(Boy, I really saw that one coming!  It’s a great pun though, and very appropriate.  I think most people like to enjoy the tranquility of being on the water, while there are those who just have to power through it at high speeds.  To each their own.

We have another new clue word today in “batten”.  Our good friend ralis95 will have to also add it to his world famous clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “muytm” having definitely been used before.  The answer was another swell ten letter jumble.  Cryptic enough, but I saw the final answer a nautical mile away.

Fine cartoon of boaters at a lake.  I like the blasé look on the guy next to the pontoon boat, talking to the hot shot in the speedboat.  I wonder if the hot shot will eventually grow up?  Maybe not.  Some people always seem to have that need for speed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hey Unc- Still smarting over Our Bills loss but Im optomistic for the future. Go YANKS…. I agree with you, I also saw this one coming. I didnt have to “Batten” down the hatches for this jumble storm. Could there be a sinking speedboat in the distance in a future cartoon? Jeff and David your thoughts?

    I had a sailing friend once called those high horsepower power boats ‘p*nis boats’, due to perceived self-image issues. 😀

    But like you, I got the answer right away, and all the clue words came easily as well.

    Techy dude, yes. Overseas, no. I’m more of a techy analyst, actually. 😀

    I was just noticing the @tir.com, and saw that they looked to be a tech company, out of Kuala Lumpur. — YUR
