    No silly. We'll be having lunch on the ship. We're taking her over. Bring your peg leg. And Chip needs to bring that shiny ball of light he's holding in his photo. We'll put him on the stearn when it gets dark. :D

    It appears to be greater than 135 degrees. (I hope my memory is serving me correctly here)

    JM wait till Jamz gets to enjoy the Navigation Rules class of one CAPT Douglas A. Hard.

    Pirates don't know what arcs are. :wiggle:

    Jamz is well acquainted with the good Captain. Ironic name huh? Jamz is an HS. (Hard Survivor). I think they give a ribbon for it.

    The USS Constitution....apparently not good for EVERYONE Naval officer.

    That's been in the Navy Times quite a bit recently (and by that I mean in the past two months).



    USCGC EAGLE....only ship worth talking about if the word "scuttle" is involved.
