    YF gotta have style.

    Then again, some might prefer the Fidel style of chapeau

    Definitely prefer that type. At 6' I don't need a hat standing 3" above my head for that hip-hop/Abe Lincoln/Elmer Fudd look.

    I've got a pic that I'm tempted to post here Fish (I posted in my home office to keep me humble), but I'll preserve a last bit of self-respect.:D

    Actually I like that for a T shirt.

    Just change it to "I get my boat/boating porn @ yachtforums.com"
    Under, above or wrapped around the Yacht Forums port hole logo. :D

    It isn't a dirt dog down Tee unless it includes a truly miserable play on words.

    I have a YF-Polo Shirt. When I am drive to the boot Düsseldorf in January it is too cold for that in Germany. In the case that I am wearing a business shirt with sweat shirt, I would prefer a Keyholder with name plate or Lars' Suggestion.

    I am with Garry Hartshorn. If we compare our site time here to anything else, it may be an addiction, perhaps even sensual. Shirts that confess our need for this connection, or any such approach with humor, I am buying in quantity. "Yachtporn" may not look good in print or promotion, but it is certainly what we are engaged in. Ideas welcome!

    Greetings,
    Underdrawers which state "YF is the best and that's the straight poop"....or maybe not.

    Looks to me that there is a clear 1st & 2nd place. I think I'd leave the cutesy sayings to the marina's, t-shirt shops, fishing docks, tourist towns, etc. and stick with just YF or YachtForums.Com, etc., at least for the initial run. No need to risk degrading the image. In this area we see a lot of media logo-ed items from NBC, CBS, ABC, Channel 12, plus boating mags, etc. and you rarely see anything beyond their logo, name and maybe a tag line. Classy.

    Did you get your white Polo shirt last time?

    I've worn it once and still can't get the Bloody Mary stain out of it.

    Hint to others, 40 knots and a stick of celery are not best mixed on the back seat!!!!!

    I look forward to my new black cap. :D

    Thank you Rene! I thought about making neck straps, but with the number of people that want to strangle me, I don't want to give anything to grab on to.

    Haven't designed it yet. Will post a few ideas before we print. Probably in the Spring, early Summer. Still trying to catch up on 2010 stuff!

    How about flotation deviced for the boat keys, perhaps some sort of mini-fenders? I could get some printed for you if interested, just would need the design for the print.
