Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

ME get a sense of humor? You need a mirror there, sunshine. Here's a classic case of "can dish it out but can't take it".

For the record, the conversation was about peeing overboard. YOU brought up the cat vs mono thing. Then get yer knickers in a twist at a response. Must be bothering you, somehow. Me? I'm way comfy with my choice of boats. For a mono sailor to think that a multihull sailor cares what they think about our boats is kinda indicative of how far behind they are. Thirty years ago, when multihulls were first starting to make some impact on the market, that mattered. But note the operative phrase "30 years ago". Some societies are probably still arguing the advantages of slide rulers over four function calculators...

How many monohulls do you reckon Moorings adds to their fleet yearly? That's purely market driven.

That's okay. I understand where you're coming from. The frustration of being behind the times in half a boat. It's okay. Many of us have been there. Move toward the light. It's called a bridgedeck. You'll be okay, brother. Relax and let go of the past.....

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

I always Pee over the back, Thats what the Wind Generator Pole is for, Hanging on,

But in really bad weather, I use the cockpit drain, or still over the back,

The Dunny is out of the question, Thats in the front half of my boat, Its going up and down

and round and round, Its suicidal in my Dunny in bad weather,

I cant swim at 4 knots,

So I always have a chest harness on that wont allow me to go over the side,

My transom is nearly always level and steady, It dont leap about at all, So its quite steady to Pee off,
Nice weather, I also sleep on my transom, While in transit, Open my eyes, I have all round vision from there as well,

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

It's a feeling of the power of ownership to pee on my own property.

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

I like my comfort too much to pee in bed, I mean it's warm for awhile then it gets cold.

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

Anyone who's ever made part of their living as a diver knows about peeing in wetsuits. Especially in New England, or under the ice.

I've got four nice scuppers right across the aft part of the cockpit. Could line up me and three other guys just like in the men's room , if needed. It would go straight into the water. Safely.

I just prefer hanging off the transom, out over the water, making little foamy patterns and wakes....

Thought you preferred monohulls. At least, that was the impression based on previous blasts. Got to the short term memory loss stage already, eh?

Well, that sure explains a lot of your arguments.


It's okay with me if you prefer slow life tilted over at an angle, living down in the basement. While even the "condomarans" will sail past most recreational monohulls easily.

All this because of a joke about mono's heeling and saving one dribbling Pee on one's feet.. a fact you complained about when standing at the shrouds.. guess it was to subtle..
Out of that came Mono's better on the bottom etc etc..
I sail what I can afford at the time.. and the Cats I prefer don't have bridgedecks.. everythings in the hulls.
But then... I've only got a little dick..

Re: Cautionary tale: falling overboard while peeing

The real reason I don't pee of the back end of the boat is that the water is cold...........................
