This saying comes from this nautical fact:
From the 16th century on until steam powered ships took over, British naval ships were rated as to the number of heavy cannon they carried. A ship of 100 or more guns was rated at #1 in line-of-battle ships. Ships that carried 90 to 98 guns were rated #2; Ships carrying 64 to 89 guns were rated #3; Ships carrying 50 to 60 guns were rated #4. Frigates carrying 20 to 48 guns were rated #5 and #6. This saying implies excellence.


WHAT IS THE SAYING?
"FIRST RATE"

Congratulations timbo!

and your winnings are:
When you're out in the boat fishing and you take your guitar along you'll find the fish will jump right into your boat smitten by your tender. haunting music.
