See, all Portagee boats have big asses! (g)
One could hardly imagine a better host and guest combination than the Portagee and Wombat. The Wombat's keen interest in history and tradition married with the Portagee's encyclopedic knowledge of matters Portuguese, past and present. My only concern, if in a similar situation, would hardly be any notions of the Wombat desiring to meet the last bedraggled Marxist available locally than that I'd prove deficient in being able to answer a simple question of local history that I'd never thought about myself!
Good luck with the sailing weather!
