Recently, I sent this email message to several financial wizards:
"As I was sitting and watching Smith Mountain Lake today from my office window, I had an idea. A good humor boat!
On weekends hundreds of people go out on their docks to swim, boat, fish, sun, and sit. I think I can purchase a nice fishing boat in Peru that would be outfitted with refrigeration. I could then stock it with Good Humor Ice Cream Bars and float by all of the 500 miles of shoreline docks every weekend playing Good Humor music and drumming up tons of business. I might even be able to expand into pizzas and hot dogs. A McDonalds franchise could even be a possibility.
I know the whole concept could be franchised worldwide. Lake Victoria, Lake Mead, Lake Baikal would be prospects. Maybe even the Chesapeake Bay. Then rivers and oceans."
The response was overwhelming:
What a great idea!!! Perfect for an IPO (Initial Public Offering).
Sell wine, videos, party hats, lingerie, beer, fishing tackle, bikinis...and rent videos.
I want to invest now!
Where shall I send my check?
With this kind of encouragement, how could I help but go ahead with the idea? I can motor around Smith Mountain Lake during the summer. In winter I will then take my boat to the Caribbean, pull up alongside cruise ships and sell wooden carvings to tourists.
As you read this, I am sure the wheels are turning in your heads and you are already dreaming up new ideas for making megabucks at sea. Before you go too far, remember that I am making this offering to only a select group and bear in mind that I have already taking steps to protect through international copyrights and patents. This will include the ideas listed above and future plans including but not limited to:
- Sail through fast food restaurants

- Self Service Fueling Stations at sea
- Boat washers at sea
- Rental locations for all major Franchises including 7-11 stores, Radio Shack, Blockbuster Video, Burger King, Pizza Hut, etc.
