Things to remember

When out there sailing, I find that there are a few things to always keep in mind even if you've been sailing forever:

Always remember that the boom is a deadly weapon waiting to ketch you off guard and relieve you of your boat and temporary conciousnous (Sorry spelling)

Always drop your keel, dagger board, center board, etc.. or things could get tough

AND NEVER URANATE INTO THE WIND. thats an important one.

If anyone has more to add to this list please do.

Drain plugs should be in before you back down the ramp.
Remember "Don't cross the beams!" in GhostBusters? In sailing, it's "Don't cross the lines!". Ropes seem to slide harmlessly over each other until the absolute worst time.

Remember to untie all dock lines before leaving the slip.

always remember to open the raw water intake seacock before starting your engine

By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.

Capn - you do that on the deck and you have to wash the whole boat!

never yell at the First Mate, she doesn't have to sleep, I'm sure of that.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
