    experienced folks who have made YF one of the best resources on the web.

    giving the shirt off their back, sorta speak.

    If you're not a Senior Member and you'd like to receive a free YF t-shirt, simply post a link to www.YachtForums.com on your website, a blog or another forum (if relevant). Send us the link and we'll send you a shirt! BTW, social networks like Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter don't count.


    Here's what we need:

    1. You can have any color you want, as long as it's white!
    2. Supply your preferred size AND an alternate size.

    Size limitations:

    1. We did NOT print Small t-shirts, so order a Medium, wash it and eat a Big Mac.
    2. We did NOT print XXX-Large shirts. If you need this size, I'll send you the name of a cardiologist.
    3. Please don't send me your laundry habits or weight loss plans. Be a man and choose a size!


    Fill out the info below and send an email titled "T-SHIRT" to: Carl (at) YachtForums (dot) com

    Real Name:
    Shipping Address:
    Shirt Size/Alternate Size:

    Bummer.

    If I send a new 3 pack of XXXL Tall T-Shirts, will your printer accommodate?

    If I eat a Big Mac, I also have some new XXXXL Tall T-Shirts, just in case. :D

    Do I rate a volume (think economies of scale) discount?

    Just off the phone with the printer. It would be cost prohibitive to set-up a small number of XXXL shirts, however we could digitally print a few and it would only cost me $10 a shirt. The downside is the print will not be very bright and will fade quickly after a few wash cycles.

    I'm going to add 5 XXXL shirts to the JetForums run, which goes to print on Friday. If nothing else, I'll get one of these shirts to you. :)

    Shipping address?

    Would a PO Box work or do you need a real street address?
    thx, Ralph

    LOL! OK, looks like we're printing some XXXL's. I'll have a few digital shirts printed. Remember, the print won't "pop" and it will look washed out after the first cycle.

    Another option: we may need to order more shirts if we go through the first run quickly. If so, I'll add a few XXXL to the next run, but this won't be for another month or more. Will this work?

    All the shirts are being shipped via the USPS, so a P.O. Box is fine. :)

    Absolutely.

    Email a PO Box number and I'll ship 2 packages (3 each) of 3X Tall and 4X Tall

    crew neck T-Shirts, for your inventory.

    Seriously, in case you encounter Vinny ("You were serious?!").

    Thanks for the offer OP, but I'll cover the costs.

    I chose Gildan Ultra Cotton t-shirts. These are very high quality shirts that seem to run larger than other brands. I'm looking at a XXL and it's HUGE! For example, I'm 6'2" about 210 lbs with around a 34" waist and I've been in a gym most of my life. I'm not a little guy. The Large shirt fits me perfectly.

    Let's do this... I'll ship you guys XXL's. If it doesn't fit, give it to someone who likes to walk docks and we'll get some XXXL's made. OK? :)

    Carl, if the large one fits you perfect, can you reverse my choice to the "M" size? i'm only 5'9" :D

    Thank you for all these efforts Carl, not only with shipping all these T-Shirts but also for the 10 years hard work, making YF to one of my favourite places on the Internet. It is highly appreciated!

    Is there a "Thank you and appreciation" dictionary around? Since last night and am trying to find a good experssive word to say to Carl, Yacht Forums and all the other members for such generousity and fine work.

    I will quote RER on this:
    "By far the best yachting site on the WWW."
    A true fact.

    Thanks Carl and YachtForums members.

    Cheers,

    Alf
