Much success upon its adventure, always two hands of water beneath its keel. Please have a good Wednesday.

A Scottish built ship I'm sure will do a good job.

I'm still laughing VP, it's amazing how one little letter can make the difference to a word hahahaha! But to be a little more serious I do wish the Sentinel good luck on it's mission.
