It's either broke, or will be broke. Just a question of when.

If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

 

Obvious, I would have thought.

It's an intolerable challenge to the collective manhood.

You (and I for that matter) would be out of work. Shit breaking provides for a nice break from fairing bottoms.

It ain't broke...

 

 

There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know.

 

There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things we now know we don't know.

 

But there are also unknown unknowns - there are things we do not know we don't know.

 

 

This sums up why so many of us still love & hate boats after all these years. It also explains why sailing never gets boring.
