I've done a fair amount of sailing, but in small boats. Currently have a 17' cat and sail with a Hobie fleet in NM. Hitch the cat behind my streamer and I am my own parade.
NM has the highest per capita number of pleasure boats in the US.
Landlubber: Old redition of land lover. Derogatory slang for persons unfamiliar with boats and uncomfortable around them. Modern brain research has indicated that the speech defect which leads individuals to substitute b for v may be a symptom of a hitherto unrecognized form of brain damage associated with inner ear dislocations caused by long periods of pitching, rolling, rocking and swaying.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.
