Donít rename your boat.
Donít turn a hatch cover upside down
Donít whistle on the boat
Put a copper coin under the mast if you want profitable voyage such as fishing
Put a silver coin under the mast if you want a fast trip such as racing.

i think you aren't supposed to take tuna fish sandwiches when you fish either..although last time out sailing i had tuna and we had perfect conditions and great sailing (okay, minus the crappy asymm gybe that was purely my fault, and running aground in the channel)

It's the Mayo on the tuna sandwiches that makes people seasick, it isn't the tune, lol

Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about Sapperwhite has a spectacular aura about
A pig tattooed on one foot and a rooster tattooed on the other is said to help prevent drowning. Both animals don't swim well and want to get to shore faster.

A pig and and rooster on the thighs is said to prevent hunger because you will always have your bacon and eggs.

A nautical star tattooed on the forearm is said to aid in returning home. The idea beaing that it helped you navigate by the stars.

Zaldog,
Thank you! I have been trying to figure out why I can only catch catfish. Wheather I use bait, left overs, lures, a bobber, does not matter, all I can land is cat fish. I even caught a dead cat fish once with a lure. I saw the dead carcus floating by and warned it not to get hung up in my lure, but sure enough, that's exactly what happened. NO MORE BANANAS on this boat.
Tomorrow we fish again. I'll let you know what I catch.
Kathleen
aboard

A sail brings wind on the nose or calm.
Current is always against you.

Whistling

We were always admonished not to whistle because that could bring a storm. However when becalmed, we whistled all we could to bring us some wind.

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.
