Re: Multi-Day Offshores: The Elephant In The Salon
I think I’ve figured out the great divide that separates people who attest to the stark raving horrors of an ocean passage and the ones who do not. If you spell the common area of a boat a “salon”, perhaps you are more familiar with beauty shops so naturally, you would anticipate an ocean passage with a certain amount of fear and trepidation. On the other hand, if spell it “saloon” you are most likely more familiar with the parts of a boat (and dockside drinking establishments for that matter) and thus not so fearful of the briny deep.
