Love was in the salty air on the eve of Valentine's Day, as one California man incorporated a surprise "sailboat with a message" into his romantic proposal.
Jeremy Jennings popped the question to his girlfriend of six years, April Wayne, at the Oceanside Pier. But instead of simply asking her to marry him, he enlisted the help of Capt. Steve Ford, a sailboat and some painter's tape.
Ford, a captain with Sunset Sail Yacht Charters, sailed by the pier around 5:30 p.m., to catch the sunset. Jennings had previously written the words "April Will U Marry Me" in painter's tape on the sails.
