My original post in 2015:
“You call that a yacht‽”
Emma was expecting something a little more classy to elope in.
Somebody call an Uber?

No problem. Just ask him to row to San Francisco to buy a pair.
“Boat is boat,…”
“It’s also a flotation device!”
“Excuse me sir, by chance are you from Nantucket?”
" I’ll come back in a couple of hours when the tide comes in some more."
I don’t think Lars is going to be able to satisfy Ingeborg’s nautical fantasy with his little dinghy.
“So I think maybe I need to explain my meaning when I said ’It’s not the size of the boat, it’s the motion of the ocean’….”
“No, ma’am, we’re going boating. You shouldn’t have dressed for swimming.”
“Is that an oar or are you really happy to see me?”
“… and you pull this right oar to turn to your left. Got it? Good! Because those are the only driving instructions you are getting from me!”
Likely Lake Siljan – Zorn lived in Mora which is on its northwestern corner. On the eastern bank is Nusnas, home of Sweden’s iconic red wooden horses.

Other versions has strip coloration image.
Again, a larger strip image is shown by merely clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s THROWBACK THURSDAY: MASTERPIECE #1224 (6/1/15) (May 31, 2023) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment. I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with my comment pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. So far, 4 works by this artist have been used here (6 times total, including a repeat, and now this Throwback Thursday), the June 1, 2015, strip being its first use. GoComics has deactivated the hyperlinks and removed the new lines in my comment and reply there; but, perhaps the text remains informative. The April 7, 2023, strip has the prior by him.
