"Well, since we're not going anywhere for at least 6 hrs, let's clean the bilges. COMMENCE FIELD DAY!!"*




*This one was lifted from the CO of USS Sam Houston (SSBN-609) after running his former SSBN (converted to slow approach) aground on Fox Island, WA in April of 1988 after contradicting and overriding his navigator and entire maneuvering party. They waited 10 hrs for the tide and tugs to pull them off the mud, but the bilges were clean by the time they were done.

Did the earth move for you too honey?


Its a rental


Get the bottom painted before the tide returns.


They are faster when heeled.


Sail boats prefer being ‘on their lines’.


Could you guys please check that spring line?


Swim ladder’s too short.


Perfect! Better angle for the solar panels.


But consensus said water levels were going up.

We figured around hear-'bouts too but didn't think there was enough tide. Is there a bore here?
