Nope, different language, different "rools"

"ie" in German = eeee as in "wheee!".

"ei" in German = eye, ai, that sort of sound, as in "Lorelei".

Re: How to Conjugate "Heave-To"

SILLY NAUTICAL SPELLINGS

Tacho
Tranny
Genny (Why not just spell genoa? Same number of letters.)
Or short for Generator (also silly)
Spinny

Heal - to feel better

Heel - the back of your shoe or boat tilt


That dead horse will never heal if you don’t stop hitting it on its heels with that stick.

Windows
Kitchen
Bathroom

Walls vs. bulkheads

Birth vs berth

Bildge vs bilge

Bilge vs bilge pump

Keal vs. keel

Bail and bale: two separate thingies.

yanny instead of Yanmar – like genoa, same # of letters

seams and seems

weather is good whether or not you’re out on your boat (wheather???)

I was through it all, so I threw her out!

Their boats were way over there, so they’re in bad luck.

This is no dought why…

Re: How to Conjugate "Heave-To"

Punctuation also matters:

A teacher writes on a chalkboard the sentence: "A woman without her man is nothing"
The teacher then asks the boys to punctuate it properly, and they all write:
"A woman, without her man, is nothing"
The teacher asks the girls to punctuate it and they write:
“A woman, without her, man is nothing.”

***

A panda walks into a café. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.
"Why?" asks the confused waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.
"I’m a panda," he says at the door. "Look it up."
The waiter turns to the relevant entry and, sure enough, finds an explanation.
"Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves."

Good one Gord! I like Pandas, they seem peaceful most of the time.
