Using My Head

We are in for a good slug of rain today so we will head below decks to finish off a few details. I get to climb into the “engine room” where all the plumbing comes together behind the cook stove to get the fresh water system up and running. As I tell Mary, it is a bit of schooner yoga. Mary tells me it keeps me young. Grumble, grumble, sputter…says the captain. I often tell my crew that a Coast Guard license is not a ticket up the ladder but rather a ticket to the bilges. Nothing stops a cruise faster than a broken head. As our dear departed friend, the Major, always said about living in combat conditions, soldiers will go anywhere and do anything if they have a suitable place to relieve themselves. I can only take his word for it. My advice to guests and parents of little children, plan ahead and use the head before you head ashore.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
