    Love the lady “Layla”. What a ship.
    Either she is built to run or the metal is soo soft the breeze has pushed her topside back a bit.
    Squid is really tasty cooked Asian style. It is however an acquired taste. (What NO OYSTERS!!!!!!!)
    To mar3al2ju1.
    These are the other guys. Its like kickball or dodgeball. All the good kids are gone. This is your team.
    To the author.
    “A bit long of tooth” how to say short without saying it directly.
    You sir are a master of a much older language. Love it.

    “A bit long of tooth” refers to an old(er) person, not a short one. He was saying that the crew is on the older side as opposed to being young or the right side of middle age.

    Muzzles seem clean. Who cares what they look like as long as they can shoot.

    Looks like that ship has been through the wringer. Not an auspicious start for such an important enterprise. Which is the way I like it.

    And considering the time period the older ones are like 70 year olds today and they are probably in their 50’s and 60’s.

    Thanks, my dad had it wrong. It is what he told me it meant.

    But you know. He also got the quote to the book wrong. The captain is make the short sign with his hand and the crew is not all that old by the looks. 50/50 maybe?
    I still like oysters.

    Indeed! And he’s not the only one sporting gray hair… (But, you’re maybe responding to the hand gesture… I may have to change that.)

    @Dragon0131

    Oh, OK… You were responding to @veteran. I gotcha. I think maybe the origin of “long of tooth” is horses—but I’m not sure.

    @Veteran

    Yeah, I think that hand gesture is misleading. Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve made a note of that and will probably revise it with an eye toward a print version of the story.
