Lazy Days of Summer. On a Boat.

“I’d rather be on a boat.” That’s my mantra for the summer of 2013, and my brilliant idea for a bumper sticker. For all of us New Yorkers jammed onto the subway, stuck on Broome Street getting into the Holland Tunnel, or walking through the eternal Midtown madness, having a tiny boat like this one would cure many of our daily urban annoyances that seem to worsen as the temperature rises. Out on the water it’s different–it’s just you, the seagulls, and an ocean breeze. Just remember to wave when you pass a boat of any size. It’s the unwritten rule of the high seas.
