Super cool, I've been waiting to see pictures of yours before I order mine. Looks beautiful, I'm going to have to copy but order a tenor .

I am a retired Marine so this is really a big step for me buying a "sailor"! HA! (that just sounds wrong, doesn't it?) Thanks everybody for looking. These are some beautiful instruments. Will definitely learn to do a video so you can hear it too! Cannot wait to hear the other ones too!

Well, as a Jarhead, you've always been putting up w/swabbies jibes, knowing full well that they are just damn glad you are on the same side!

Check out the daily uke for some great sailor appropriate music, Like "What do you do with a drunken sailor" and Battle Hymn, or Anchors away! :)

Aww yeah! Son of a son of a sailor, Rod Stewarts Sailing, I'm sailing away. Bound for South Australia. I think a host of sailor songs should be put together for a Sailor uke album. Sail on Sailor Sail on.

Ok guys (and gals) A Marine can only tolerate so much. Just because I am going to play one doesn't mean I can sing about them! Ha! maybe page 159 of the daily ukulele should be a mandatory song to play!

So does the punchline "Sheep would be too obvious." mean anything to anyone here?
