Perfect storm

To all sailors, be you God-fearing or not, here''s a saying I have engraved on a plaque and mounted prominently in the cabin. "The sea is a fickle mistress that does not coddle fools."

I was in the Navy for six years. The tin-can I was on (with a 47'' beam) was nearly broached twice. Once in the North Sea, and once in the (supposedly calm) Mediterranean.

Unless you boat is about the size of modern aircraft-carrier, it won''t be able to handle what mother nature can throw her way.
