I got excited, thinking there was some easy, concise method that we've all just been ignorant to all these years.

Then I read your response. I can't intuition or algorithm.

"Chimp battle"

Didn't know there was such a thing. All the other violent chimp encounters I have heard of were referred to as "attacks," which suggests that the person being attacked was a victim. Not this guy. Kid did BATTLE with a chimp. Hand to hand combat. And didn't die. Destined for greatness.

Dude I used to be a wood/tone guy until I saw the whole thing scientifically debunked.

It's all about the pickups. The same pickups in a '59 Les Paul would sound the same embedded in concrete.

It's still hard for me to get over. I'll try to find the link.

How commonplace is it to have tools and someone aboard with working knowledge of the specific mechanical equipment? Did you have anyone?

One reason I never took my fishing boat into the ocean is that if the engine stopped, I wouldn't know even the basics of how to diagnose the problem or get it running again if possible.

I would think especially on a crewed vessel in the open ocean far from shore, it would be a requirement to have a mechanic on board.
