Fit for any type of sea voyage

My beautiful wife Natalie met me here in Norway on Saturday. We visited the Viking Ship Museum. One of the displays said:

Et skip som må øses 3 ganger på 2 døgn er sjødyktig til all slags ferd.

which translates as:

A ship that has to be bailed 3 times in 2 days is fit for any type of sea voyage.

I just love that.
