I am both a pilot and a sailor. Not so long ago at an FBO, when signing in, they asked for instructions. Since I’d only used fuel from one tank my instructions were “top off the port tank.”
When I came back, I noticed that the tank was still half empty. I asked the FBO line guy what the deal was.
He said, “Sorry, sir, we couldn’t find your portable tank.”
True story. I no longer try to mix sailing and flying terms that much.
