American Waterways aren't a good source of crude oil.

I couldn't believe it. we were stuck hard in secnds. After trying ourselves for hours we clled sea tow. guess what? We were the 8th one that week. Even the operator admitted that the markers were screwed. Of course it didn't hurt his business any. why is we havebillions for Iraq but no money to upgrade OUR American waterways????

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.
