Navigating the Seas in the Age of Sail - Woods Hole Historical Museum

Answer:  A CASE IN POINT

(Avast, ye swabbies!  A salty pun, indeed!  Compasses made sailing under overcast conditions – when you can’t see the sun, or the stars – much easier.  As long as you know which way is north, then you’ll know where you are, and which way you want to proceed.  Get the point?!  In any case, it made for a fun Friday Jumble!

All of today’s clue words are already on board with ralis95.  Three of the jumbles have come up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “taaeb” sometime before.  None of them stumped me this morning.  The answer letter layout was another twisty twelve letter jumble!  I don’t think it gave anything away.

I always enjoy the nautical cartoons, or any cartoon that takes place near the water.  I’m not sure if these characters are pirates, but there is a sinking sail ship on the horizon.  It’s possible that these guys had something to do with that.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR,

    Well, I was going to talk on why the Magnetic North and the Geographic North (True North) finally lined up exactly in Prime Meridian land,
    11/19, for the first time in 360 yrs.!!*… or go really old-school and chat on Polaris above all…
    maybe, why a ship has 32 pts. at 11.25° all around it ^…and end with why as a Licensed 2nd Mate, I preferred to sail as Able Body Seaman, Unlimited, Any Waters for the majority of my career??¿£… {Silly Boy}…but, alas, the laddies down in Jolly Greenwich said,
    “Forgit ’bout it”…….Tally Ho Ho Ho and a Merry…. (to early)

    Stay Blessed all…….k
