From SailNet ...

"With all this talk about leaving your boat, let's not forget an important rule of thumb. You always want to stay with your boat until you are absolutely sure that your safety is in jeopardy. There have been many documented instances of sailors abandoning their boats, only to have the boat found days or even months later still floating just fine".

Uncouth hillbillies aren't easily embarrassed about much of anything but that would do it ...

I know I'm dumb - but, what on earth does "EWWPS" stand for?

I don't know that it's strictly British, I'm the last that would be accused of speaking the Queen's english, but yeah ... "OOOPS".
