I'm one step ahead of you, BF! Already burned those words into the hull with a blow torch. Yard guy pretends to be "all upset," then he explains he already knows which side goes down. Pretends I'm stupid. He's good at playing pretend. Real good. The mast, he said, goes straight up in the air. I told you: These guys are good! When the mast is straight up in the air, the bottom is down, in the water. I've got to poop. Be right back.
