Yachting Translations Vol II: Deep Cuts

You hear: “Who the fuck tracked muddy footprints up the passerelle last night?”

Spoken by: The bosun

Means: “I have very little control over anything in my life right now and I am trying to not let that get to me. One of the ways I do this is by working very very hard at keeping this boat very very clean. And one of you shitheads went out and had a good old time and came back and made a mess while I was sleeping and dreaming of Tahitian green rooms. Surfing. Barreling waves. Stay with me. Anyway I literally feel like you walked on my face and I want to know which of you did it so I can be mad at something in particular and exert some control in one of the few areas I am allowed to. Your feet.
