Re: A sailing story thread - feel free to add

After reading all this malarkey, he gave the boat away, flew home on a jet, took off hiking into the woods with a canoe paddle over one shoulder and when he was asked what was that funny looking stick he carrying, he built his cabin and lived happily ever after.....?

And well may you ask "Why are they called The WheretheF*^kareWe Tribe.."
It's because the land they live in has grass 4ft high... being only 3ft the only way you know they are around is when a head pops up every now and then screaming their famous chant.....

Re: A sailing story thread - feel free to add

she thinks, "It's time to search out that Southern Cross I've heard so much about before it snows!"

Since the Captain was snoring down below she consulted the charts and set a course for warmer parts. With the sails set, a stiff breeze across the beam and a gentle sea she thought, "What could possibly go wrong?"

She was a stow away on the boat... and had been force into being the Galley slave until some knockout drops somehow ended up in the captain's coffee. Thus she assumed command of the sailboat
