Better a long cold swim back to the dock than you turn yourself into boat confetti later... I bet you haven't forgotten that lesson, and won't make that mistake again.

Good thing the water wasn't freezing cause it was a long swim back to the dock.

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.
