The Man found a Boat Owner's "CHECK OFF LIST FOR H.M.S. F - - - " in a copy of Chapman Piloting Seamanship and Small Boat Handling he borrowed from the Marina's lending library.
He showed me the printed 3 x 5 card and we read it together.
I thought it looked pretty straight-forward; I am sure The Man has a similar list he goes through before he locks Nell up to come home.
But then we read:
___ Wedding Ring ON
Not sure what that is about. Perhaps it's a safety issue and he removes his wedding ring while onboard. Perhaps.
