...or how sail ties magically appear on the main after he drops it.
...or how the vhf antenna spontaneously disconnects up at the masthead after the impact w/ the container.
...or why he needs a wrench to tighten the antenna fitting
...or how he takes the time to shave before raising his storm sails
...or how the sail on deck never seems to flap around in the middle of a storm
...or how he decides to disassemble the vhf on the deck rather than in the cockpit
...or how he tests the reassembled vhf without connecting it to the antenna
...or why the genoa was furled while he was working on the radio
...or how he doesn't seem to have a electric bilge pump
...or how he happens to have an almanac for celestial navigation data in his brand new unopened sextant box.
...or why he decided to do a tedious fiberglass hull repair rather than screw a cabinet door or something over the hole
...or how the impact never woke him up
...or how the impact even made a hole when the boat was barely even moving
...or why the life raft was stowed all the way forward in the cabin instead of on deck
...or why he didnt replace the cabin washboards in the storm
...or where was the EPIRB
...or why was he steering when he had the wind vane (in calm and in the storm)
...and where did he get that magical bosun's chair (do they really exist?)
...and don't even get me started about "This is an SOS call..."
...or how a west marine boat hook bent too easily... oh wait, strike that.
