This could be like a sailors experiment....scientific research. Whats it feel like to do it and what it's like watching a dude do it.

I'm looking at this weekend. We'd have to go offshore a good ways. Saturday not looking so good for the test. 3 to 5' occasional 6'. 6 to 8 with occasional 10 in gulf and 7 seconds. Sunday better with 2 to 4 feet with occasional seas to 5 feet along the coast and 4 to 6 feet with occasional seas to 8 feet in the Gulf Stream. We'll be in the Riva so not sure where the best place for him to do it would be. At least he'll have help to make sure he doesn't go overboard.

Yep, Houston, we have a plan. He just doesn't know it yet.
Looks like you have a plan... Just check the weather one more time for a cold front!

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

I never pee over the side! I have a head on the boat that seems designed for peeing into

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

Darn, I break all the rules.

Pee over the side, pee standing up in the head. Used buckets, bottles, cups too. When it's time to go, it's time to go.

I have come up on deck (at anchor) to see a friend's wife peeing over the side. She broke three rules in one "go", peeing over the side, no lifejacket and sitting on a lifeline (while hanging on a shroud). Must have been trained by Boatie!

4 rules she broke.
She got seen!

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

When the fish stop peeing in the water, I will stop, too.

Only if there is a good sunset or something else worth walking out there for. Otherwise, I pee in the yard. Or pool? Never! I get out and pee in the bushes.
I spent an entire summer on a boat with a swim platform and never once used the head. Good tidal flow is essential when anchored. Sea dumps seem far more civilized than marine toilets. Cleaner, more discrete, and no maintenance.

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

Split backstay makes holding on at the transom easy. I'll use the back of the boat when we don't have guests on board (and its not rough -- but it's rarely rough around here)

DW does too. So it's not just the guys...

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

I always found that the stock stern rails were built just high enough (6" above my knees) to perfectly pitch you over the side, so when I refit the old SV Escape, I build a new "pushpit" that might just help keep you onboard.

Top rail at belly-button height. Lower rail height as required to provide a "no splash" trajectory during hands free operation of my personal bilge pump. (Height of lower rail will vary according to mounting height of personal bilge pump)

Don't know about that being "better". Maybe it's just that catamaran sailors have longer hoses.

but to be fair, I have long admitted that monohulls do make much better anchors than catamarans. All that lead weight added to the keels makes them set quicker in a silty bottom.
