Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

Amateur Sea Stories at the Daily Kos

From the journal of a very minor player at the Daily Kos is a rehash, or shall I say ignorant embellishment, of an old urban legend of the sea - "the carrier and the lighthouse."

I ask you, who makes this sh*t up? For the current and former Sailors and Coast Guardsmen out there, feel free to "murder board" this one in the comments.
