Wealthy German Tourist: “Ach, Mr Officer, you are from Amerika, jah?”

me: “yes sir, New England.”

Wealthy German Tourist: “Ach, Ve are sailingk now, yes? vich sails do we have set?”

Me: “yes, sir we are sailing. we have set the Mains’l, lower topsl’s, upper tops’ls, t’gallents, and some headsails as well as the [B]de-sail[/B], which will help us work a bit to windward.”

Wealthy German Tourist: “Ach! Very Goot! It is beautiful, jah?”

me: “yes, sir, it is quite a sight.”
