We're gonna need a bigger boat. I may have used it a few times to get a bigger boat

I have two for two obviously different reasons. One is always true..........the other not so much.

1. "Different Day, Different Ocean"
2. "It has a soft, dry ride"

"Never touch another man's woman, or his tie lines."

Also, I learned mechanics from an old salt.

For big jobs in tight spaces: "This job requires three strong men and a small boy"

After fighting with something stuck for some time and it finally came free he'd pick up the biggest wrench we had out and say "Well, we scared it loose."

BOAT break out another thousand..

When a guest cringes at the guest dock, I just laugh,, That is the least of my worries... Pull up to dock and the Ski boats are getting 10-20 gallons of gas for the lake.... and I am getting a couple hundred..

Two best days when owning a boat.

The day you buy it and the day you sell it.

Call me Ishmael. Some years ago—never mind how long precisely—having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking people’s hats off—then, I account it high time tozz get to sea as soon as I can. This is my substitute for pistol and ball. With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship. There is nothing surprising in this. If they but knew it, almost all men in their degree, some time or other, cherish very nearly the same feelings towards the ocean with me.

There was a great difference in boats, of course. For a long time I was on a boat that was so slow we used to forget what year it was we left port in.

Never approach a dock any faster than you can afford to hit it.

Green to green,
Red to red
All is well so go ahead.
When in danger or in doubt
Run in circles scream and shout.

If you don't like the way this vessel is operated,, please note the mistletoe under the Capt coat tails.

I'd rather be on the boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with the boat on the rocks.

They're are a lot of men running boats but not many boatmen.
When boats were wood and men were steel.
