Fun thread!

My first thought on reading the title was, "I remember that episode of 'Firefly'..."

Cows always face downwind so make great masthead indicators. The dingy has to be named 'Hind tit'. tender to Moovin on. I grew up cranking the separator for skim and cream (raw) so ruminate on that.

OK, but how do you get the cow up there?

1. Your mast man appears to have greying hair on my screen, so I question him being only 23.

2. Your cow has horns and would appear to be male. Ain't no way I'm cruising on that ship.

Re: Cruising with livestock -- any anchoring issues?

Back in the day when cows were immigrating to western Canada they used to get off the ship at certain ports. Hence the name ' Cattle Point' True. They were not wealthy and so traveled in steerage . Also true. Bene 505 As for getting them up the mast, just put the salt lick up there , they'll find it.
