OK, I am sorry to say, but we must end our friendship here.

You can call me SHE, Bad Wine, Bad sailor, bad husband, make jokes about my boat not being a classic (yet), and all the stuff I put up....I take that.

BUT YOU WILL NEVER, EVER, SAY I WAS ON A POWER BOAT, OK???
Now appologise

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH....the horror... what a hideous photo...there's no sailboat in it...

I'm going to have nightmares of this huge face... that looks like he just chopped up his crew and cooked them for dinner...

Nice jacket and gloves though.

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.

You're the one making assumptions...he never said power boat... the chase boat could be a sailboat... couldn't it???

But wouldn't a sailboat have a hard time going slow enough to get Giu's boat in the picture? Especially a Catalina.

Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
