ThIS Week In NautilusTaking in USS Ponce, style guides & Big Blue Watery Roads.


“Such is the human race, often it seems a pity that Noah… didn’t miss the boat.” Mark Twain 

“Only the guy who isn’t rowing has time to rock the boat.” Jean-Paul Sartre

“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” Martin Luther King, Jr. 
“I’ve got a nautical theme Pashmina Afghan.” Lonely Island

“Never thought I’d be on a boat… it’s a big blue watery road” T-Pain

“The US Navy has developed a laser which it says can shoot down small aircraft such as drones.
Officials say the laser system will be deployed in 2014 aboard the USS Ponce.” What a boat name.
Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.   Warren Buffett

“Reaction – a boat which is going against the current but which does not prevent the river from flowing on.” Victor Hugo  
“I have pushed the boat out as far as I should in terms of taking on too many things. I’m getting older and I just could not take it any more. I am now monitoring myself very closely and I’m just trying not to get into that sort of state again.” Stephen Fry 
Many phrases are falsely claimed to be of a nautical origin. The list below are those with documentary evidence to support the claim of an association with the sea:
Between the Devil and the deep blue sea.
By and large
Close quarters
Give a wide berth
Hand over fist
Loose cannon
Shake a leg
Taken aback
The bitter end
Right… can you tell me which one of these is real and which one you’d rather be on?

I know my answer… oh no hang on Holy Ship is sold out in 2014 already. Absolutely gutted. Quick better…

Hi there guys! Solomon here… Hope you’re having a swell holiday… Kieran’s been feeding me well. Just the right amount and is not falling for my ‘please give me more food’ charm. He’s giving me lots of hugs but I think he needs a shower as the last one was a bit smelly. Even more smelly then my bottom. Hope your enjoying the sun and the rest of your holiday and I’ll see you on Sunday! Solomon xxxx  

“I’m riding on a dolphin, doing flips and shit

This dolphin’s splashing, getting everybody all wet

But this ain’t Seaworld, this is real as it gets

I’m on a boat, motherfucker, don’t you ever forget.”
