Default Yacht Delivery

This was E-mailed to me today.
I am sure it is old but funny (not so funny for someone)

Anyone hear the real story?

Subject: Yacht Delivery

65' custom-built, motor yacht complete with staterooms, a state-of-the-art galley, G.P.S. system and radar for navigation, twin supercharged diesel engines, etc.

$1,200,000

Champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries with cream, and music dockside for the excited 'soon-to-be-owners' and a small group of friends.

$500.00

Two corporate representatives, boat, crane, and rigging complete with faulty turnbuckle.
$2,500/hour

(Note the guy on the stern!)

Watching your dreamboat nose dive into the harbor, accompanied by two corporate representatives just prior to 'inking' the final paperwork...

PRICELESS!


Open up the middle pic, check out the guy hanging on the stern.
