    Do you have any favorite quotes? My all time favorite has to be this quote from Jack London:

    The proper function of man is to LIVE, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.

    Most of what I can come up with are song lyrics. But something boat-related would be:

    Only approach something as fast as you're willing to hit it.

    Hanging above my old high school football coaches office door...I'm a firm believer in luck but it seems the harder I try the better luck I have (Keith Nelson from Buckcherry actually mentioned this in a youtube video he did recently. We were teammates. He was a lineman and I was a back). Also hanging in the locker room...'winners never quit and quitters never win'. We were underdogs and won the championship my jr year
