Stillraining - he can probably still grind away at that winch better than Alex no matter what he is using

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.

Gui-

You might want to put some padding on the aluminum handles if he's going keep taking them to bed. Last thing we need is the boy clonking himself in the head with the winch handle.
