OK for you guys with a lid, but useless with 30knots of breeze passing the lugholes.
IMHO, any openboat coming into port producing 'toons' at on any level paints a picture.
A Gecko and earphones maybe on a long passage?
For me, I like to push that throttle lever to sublimity, and listen to the sweet sculptural rhythms of six injected pistons playing in perfect harmony and as the sound makes its way across the deck minglin' with the sounds of the wind and the sea you know, and all of a sudden I'm often overcome by a feelin' of brief mortality
Cause I'm gettin' on in the world, comin' up on fifty-one years. Fifty-one stoney grey steps towards the grave, you know, the box awaits its grisly load.
