Bizarre...

BTW, you can use tinyurl.com to convert that beastly URL into this:

Video: How to load a commercial dump truck onto a sailboat? — Autoblog

Doing this also prevents the autolinking engine from picking up words like rigging in a url and screwing up the link.

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 once heard a story about a shiny new car being delivered by sailboat, a 15' inflatable was lashed on top of it inflated. It rolled off the deck during a storm, and the inflatable was seen, swamping around the islands, with a car underneath it.
