Ever rebuild the head at 11PM? I have. Parts everywhere, but got it reassembled and working by 1130. It's always something.
A boat is the definition of entropy.
Worst for me was being tied up in downtown Boston, having cocktails and getting ready to go to a nice dinner with six guests. You guessed it. Just before we left "it" happened.
They went on ahead (no pun intended), I changed, took apart, back together, another shower, change again and ninety minutes later caught up.
I guess it could have been worse. Did I mention that it was August and hot!
On a boat you can count on entropy being predictable. Hmm, so what does that make it then?
