God Rest Ye Gentle Mariner
 
God rest ye gentle mariner
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that the yacht you love
Will seem too small one day
You thought it was quite comfortable
When you were on the bay

Now itís cramped: full of all your sailing ****, sailing ****
Thereís no spare room for any more to fit

When you were young and starting out
The boat was big enough
You wondered at the storage space
For all your sailing stuff
You even had a cosy berth
To lie when it got rough

Now itís cramped: full of all your sailing ****, sailing ****
Thereís no spare room for any more to fit

So now youíre more experienced
Your needs have grown apace
For Ďlectronics and galley toys
Youíll never find a place
Thereís no room for the crew or you
To splice the old mainbrace

Now itís cramped: full of all your sailing ****, sailing ****
Thereís no spare room for any more to fit

Back pages of the sailing mags
Are rumpled and abused
The broker sites and craigslist links
Are bookmarked and well used
Your banker and investment guy
Are calling you confused

Now itís cramped: full of all your sailing ****, sailing ****
Thereís no spare room for any more to fit

It comes to pass eventually
You buy another boat
Itís bigger than the one before
But ere you start to gloat
Youíll fill it up with more new crap
Than any boat afloat

Ďtill itís cramped: full of all your sailing ****, sailing ****
With no spare room for any more to fit

I just read through your new boat thread - Big ups and congratulations BTW! - and hope that this doesn't hold true for you.

Merry Christmas and fair winds.
