By divine intervention or monkey's paw or just some genius marketing department work (bias fully acknowledged), the VIP area of yesterday's 4Knots Festival was the entire Peking ship, a four-mast barque with a steel hull the size of a football field. There weren't bathrooms on the boat, though, so breaking the seal was a dangerous proposition: the toilets were two Port-a-Potties aligned stage left; braving the line required commitment. Fortunately, some of you managed to fill the time by striking up conversations with attractive strangers. One of you even had such a nice flirtation that you posted a Missed Connection this morning at 8 about it. It's really cute!
