Election Blues Charters

For the past several Presidential election cycles (in the USA), it seems a few celebrities always come out and say "If so and so wins, I am moving to Canada."  Luckily for Canada, they never do move regardless of who wins.  However, as we all know, this election is unlike ANY other in the short history of US Presidential elections.

Tom and I have never even thought of turning sv Honey Ryder into a charter business aka taking paying customers aboard for holiday.  1.)  We don't really have the room.  2.)  I don't know that either of us has the personality i.e patience at this phase of our lives for that.  3.)  We don't like you people that much to have you as guests paying or not!  Just kidding.....well....sort of..... 

However, with this unprecedented......oh hell, let's just call it was it really is......crazyass election coming up, we realize that there is a potential to help out our fellow Americans as well as pad our cruising kitty BIG time - a very American thing indeed!  Therefore we are thinking of opening sv Honey Ryder up after the November election to those fleeing the outcome.  No matter who wins there will be plenty on the losing side who just can't believe it and must get away for some relief and retrospection - ha....more like heavy drinking.  Time on sv Honey Ryder might be just the ticket.  Besides, Canada is cold in November, December, January, February and such.  Hell, even the Canadian's don't stick around for winters up there unless they need healthcare.  Plus, they don't want all us Americans up there.  I hear they are thinking of building a wall to keep us out.  Just kidding.....I think!  I saw a You Tube video about a Canadian wall or some such so it must be true, right?

Again, we haven't yet made a firm decision, this is just an idea we are kicking around.  There sure seems to be a need.  I have already gotten several emails letting me know "If so and so wins, we are packing our bags and heading your way the day after."  Like any good gouge  er...... popular item during times of need, this won't come cheap.  Nope, if we decide to do this, pricing will be at a premium!  Think generator pricing prior to a huge blizzard or hurricane.  Additionally those fleeing er....... charter guests will be required to pull their weight in terms of boat maintenance and chores.  Children will be accepted on a limited basis but there will be additional hefty KID fees and child labor will apply.  

*There is a Kickstarter project with stickers that say "I Voted And Then I Threw Up A Little".  I thought that was funny and sad at the same time and pretty much sums up this election for a lot of Americans.  I wanted to use that image but then thought I better not.  However, I think you can go out and buy those stickers.  Google it.

  1. Are you really sure you want disgruntled Trump supporters aboard if he loses? Just sayin'! ;-) (Feel free NOT to approve this comment, I just had to say it!)
