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."

We have most of a Carpenters eight-track tape, though it's missing about 60 feet that we've used up for tell tales on our shrouds. What else could we do with "Rainy Days and Mondays".

Of course, there's the concern about what dastardly black magic might occur on board if we were to make tell tales out of
"Blowing Like A Hurricane", "Bad Moon Rising",
"Stormy Weather",
"Rock Me Like A Hurricane,"
"Fire and Rain",
"The Eye of the Storm",
"There's Got to be a Morning After" (Poseidon Adventure),
"Yellow Submarine",
"Nearer My God to Thee",
any soundtracks from 1980s disaster movies,
and other songs of storm and disaster.
