Oh $deity, please don't! Wifey's been on a big "throw things away binge".
She keeps saying completely ridiculous things like:
"Do you *really* need 5 guitars, 6 amps, 4 keyboards, 12 chess sets, a
reel-to-reel, 2000 records, 4 boxes of comics, every video game console

So the big question -- can you fit your King Arthur table on this vessel?
