Ha, that's pretty good. So, idpnd, what would 12 be for you?

For me, it would be "thumb in mouth, nappies firmly attached" with "Where's the EPIRB?"

Beaufort 12....

Eternal Father: The Navy Hymn

Lyrics by Reverend William Whiting and Music by Reverend John B. Dyke

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep,
Its own appointed limits keep.

Oh hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea! Amen.

Have only once seen 72knots at sea but my vocabulary was seriously lacking. Probably due to the weight in my pants
