We were invited onto a strangers boat for drinks. I needed to go number 1's so went to use their dunnie. As I was in full flow I let rip a shocking fart. When I got back to the saloon my wife was looking very embarrassed and wanted us to leave. As soon as we were in the dinghy and half way back to the boat she gave me an ear full. My ripping fart had stopped the conversation in the saloon. Gosh, it's only nature

Seafox :

Regarding your a*se ripper...

Aboard Winpipe (from experience) when company is present I've learned that having a handheld VHF in the head is a very good idea.

That way you can listen to "a loud" weather report, just in case nature may decide to "turn up the volume" on you.

Of course, in such close quarters it's tough to save face, but saying what they "thought" they heard was just static interference... may help a man avoid getting more sh*t (from the Admiral) than he's dropping off in the Jabsco.

Sir Seafox,

As a young fella, is this something I have to look forward to as I get older?

Just make sure you clean the VHF after the guest has used it...

No, I have always been good at it. It certainly has not got any better with age.

Mrs Seafox has just read this thread and it has brought back memories

Truth is, I was a bit bored with the people on the yacht and did it on purpose to see what the reaction would be

Well it can't have been our boat, because Mrs Wheels has been known to let a few rip herself, much to my embarresment.

No, it wasn't your boat. It was in Dawkland. Those Dawklanders are pretty fun to "wind" up (pun intended).

N0 Corn on the boat. In any form unless it is fermented and bottled.

Corn is the enemy of heads that are used by a lot of peepul.

The Rule of Thirds....

My MOther-in-law found our Levac head too complicated to use, and ended up leaving the line full of #2, which promptly backfiled into the head.

I kept a straight face, and told her it was a volume issue, and that I was henceforth instituting the "RULE OF THIRDS"....

Simply put..Go 1/3rd, STOP, flush. repeat two more times.

She has not been back!

lol

At the heart of this thread is the real issue.We tend to describe the operation of the head as something that should only be taken on by those who have been properly trained and certified in marine science. Sometimes tto the degree that people will go to extremes just to avoid it's use. Maybe a better solution would be a simpler explanation. Not to stick up for the mother in law (I have one too), but my guess is, getting up in the middle of the night, half awake, the concept of working through a set of complex instructions just was not the easiest choice. Especially when a good old fashoined pee in the bottle option was avalable. Now, leaving it behind for you, well, that may have been personal
