Newport Beach Boat Parade, Night 3 - the Sailboat Captain "Gets It"

Floating alongside the parade with bright rope-lights, I receive a fair amount of feedback from the boats that have microphones or bullhorns. The last two nights I got great props from the guy on the saiboat (the one with a Christmas tree theme), but tonight he went all-out. And I got pretty good tips because of it!
Here are clips from the two times he passed us:

He got a little more convincing the second time he saw us.

I have a feeling that guy was once a gondolier.

Merry Christmas, "sailboat guy".

Thanks for the tips!

We are knee deep in snow here and our little fishing lake froze already, so it's a bit suprising there is a three-day boat parade going on, at a latitude not much different from ours. California is totally lucky!
