Following Seas

"...Following Seas" discussion. The fuller quote is: "Fair winds and following seas and long may your big jib draw". It's a Navy benediction recently brought out into the current daylight by a TV series, NCSI, in which the actor, Mark Harmon, offers this appropriate valediction to another naval officer. This is probably the dead end of the search. The quote's origin has likely snapped off in history.
