Re: Hello from Ontario

Thanks! I already have a newbie blooper though! I understand it's supposed to be "Fair winds and following seas" not "falling" seas! Were you all just being nice & didn't blast me? Or did I sneak it by you . Both following & falling don't sound good though. Fair I get. I am guessing "following" means you have the sea behind you giving you momentum?
. . . If you aren't learning you're . . .

Re: Hello from Ontario

Though it was one of those new terms. Aloha and welcome aboard!
Falling seas would be ok as long as it meant they were calming down. Hate to have big swells from aft.
kind regards,
