Tough decision deciding whether to sacrifice booze or virgins to the sea gods. Couldn't find any virgins so we reluctantly went with booze. I hope it was worth it.

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.

I would not change the name of any ship that had remained afloat for me.
Somehow I think that's tempting ill-luck, I think.
