Second wave?  We're either on our fifth wave or still on the first.

Lol. My "yacht" is my primary residence and I still can't write it off, except as a business expense for the charter company I work(before the plague) it for.

Also, there are farkers with used cars with a higher resale value so...

I need to get adopted by rich people. Isn't there an agency or something?

EvilEgg: Second wave?  We're either on our fifth wave or still on the first.

//You will have to come to shore before this is all over


I spent three months at a mooring in a wildlife refuge after they cancelled our tourist season. Shore became optional and those hyper yacht owners can stay afloat for a long time if they're willing to stay put and not run their generators much (hint: they aren't).

They likely got air lifted to their chateaux, but don't advertise it. Their crews are who you should pity.

I missed my fam, but the water was great, and very peaceful. Plenty of rain to catch and drink too. Too much rain on a couple occasions.

I got sick of eating sprouts. But I did have line of sight on a cell tower some miles away, so that was cool. Can't live without Fark amirite?

Hence why they need tax cuts to distance themselves from us dirty peasants.

You know, I can almost feel some sympathy for them.
Not quite, but almost.

"What's more, boat ownership among first-time buyers comprised 31% of new boat sales through September, making up the majority (90%) of 2020's uptick in sales, according to boating news trade publication Trade Only Today."

/ Guess Jack_O Jr. and I will be sitting down by the boat ramp this summer with some camp chairs and a cooler... should be a hell of a show.

Weird segue. Guy escaping all of the rubes germy germs on his $2 million yacht. BTW, powerboat sales are up, you get that bass tracker?

I came to this thread hoping to post pictures of Andy Bernard suffering hilariously on his boat but Google didn't have any aside from the one where they're video chatting with him.  Did Ed Helms bleach it off the internet or something?

Some people might say you are wildly rich.

That's how I'm thinking. I was trying to get worked up into hating on the rich, then saw the quote you cited. They're not just being virus safe but also avoiding domestic strife. I always encourage that. And if you can afford it, no price is too high to pay.

Trivially for six months.

They'll run out of diesel for their farking air conditioner and deep freezer first.

Of course their crews will be in the equivalent of pasta, beans and rice in no time.

Yup. Depends on where you are/how much you'll spend.

Also, how big your hyper yacht is. You may be limited where you can tie up to take on fuel.

That's not a yacht. *This* is a yacht... (Larry Ellison, Oracle). These, of course, are the ones that I need to put on my Captain Nemo uniform, and pull the Natilus out of mothball for....
