"Six Months In A Leaky Boat" as written by and Nigel Griggs Eddie Rayner....
When I was a young boy
I wanted to sail around the world
That's the life for me, living on the sea
Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe

The lust of a pioneer, will acknowledge
No frontier
I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky
Lightning flash, tempers flare

'Round the horn if you dare
I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Lucky just to keep afloat

Aotearoa, rugged individual
Glisten like a pearl
At the bottom of the world
The tyranny of distance

Didn't stop the cavalier
So why should it stop me
I'll conquer and stay free
Ah c'mon all you lads

Let's forget and forgive
There's a world to explore
Tales to tell back on shore
I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Six months in a leaky boat

Ship-wrecked love can be cruel
Don't be fooled by her kind
There's a wind in my sails
Will protect and prevail

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Nothing to it leaky boat

    General Commentit seems like it could be about an unstable relationship hence the name "Six Months In A Leaky Boat" you know? Trouble.
    He saying "Lucky just to keep afloat"because their relationship is very volatile relationship and he's lucky to good.
    Especially the last bit of the song "Ship-wrecked love can be cruel" He's saying that women in general seem one way but there also another way like. "Don't be fooled by her kind"
    But thats only a little bit of the song, it could be about something else completely different.

    General Commentits a cover of the band split enz... he used "The tyranny of distance didn't stop the cavalier" to get the title of an album, and he admires the band.
