What, try the boat, are you joking? What about that great storm the other week? She wasn't great in any weather then, she almost foundered at the quayside!
There I was aboard her, manning the pumps for twelve hours, without a drop of drink and only a chew of tobbacco. The waves were so high, that at one point we were up in the air, and the next staring down into Davy Jones locker! In the end I had to give the order to abandon ship. Now that she's been raised, she needs a complete refit, it will takes weeks. But she'll be good again, in any weather, great storms permitting!
Be seeing you
