Now, suppose Neptune came tromping aboard your boat . . . .
From Jim Howard's bible (2nd ed.) of offshore cruising (an X-mas gift, thanks!):
"Now suppose Neptune came tromping aboard your boat in a particularly bad mood one day and said, 'OK, Captain Oak, I'm tired of pandering to all you fiberglassed, electronic, polyester polliwogs. Starting right now we're going back to the good old days of wooden ships and iron men. Say goodbye to all of your high-tech goodies. From now on it's hand, reef, and steer for every man-jack among ya . . . Well, OK, you can keep one of your toys--but only one.'"
Now we know what Howard's answer to this question is, but my question to you all is: which one would YOU keep and why?
