    That might qualify you as a brown water sailor.
    Nothin made me happier than a few fathoms under the keel.

    Not quite, we were blue-water boys (DESRON-2) but there were times when we had damn few fathoms under the keel while well north of the DMZ. I tip my hat to the brown-water river warriors, they were among the unsung heroes back in the day.

    DESRON 2, You ever have the priviledge of serving with ADM Jeremy Boorda? He woulda been a Yeoman 1C at that time.
    The Brown water Sailors have a long tradition of being ballsy fellows. I dont think I'd have the fortitude to go some of the places they sailed.
