You know Roger, I always wondered why we were always so wet whenever we were on the boat. Thanks for clearing that up.
We do indeed have a halon system so this makes sense. Not sure how it was hooked up or if it ever was.
BTW on a completely side topic, my understanding about using "a" or "an" before a word starting with the letter "h" (or any word that starts with a vowel sound) is not based on the letter itself but on the pronunciation of the word. Here is an explanation I found online (and since it is online it must
be true LOL) - "People seem to ask most often about words that start with the letters h and u because sometimes these words start with vowel sounds and sometimes they start with consonant sounds. For example, it is a historic monument because historic starts with an h sound, but it is an honorable fellow because honorable starts with an o sound. Similarly, it is a Utopian idea, but an unfair world."
Of course I always thought halon starts with an "h" sound; perchance it is pronounced "A-lon"? Wow - and the letter "h" actually starts with an "a" sound. English really is messed up, isn't it?
