Call me zuludaddy.

I’m here to field questions about the sea and seafaring, with specific regard to sailing and surfing. So many sibilants! All this alliteration alludes to alternate area of authority: language and linguistics.

Bona fides: did my doctoral work in linguistics, have been sailing since I was a wee lad, had held a 100-ton offshore captain’s license, sailed professionally.

Ready? GO!
