jackdale My favourite quote is the one in my signature, but it is from a book.

I am going against type on this one. But it is very descrpitive.

"You have shortened sail just a little, because you want more steadiness than you are going to get at this speed, the wind up to twenty-two, twenty-four knots, and it is late at night, and there are only two of you in the cockpit. You are moving at racing speed, parting the buttery sea as with a scalpel, and waters roar by, themselves exuberantly subdued by your powers to command your way through them. Triumphalism ... and the stars also seem to be singing together for joy."

While searching for an old Quote I read a while ago, I happened upon this old post...

I did find my old quote for my signature...

"It isn't that life ashore is distasteful to me. But life at sea is better."
