Chip is a family friend, very fun loving, and a die-hard boater. His wife Karen, isn't quite as avid a boater as Chip, and their 15 year old daughter Kelly doesn't really care one way or another about boats. About 5 years ago they bought a 33 foot sailboat which they use for cruising in the New England area. Early on, Chip bought an autopilot for the sailboat so that they wouldn't have to keep the tiller manned at all times. Kelly affectionately named the autopilot "Otis", and the name has stuck ever since. More recently Chip purchased a device known as a "life sling", which can be used to pull people out of the water if they fall overboard. One evening Chip was trying to explain to Karen how to use the life sling. Kelly was reading a book nearby and didn't appear to be paying any attention to her parents. Karen didn't seem to be too interested in learning how to use the life sling, which was frustrating Chip. He finally asked her, "Well then what will you do if I'm the one who falls overboard some day?". Kelly, without even looking up from her book, replied, "Drive on, Otis!".
