A ship pulled into a harbor and everyone went ashore.

The first sailor off the boat went to the pub, and after his fifth ale began to YD so loudly they threw him in the drunk tank.

The second went to a fancy store to find a EAD for her lover, and hasn't decided yet.

The third picked a fight with a local - that was nearly his FIEL!

The fourth was trying to reinvent their look, and is still shopping for a AN.

The fifth loves animals, and won't leave without his newly adopted baby ETH.

The sixth went too close to a cliff and fell off the LMBRI.

The seventh loves TOCK so she's still watching footy.

The eighth was not rowdy but is quite large and had to be a EFF for the third!

After all this, their boat was left _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .
