It was in Secret Cove, BC, that I saw, for the first time, the end-all and be-all for boaters. It was an almost metaphysical moment of revelation. I gazed in awe at this item, and coveted it in an almost biblical sense. It was a man heading out in his dinghy
, in the fading twilight, heading for his boat
which was anchored 100 yards away.
It was a hat. Not just any hat, mind, but a hat which, when switched on, displayed a COMPLETE SET OF NAVIGATION
LIGHTS. I mean, the red, green, white, all spaced exactly right. I watched as the dinghy
left the dock
and proceeded towards the larger vessel, proudly wearing his navi-hat. There can be no other item more coveted than this headgear, nay nothing.
You are most welcome
