I can read into your thankfulness for your day out there on the water. Nothing like it when it all comes together. Big game, small game, any game and just a great day out there taking it all in.

For when it runs out of fuel? Maybe proposed marine propulsion for New Green Deal. Hey, just trying to be comical, not political.
