Rufuz was always a chicken when it came to riding in the boat...he cowered below...;-)

What a day that day was,

Didn’t worry ‘bout the marine fuzz,

The boat was registered, my boating license intact,

That day I could have cruised & cruised,

There is no feeling like it a cruise on water. Very nicely written piece, Ed.
