Two Shirt Day
Showing boats in January is about as much fun as doing it in August. When the humidity peaks and the thermometer hits 90 you can only imagine what it is like on inside of a boat that has been baking on the hard. The same holds true for midwinter. Icy decks and ladders buried in snow are just two of the perks. When the Mid-Atlantic summer is in full swing and those languid SW breezes lazily turn the anemometer, we pull out the spare shirt that all FHY brokers keep close at hand. Nothing says professionalism quite like going from a showing to closing looking like you fell off the Eastport Bridge. If you have had the pleasure of closing a boat on an August afternoon and wondered how the FHY boys stay so crisp, it is all in the starch. This photo of “DORA” was taken last winter while showing a boat on Tilghman Island. This was a two shirt day for exactly the opposite reason. Could I have worn two shirts without looking homeless, I would have.
