CF member teams with Grandparent to go sailing in winter storm while watching "Forrest Gump" Coast Guard finally gives up in frustration!

As I recently explained to some charter guests :

The first boat to arrive in an anchorage gets to choose what direction they want to point in. Admiralty law dictates that all subsequent arrivals must point in the same direction...although not still punishable by 20 lashes, boats breaking ranks are certainly frowned upon...

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

The brakes on my boat dont seem to be working. Anyone know a good mechanic that can fix them?

Re: Titles we really want to see in CF

My boat seems to always have a project in progress. Is it OK to board my neighbor's boat, untie the dock lines and raise the sails when I get the urge?
