Sailing : the fine art of getting wet, getting cold and going nowhere fast while spending large amounts of money.

Boat : (1) a hole in the water into which money is poured.
(2) an acronym for Bring Out Another Thousand.

F(...)k!

Substitutes any other sailor's saying in tight quarters. It is also probably the one most commonly used.

Yes, I know it is rude, but you know language is a living thing. And I have never heard anybody say '...the sun red at dawn blahblah.." other than in the movies.
