1. An international armada of evil preppies from a John Waters film.
2. Couldn't the city fund just one 35' Sea Ray powerboat and some paintball guns for team Hunters Point?
3. It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in, and you've got the stock market beat.....

Sails with advertising all over them are decidedly less enchanting.

Agreed Bob. The sponsors should just pay for this out the goodness in their hearts.
