I suppose I must be one of the few men alive who can remember what life was
like in the American Navy of sailing ships. All those fine old ships have
sailed away into the Land of Dreams, mounting the swell like great birds.
No smoke, no vibration, no noise except the occassional slatting of a
reef point against its sail.
- Rear Admiral Daniel P. Mannix III The Old Navy
