How true! A pretty good barometer on how the trip will be - if you're lucky enough to get a great old man, good chow and lots of good comrades you've sailed with before then life's gonna be a peach. Of course it goes the other way - an old man joins with you that you'd rather not be with, slow steaming to the gulf with lousy chow.
