Good one...

Here's another genius:
“I tell you, as one who has studied the whole situation, I don't think Hitler is a
fool - he is not going to challenge the British Empire”

David Lloyd George quotes (British Prime Minister. 1863-1945)

Fortunately the boat we rented had a motor in it You will definitely want this
feature on your sailboat too, because if you put up the sails, the boat tips
way over, and you could spill your beer. ~ Dave Barry

Makes me recall the Boy Scout Motto. "Be Prepared"

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. - Winston Churchill

The difference between adventure and adversity is attitude.

Cruising - Days of boredom interspersed with seconds of sheer terror.

Re: What is Your Favorite Quote?

Not just specific to boats, but relevant:

"...out there is a different world, older and greater and deeper by far than ours, a world which surrounds and sustains the little world of men as sea and sky surround and sustain a ship. The shock of the real. For a little while we are again able to see, as the child sees, a world of marvels. For a few moments we discover that nothing can be taken for granted, for if this ring of stone is marvelous then all which shaped it is marvelous, and our journey here on earth, able to see and touch and hear in the midst of tangible and mysterious things-in-themselves, is the most strange and daring of all adventures."--Edward Abbey-"Desert Solitaire"
