Inflammation of the bulkhead reminds me of your smile.

I've had ball-bearing shancroids for quite a little while.

I gave my keel to NSU that lovely night in June.

I ache for you my harbor, and I hope you get well soon.

 

[chorus]

My shaft warts, your seaweed,

My zebra muscle spores,

Your coral infestation, how I miss you more and more.

Your fouling itch,

My scum-line,

Our lovely nematodes.

At least we both were lying when we said the water was clear.

My boat sails faster on port tack. I'm thinking it is the rig tune. Any advice would be appreciated.

When the boat in question was pulled out of the water, the protest committee unanimously agreed to disqualify the boat under rule 53.

 

 

 

53 SKIN FRICTION

A boat shall not eject or release a substance, such as a polymer, or

have specially textured surfaces that could improve the character of

the flow of water inside the boundary layer.

since a canting keel is illegal in the class, a creative owner trained sealife to shift sides of the keel when he changed tacks to aid in righting movement.

I think it's just very large freshly dead anemones. I have seen impresively large examples in Puget Sound (but not dead). I have a wild guess that WHATEVER it is, it's going to smell unbeliveably bad very soon...
