Then came the Tollycraft 26 powerboat, with what seemed like acres of room. Seperation at last, we thought. But no.
When I wanted to go forward, Marilynn was in the way. When Marilynn watned to go out to the back deck, I was blocking
the door. One of us couln't move without the other being affected. Thus was born the Law of the Boat.
The larger Tolly 37 should have put to rest the Law of the Boat. But it hasn't. One of us is still standing exactly
where the other wants to be. "Law of the Boat," we'll say, and we'll make room to get by. At least we realized it's
the boat's fault, not ours. Or maybe we're just clumsy.
