was just perusing this ad for a 40' Hershine and happened to notice the following in the details section:

Deck Mtrl: Teak over Fiberglass
Disp: 28000 lb (12701 kg)
Ballast Weight: Heavy
Ballast Type: Spouse

Range: Cabo Wabo Cantina = 1100 km

I think I know why he's selling! lol

That's funny, I almost told my wife about it but quickly changed my mind.
