Look behind you for what your wake has thrown up.
For there the past is brought into the present.
Neither of you can captain a ship of this size without throwing up more than you have already done from your previously very small vessels. Are you capable of containing your effluent?
Sailing into the wind requires tacking, something I have to admit you are both extremely well versed in but...
The future waits for those that correctly predict changes in the wind.
A strong ship requires one captain in order to take full advantage of a following wind.
Divided and conquered I predict this ship will sink while it attempts to gather sufficient information on how to sail with a favourable wind.
