I think this is one is from Lat & Atts, but I'm sure it was cribbed from somewhere else.

I don't know who named them swells. There's nothing swell about them. They should have named them awfuls.

Anyone know who coined this old sailor's saying?
"Below 40 degrees South there is no law,
Below 50 degrees South there is no God"

Minimalist theory of boat maintenance: If it doesn't move and it should; spray it with WD40. If it moves and it shouldn't; wrap it in duct tape.

And the bright horizon calls! Many a thing will keep till the world's work is done, and youth is only a memory. When the old enchanter came to my door laden with dreams, I reached out with both hands. For I knew that he would not be lured with the gold that I might later offer, when age had come upon me.
