    Two vacations Michmi will never take.

    1. A trip for any length of time to any place in Mexico.
    2. A cruise.

    No thank you!

    Well at least it is just propulsion problems!

    Those poor cruisers could be all suffering from a ship-born illness, or one of them could be overboard!

    I will take propulsion problems any time!

    Or stuffed toilets or sea sick passengers. I went on a cruise once in 8-10 ft seas, and everyone was sick. It was so gross. That is one cruise I lost weight instead of gaining.

    Remember this one?

After further review by technical experts, we have confirmed the full extent of the damage to the motor.

    I went on a cruise, once. My then-boyfriend had won it in a drawing at work, so it was totally free...when I got home, I *still* wanted my money back.
