Nissan Bonavista Commercial Transcript

Beyond the debate about the accent of the actor in Nissan's Bonavista commercial, and the subtitles to explain what he is saying, there is also the question of what the guy is saying. There is a line in there that I cannot figure out. I am from Notre Dame Bay and I have a Newfoundland accent (a real one, not an over-the-top, fake one done by an actor from Cape Breton), but I don't have a clue what he is saying. The line is: "If that don't put a ...'Gus in your spinaker'???...I don't know what would" (subtitles: "It's cool"). I looked for a transcript online but could not find one. Could someone tell me what he says?

Also, Adpunch has featured Nissan's controversial commercial but there are no comments about their discussion of it (unlike at RJ's where there are close to 100).

I think it's "if that don't put a gust in your spinnaker..." Which is kind of like ... what ... wind in your sails? Don't ask me, I'm a hardcore townie.
