tarboard!" is without a doubt the most popular caption when any sort of collision situation is presented. Other favorites for this month's Caption Contest included: "Ready about! (Helm's alee!)," "Tacking in 3, 2, oh shit!" Reader Glen Williams wrote: "We're going to need a bigger boat (which is the correct caption for every sailing picture)."
