Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

lord nelson -

ships and men, rot in port.


from the rules of the royal navy, 1755 -

on the strength of one link in the cable
dependeth the might of the chain.
who knows when thou mayest be tested?
so live that thou bearest the strain.


an arab saying -

the ship sails, and,
if allah wills,
the ship arrives.

Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

Learn to smile all the time.
Don't tell officials how to do their Job.
Never be in a hurry.
Carry more alcohol than you think you could possibly drink.
If you eat the local food, drink the local beer and you wont get food poisoning.

Never hold a piece on which you are cutting (or drilling or grinding...) with your hand (or other body part).

I reminded myself of this rule yesterday...my sore thumb will continue to remind me for a couple of weeks.

Planning is better seen as a strange habit of guessing what the future might reveal rather than an even stranger idea that you might somehow be able to influence future events in any major way

Talking Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

When asked about cruising I always say " Cruising is 90% boredom and 10% abject terror ". And of course any thing Capt.n Ron says is always true.

A pair of hands at work is infinitely more useful than thousands of hands clasped in prayer.

Re: Cruising's Little Instruction Book

Be kind to your equipment, or it will get stage fright and stop working the moment you focus your attention on it.
