Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

She's pretty and she only burns 456 gallons/hour. So Eco-Friendly. Maybe I should paint it green instead. Don't you know when they roll that baby out the doors they have a WHOLE COUNTRY of environmental groups chaining themselves around that one.

Water gets i!!! DUHH

Ohh, those drills, I was seeing a drill like an emergency drill. Sorry.

For us foreigners, the hole making drills are drill bits!!

CD, actually that reminded me of a story that happened with us in 2003.

At that time we had a slower boat, and we entered a race, the crew was just me, my wife and my son, then 5 or 6.
The race was from Lisbon to Cascais, with free route.

Some went to sea and made good speeds, some decided to stay near the shore and actually stopped. (I was one of those, simply because the day before I had gone sailing there and the wind was stronger along the coast, so I figured it would not change, well it did!!)

Anyway, half way down the race, we were stopped due to lack of wind. Then slowly, a Bavaria 36, started approaching. Every time he got closer and closer.

He passed a lot of people, and finished 5th or 6th, to everyone's surprise.

When he passed, I could clearly hear his engine going, and the spiting of water from his exhaust!! At the prize dinner, we mentioned this feat, and his answer was that he was only charging the batteries, and it was not to his fault that someone in the crew, had "accidenatly" put his engine in gear!!

CD could make good speed if it weren’t for the TANKER he has to tow for fuel.
