Answer:  ALL HANDS ON DECK

(Of course it was.  But, at first I thought it might be ALL ABOVE BOARD, until I saw that I DIDN’T screw up on “versus”.  And, it was a four word answer and NOT a three word answer!  There were no new clue words today, but some of the jumblings were new.  The answer letter layout was very well done.  Nothing given away there.  Fine cartoon, with the classic sinking sailboat on the horizon.  First one in quite a while.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
