Name Something You Have Done

Confession time.
Name something you have done while out at sea, where you thought no one was looking.

Apart from the obvious nudity, what did you do in the privacy of your own ocean?

Hampus, that doesnt count. Apart from nudity and the natural display of 'affection', what else?

Trouble is that apart from the nudity and affection you've disbarred I can't think of anything that particularly qualifies as shocking. What sort of thing are you thinking of?

What's the longest time without a shower/dip overboard?

Well if we don't get to count things of a sexual nature...whats the fun.

After many many days of sweltering heat between Hong Kong and Manila 1979 I emptied the gear out of the fore peak and filled it with sea water.

Earlier that day a tried dragging myself along side from a line down from the boom...that was good for about 2 minutes until we got into the jelly fish.....realy a bad idea....the bath in the bow was the next best thing.

My girlfriend who took the picture had the next, next best idea...but you said no details eh!

I was 20 in this picture...51 now

James, you didnt need to put your shorts on just for me.

So it seems everyones naughtiness only extends to matters carnal.
Come on then, do your worst.

On a trip from the Cook Islands to Auckland the conditions were rough and cold. I was on watch with another guy so we just started talking about what food we would like to eat. Somehow we got on McDonald's. To pass the time we went through this elaborate make believe trip to mcDonald's sharing a shake and fries etc. Pretty strange behavior for twenty year old but it helped pass the time.

We were towing our cheap 4 man Sevylor raft behind our Bayliner several years ago.. I just had it tied to the front handle not to a proper bridal system I was thinking it was so darn light I had more to worry about it going airborne before anything else...as soon as I goosed the engine above just an idle it headed for Davie Jones locker...The Kids were hollering at me to slow down.

Nothing parted or was destroyed but I did one of those sheepish look arounds to see if I was on candid camera..
