These things are big money-makers.

Cal28, eh? Usually it's a Cal25. You can find a beat-to-shit Cal25 for cheap, slap on a new 4-stroke outboard which cost more than the boat, bolt on some Home Depot patio furniture and you are off and running after you get a few permits.

The guests pay a fixed price. The alpha gay male drives the boat around inside protected harbors while the submissive gay partner serves up wines with hors d'œuvres. The guests get a yachting experience complete with Grey Poupon.

I saw my first one in Alamitos Bay, then shortly thereafter in Newport. They gotta have them in Marina Del Rey by now. Anywhere there is a protected harbor with interesting sites to see.

Cal 25's just won't die... I would however love to see people sitting in them while underway...
Oh they sit in them underway...

under power.

These never raise the sails ever. Not the demographic.

This marks the 5th separate one I've seen. I haven't seen where they advertise, but they do seem to get business.

Wow, just wow.

I always wondered what Cal 28s were good for.

Now that big flat foredeck makes sense.

Don't the boats need some kind of USCG Cert to carry paying passengers? And have some substantial liability insurance? I know they say "licensed captain" (six pak probably) but what about the boat??
