When I was young, we would often go out on my grandfather’s boat. It was a large boat, far larger than my father’s, so I felt safe on it even when the waves got pretty rough. Whenever we were moving from one harbor to the next, my grandma would make sure that I stayed in the cabin, where there was no risk of me falling off of the boat while it was running.
Sometimes in especially rough weather, the cabinets in the boat would open and the contents would escape. My grandfather usually had some ropes, fishing gear, and some Evinrude XD50 oil in the cabinets. Whenever, the cabinets would spill their contents it was my job to put everything back where it came from. I had to do this many times during our trips.
