And I get boarded frequently at night or at east aproached in the lower Key's, they alway's ask you to maintain course and speed, we were boarded 100 miles south of the Caymans in the middle of night by a coast guard group stationed on a is navy destroyer, we still were asked to maintain course and speed. There are people actually out there traveling around in small sail boat's,I think 2bb should stand for 2 big balls, looking forward to part 2.
Yeah, we'll, we have a lot more miles than that and hardly anything. It has nothing to do with kids hanging upside down from to boom begging them, "hey... Board us, please! Is that a real gun? Do you have a boating license? Hey, how fast does your boat go? Can I come aboard? Do you burn a lot of gas? Hey, wanna see my Lego project? Hey!!! Where are you going? Board us!!! Please!!!!!"
