You look in the bilge for intellect? You have a better chance of finding a pearl in a bowl of Quaker Oatmeal.

There's a lot of good stuff in the bilge but sometimes hard to find. :(

I would've posted it in "People and Places" but the last time I did something like that Ian from Hyannis complained that it wasn't boat oriented. :D

Yea he did that to me too,:rolleyes: but Ben Franklin should not be in the bilge either.;) But I must say the person you are referring to is the best when it comes to seamanship etc.:D
