A Sailing We Did Go

Posted in General at 11:42 am by Ian

Took the boat out for the first time last weekend (was going to again this weekend, but I caught a cold, so Mike and Nick went out instead), and it was great.

We remembered to bring the spars, but we forgot a few lines.
We remembered extra rope, but we forgot to bring a knife.
But, the worst was
We remembered the beer, but we forgot the bottle opener.

    What sort of vessle are you cap’n’ing where you don’t have a bottle opener mounted to part of the boat?!

    I can’t believe I didn’t think of that.

    I thought you went to college? Everything’s a bottle opener:

    Augie, we had none of those things. I know the lighter trick and how to open off another bottle, but we had only one bottle. And I wasn’t about to open the bottle on the side of the boat that I just spent all this time refinishing and painting.
