Starting a voyage on a Friday.

Killing an albatross (Monty Python notwithstanding)

No green plants.

Keep a black cat healthy and happy (meaning fat and catered to) on board.

No whistling.

No women on board.

For fishing:

No bananas.

In the general way of going, you'd be right JSP, but I had a crackin' day on the water today (all day) and burned off LOTS of fuel and "had a Thanksgiving Dinner that couldn't be beat".

A 50 watt spotlight on the A frame pointed at the Helm's face and un-dimmable is required for night diving - so that the Helm's night vision is not completely burnt out they can twiddle the brightness of their nav screens down a touch...

When leaving harbour never go in a straight line, make sure your back end fishtails from side to side, this is totally deliberate and not because the boat cannot be kept in a straight line

Directly, or inversely proportional?
