The origin of Messing About In Sailboats

  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

Reminds me of a story I heard at the previous company I worked. The boss was at a trade show and a visitor to our stand asked him what a certain box did.

He said it was the HGFC unit and the visitor left happy.

No one had heard it called that so he was asked what the acronyms stood for. He said "Haven't Got a F-ing Clue".


I had the pleasure of sailing on the Dilligaff you refer to at Raritan YC a few years ago with its previous owner and it is one of the sweetest and well-maintained boats I have ever had the pleasure to board. Long may she continue to excel on the water and bring smiles to people's faces when her name is mentioned!
