A Wrinckle In Time
From the "Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction" files, have a look at what batshit crazy Aussie "master shipwright" Rick Carr is selling over at the Alexander Yachts website. Dubbed "The Wrinkley [or Wrinckly, Wrinkly, or Wrinckle] Sailing System," Carr’s creation "makes your yacht go faster by making your rig totally adjustable to conditions." Near as we can tell, "Wrinkley" refers to taking sail slugs out of the mast, letting the main halyard down, and otherwise bagging the shit out of the main with the help of some crap that Carr sells at a big markup. But if you want your boat to "jump forward with acceleration power" you’re gonna have to pony up for the $25 licence [sic] fee – no free rides here! And don’t forget about the $25 Study Plan. Though you might also need the $125 detailed plans, which come with – wait for it – a ‘Kickin Wrinkley’ banner. BUT WAIT! For another 25$, they’ll throw in the Kickin Wrinkley DCD – apparently a 50$ value! We’re speechless.
At least 50% of your Kickin Wrinkley purchase goes to help kids. Go screw around on this hilarious site for a few minutes and we think you might just donate a few bucks for the entertainment value. Comments here and thanks to n00b ‘waverunner’ for the heads up.
