This looks like the rowboat my grandpa let me row around the lake in north Michigan. I called her the “Seaweed”, but she never had a record player in her.
The fact that you dubbed her “Seaweed” doesn’t give me much confidence in the seaworthy-ness of the vessel.
She was a hand built wooden rowboat painted green. Good memories.
The themes converge. Man, you are king ship on turntable island.
If you find one with a Sailor Babo in it too, I’m moving into a faraway yurt.
Sailor Babo in a vintage picture probably isn’t going to happen (without the help of Photoshop). I’ve got my hopes set on one that has the woman, the record player, and all the records neatly arranged on the bottom of the boat.

Aww… she’s wearing saddle shoes!
It’s a good thing the eBay seller didn’t know enough to mention that in the auction listing. I’d hate to go up against the collectors of saddle shoe pictures. They’re a crazy lot with deep pockets.
Wooed in rowboat
Woo woo woo your boat?
I’ve been trying for two days to come up with a clever response pun possibly involving the word “oar” for “or” or “knot” (as in a sailor’s knot) for “not”, but I can’t seem to put together anything good.
I like her. She had a great “back in my day” story for when the kids complained about how heavy their Walkman was.
Her own parents probably complained about having to haul their wind-up phonograph (with gigantic horn) all over the place.
