OK...what about asking the island to move near the boat???? surelly that would help....some time ago, there are records of a guy called Mohamed that tried to move a mountain...as I was told......

In that case we should suggest Goldingds, to travel in SD's boom, (not his boat) and ask someone to hit the boom brake pedal real hard....that should catapult him to a more reasonable question land.

Are we talking Chinese????

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.
