<<Like I'm sailing upon the Bounty Main.>>

Hi Bill,

just in the cause of accuracy, that line makes no sense.
Surely that should be the `BOUNDING Main` 

Reference that old tune entitled The Walloping Window Blind
The chorus of which goes
`I`m off on the morning train
I`ll cross the `bounding main`
I`m off to my love with a boxing glove
Ten thousand miles away.

All the best to you both
