|A Boat For Every Purpose.|
Larry Dunn, president
of Royal Denship USA, is a wise man (sometimes he’s a wise guy, but
that’s another story). Dunn has been around boats and boaters long
enough to have a collection of great sea stories and is prone to glibly
uttering boating truths without even knowing he has said something profound.
During a conversation about different boats that we would like to own,
he once said, “Boats are like golf clubs—different boats are
needed for different purposes.” His point was that just as you would
not attempt a long drive with a putter, you also would not try to cross
the ocean in an express cruiser or tie up to some waterfront watering
hole with a trawler.
