In which we pay homage to a big influence…

Maybe you’re old enough to remember this…

Then again, maybe not.

That said, it is worth watching if only to focus your mind on the importance of vehicle choice where budgetary concerns are an important part of the mix. The VW was all about being able to drive on a sustainably small budget… It didn’t cost a lot, didn’t use much fuel, was easy to maintain, and got you where you wanted to go in a reliable manner.

Boat designers and builders could learn a whole lot from checking out old VW print and video ads on a lot of levels… Since I don’t expect them to anytime soon, if you want a sustainable budget cruising sailboat you’re just going to have to sort it out yourself and, hopefully just maybe, we’ll be able to lend a hand from time to time and help you join the ranks of the two-pennies-a-mile cruising club.
