Buying A Boat

Recommended Posts

First think of a name for the boat, then after permission has been given, go out and buy it. For suitable names I suggest the following...  (replacing the **** for your wife's name)

Beautiful ****,  Goddess ****, Wide beam ****,  .... Ahhh, perhaps not that one. :)

My daughter was trying to persuade her father to let her get a puppy. Using the preemptive technique very familiar to salespeople she asked "now what shall we call it? Her father without even looking up from his dinner replied that he knew just the name . "what's that"? asked my daughter , "Homeless "he replied

Given that my wife's name is Heike none of those have a good "ring" to the name...

Anyhow, I didn't buy a boat - I bought this (has no "name", only fits one person & I'm really a bit too tall for it):

Is Heike Dutch? It would explain your buying a gilder

She is German & since I live in Germany the glider has a "D" registration.

SInce pure gliders in Germany have numeric registrations e.g. D-1234 the fact that this one starts off with a "K" after the "D-" indicates that its a motoglider i.e. has an auxilliary engine that folds back into the fuselage behind the solar panels you can just see.

This one is capable of self-launching which adds to the flexibility (& price).

Thinking about it, this explains the joke "How many dyslexic Dutch economists does it take to learn to fly?"

Ok, not one of the mainstream jokes of the stand-up community, but then again, I liked it... well I would wouldn't I.? :)
