Sailorman Sails across parking lot.
Photo Sails donated a custom 12’ dinghy sail to the people that made it all possible. Chuck Fitzgerald, owner of Sailorman in Fort Lauderdale, is one of the world’s nicest people.
A longtime contributor of Sea Seekers, Chuck has been having problems with the strict local government zoning afficianados. It seems, like in many towns, that temporary signage is frowned upon by the city.
The use of sandwich boards, banners signs, and even flags don’t meet the current codes and the only temporary attachment allowable is an American flag. How does one attract attention during those special event sales?
How about parking a dinghy in the middle of the parking lot next to a major intersection and hoisting a 150 square foot Photo Sail into the rigging. Try to find an ordinance against raising a sail on a registered boat. Thanks for everything Chuck. Good luck with “the man”.
