You're a fine story teller.

Time to look deep into Jimmy Buffett's library of songs.

Nothing else will do.

You are a skilled writer.

Sounds like a cool adventure. Where are you docking next? China? Japan?

Spent 17 of my 20 years in the Navy making that crossing and never tired of it. And never tire of hearing about it from other adventurous souls.

Oh yeah, and I survived my Shellback initiation back in the 70's and even made Golden Shellback in 1988 (crossing the equator and the International Dateline simultaneously). You're gonna love Australia!

It iz zee most excellent read!

Excellent story.

To bad you missed the shellback initiation. It can be fun, although it seemed like more after I was done than when I was actually doing it. Fwiw, I did Shellback and Bluenose (crossing the artic circle) on the same trip.

Btw, in nautical terminology, its a line, not a rope. :)

After that long at sea, I would say that Male Docking is next.

Seriously, great writing - makes me want to go read "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" again, haven't read that since HS many years ago.

Aye!
