1) Yachts that become so danged cool that, over the years, no longer depreciate, but, instead, appreciate. 2) If, unfortunately, we have to suffer yet other species extinctions, please let them be, in order, barnacles and zebra mussels. 3) WalMart discovers the burgeoning market for inexpensive boat equipment and parts for all the major manufacturers. 4) A blue-ribbon economics study that proves marina slips will provide a municipality with more income than condominiums will. 5) Just enough global warming to raise the sea level so that you don't hit that ##!@**#! rock ever again. 6) The level of general economic well-being rises sufficiently to allow Lars to retire off to his gorgeous little motorsailer, 'outmywindow' is able to acquire another window so that he is able to become 'outmywindows', CTDave moves up to a 60 Bertram in order to fit that necessary "bigger" Whaler on the foredeck, Teenna is named CEO of a large Italian yacht builder, Kelly is able to retire in style to the yacht of his choice, and---I'm running out of breath here---Carl finally completes his secret project: a nuclear-powered camera-equipped all-weather drone that can fly anywhere on the planet to take pix of yachts. With a flash that works. 7) Forty or fifty other posters to add to this Santa list ( hey, I'm not greedy ). Merry Christmas to all!
