Oh, so you don't have a real winter... just a bit of slightly cooler weather...

Anyway, I am not set on that - gotta go through this winter first.

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.
