does it matter which 6pak you use? are you pouring something like coors light into the drink to satisfy the bottom gods?
or is the bass ale or pilsner urquell for the pipefitter?
inquiring minds want to know. afterall, i'm all about pleasing the gods and creating good boat karma...
however..come to think about it, wouldn't pouring coors light be considered an insult...
"what do 'making love' in a canoe and coors light have in common?"*

I was more concerned about dropping a zinc in Lake Pontchartrain mud than an allen wrench, so I picked up one of those hanging baskets at the dollar store - the ones you put in your kitchen for fruits and veggies - and hang it from the propeller shaft.

Of course I've yet to drop a zinc - that will only happen if I don't use the basket

You really drove that boat up hard to get her onto shore like that. You
should have let the tide come up a bit first. (grin)

The tide is hardly measurable in Skagerrak (the waters between Norway, Denmark and Sweden) about 50 centimeters.

Anyway, Tjaldur sank in the Bay of Biscay the 30. november 2008.

Use your head, ram the wall till it falls.

Sorry to read of her demise. May she rest in peace. I hope her crew were spared.

The crew are in good shape. The boat sank because the boat that was towing her, lost he, because the wire broke. The weather and waves were too hard for towing.

More details on:

Tjaldurs reise til Karibbien - Bjoern.

"iGoogle" has a facility for translating the content of a website from any language too any other language. Although, the translations of metaphors in the text gives the most fascinating results.
