If we invite JD to come out boating with us, the weather will go bad.

There is nothing--absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

If you drop a piece of bread that has peanut butter and jelly on it, it will always land with the P & J down.

There are only two boats worth owning...

1. One with a white hull, no flybridge, single engine, a forward leaning windshield, a steadying sail, a Bruce anchor on a hydraulic drum windlass with all line/no chain, a Xantex inverter, is trailerable, has an inflatable dinghy, and is kept in fresh water

or

2. All the others.

That while on a raft-up, your roomy fully equiped powerboat will be crammed with sailboaters telling you how little fuel they burn.

Everything on your boat is broken, you just don't know it yet.

There's only two kinds of boats - submarines and targets.
