We took a fast tack to oblivion and now we are sitting here in every other boats shit air just waiting for the oxygen masks to drop out of the boom.

Our tactician couldn't pick a scab and the trimmer couldn't trim his own nose hairs. 

Hey skipper, we need to make a few changes. Whats that son? Everything under the Winddex!
