While these happened on a sailboat, IMHO, these belong more in the sacrifices to the sea gods thread than as bone head sailing moves.

Well, at least I haven't lost anything else since then!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
