@bobsal u1553115,
Thanks for the offer but since Im in training I will refrain from lobsters altogether this trip. We leave tomorrow, I sure hope nothing weirder than's been going on of late happens while Im away.
got back from loading up the freezer and checking all the nav. equip.

Walter, looked it up and it's a wetted surface of 58 ft (whatethe square root is(Ill guess around 7.7 ) TIMES 1.34 we have whopping 10 k not really too bad , not a canal boat speed but not a trimaran either)

@Leadfoot,
have to stay US sides, RCMP and CG have covid areas set. We wont be going up into fundy at all and even Passamaquoddy is kinda limited. Cant go round East Head stopping at Lubec and then coming home sometime after we eat all the food and kill much of the beverage. We over provisioned by a long shot.

@farmerman,
Over provisioned? Then be sure to pull into a local NYC dock and set up a "Welcome To Autumn" gathering for us locals. We'll deplete your supplies quickly.


....although there may be that little issue of a 14 day quarantine/stopover to deal with....

@Sturgis,
we have enough coffee and cereal and dried camp meals (Kinda like nautical MRE's). The water- maker can desal and crank out about 3 gal of fresh clean water per hour so we store enough for showers and laundry nd COOKING so we are quite comfy in the liquidus department , every meal has been quite satifying .We even have a charcoal grille attached to the fantail. We didnt buy any charcoal and a starter can till e stopped off in the Hamptons. (I really dont like the Hamptons, or at least the harbor area we berthed at)

@izzythepush,
you been smokin somthing controlled this fin AM??
I have no idea of what youre getting at xcept some cockney ??

Is hampton a Brit term for a johnson?? what' the etymolgy of that one??

Wade Hampton was a Confederate General who served the CSA in a rather non-distinguished manner and lived on for a post war post as he was many times re-elected as a US Senator and made money as a kind of Reconstruction Profiteer.

H wa kind of a racit orick, but as far as a rhyme name??? that honors him . He should just be left on boot hill

@farmerman,
It’s fairly straight forward. Rhyming slang uses a two word phrase and the word that does not rhyme is the slang term that is used.

Hampton Wick, (an actual part of London) rhymes with prick so Hampton, the non rhyming part, becomes the slang term.

Like butcher’s hook, look as in ‘give us a butcher’s at that.’

Or rabbit and pork talk. As in she doesn’t half rabbit.
Chas and Dave wrote a song about it, called rabbit.

@farmerman,
Sometimes more than one rhyming phrase is used. This is taken to ridiculous lengths in the film Cockneys vs Zombies where Hamish explains why the walking dead are called Trafalgars.

Trafalgar Square fox and hare
Hairy Greek five day week
Weak and feeble pins and needle
Needle and stitch Abercrombie and Fitch
Abercrombie Zombie.

Simple.

@farmerman,
The yellow welly brigade are up in arms, both Southampton boat shows were cancelled on Friday, the day they were supposed to start. Local BBC news South Today did a twenty minute piece on how wonderful it was that the shows were still going on on Thursday.
