Now captain, your mate's saying is one I understand. Good manners be damned...what the world needs is more irreverence. (and for those who are struggling, Don, Chris et al, and at the suggestion of Maren, I'll add a )

There is no reason to be nasty with each other.

Several posts have been deleted.

Sing to a sailor's courage, Sing while the elbows bend,
A ruby port your harbor, Raise three sheets to the wind.

In the end we are all here for the same reason, a shared desire to discuss cruising, cruising related topics and maybe beer... Let's focus on those things we share in common and leave the rest behind.
