Chicken...what's the fun of keeping her away from the $x,000,000 boats?

Let me think, what else do we need to do to get her ready??? Oh yes, I'll keep her away from boats we can't afford...

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.
