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.

hellosailor OH yes the opined.....even though a young lady on a restored classic would have heavy leather sailing boots, such a thing is quite common with offshore cold weather sailors: I only wish I could afford a pair 300 to 400 dollars. Modern day pyrates can have (Johnny Depp) type sailing boots heavy tall leather with deck friendly soles also 300 to 400dollars and yes think about it running silently in the dark 3am YES maybe modern day pyrates snip snip the often OPINED pyrate cpt Conrad

What?
Please repeat in English.
I didn't hear anything about Johnny Depp being on board at the time of the incident.
