But my problem is that she IS the new improved model and she DOES like boats. She just thinks this one is kinda big and smelly...

new rug-follicly challenged then?
Edited receipts- surely not as if anyone would do that to his nearest and dearest,.As someone on here has said elsewhere his major worry is that when he dies his wife will sell his toys for what he told her he paid them for

I'm thinking a nice crane on the back of that baby for the rib

Stoo, I like the way you think, unfortunately women don't think, they emote. What a great time you could have cruising the lakes with that baby! One word of caution from a two boat owner (recently three) is that having multiple boats tend to detract from your actual boating time but other than that I see no problem with it... Tell her she can redecorate and it will make a great retirement home, maybe that'll work!

By the way,

All purchases such as this should be done prior to getting engaged/married!

It's always easier to get forgiveness than permission...

I think your strategic plan had one step out of place.

Easy - get it renamed after her. I know it's unluck to rename a boat but if it's the only way of getting it.

The crane on the back looks perfect for recovering your RIB......

Well.....I'm a girlie and I'm with your other half i'm afraid. Not sure I'd be too chuffed if Roger came home with one of those........then again i'd probably just use it as an excuse to go on an equivalent shopping spree of my own

If she's got any sense she'll let you buy it so that when you go out to play on it she can take her mates out on your rib Reckon she'd have more fun than you - you'd have it boats & outboards before you knew it

Hanging baskets and pretty curtains etc - turn it into a pretty country cottage - a British style one of course!!!

Or you could try this - even a woman would think this is cute!!!
