Re: Those long foul weather passages

when it gets that desperate isn't time to heave too? It is in my boat, unless the coast is too close.

Del,

That mod is not up to the standard of the engine installation and the females will not like it. It needs a parasol.

Re: Those long foul weather passages

I once saw a Dreadnaught that as well as a long bowsprit, had a stern sprit (?) created by two teak beams coming from either side aft to join at the end. (like an A frame) Near the aft end, just forward of the backstay tang, was a toilet seat bolted on. It was truly a Poop Deck!

Re: Those long foul weather passages

Anyone who worked on the water back in the day (pre-1970) would remember the shorthanded, bad weather passages to or from fishing grounds with everyone either drunk or asleep or both, under tow trying to find a place to hide from the weather, shortening the towline alone and trying to drive from the aft deck station while winching in the barge/log boom in 0 visibility. You just make do by looking after your bodily functions quickly and where ever you can. No drama and clean it up tomorrow if the sea doesn't wash it away sooner. We all survived and were stronger for it, I guess. Phil

Yep . Thats why fire stations have large shower bays. Come back from a 6 hr firefight and walk in fully clothed in bunker gear. Done it many times.

Yes, but the knot would restrict the flow.

Re: Those long foul weather passages

Cockpit and poop deck? Yeah! It makes you wonder. Just don't like the idea of turning my cockpit drains into sewer pipes. Besides with the main halyard spread all over the deck, I'm not sure it'd all get washed out.

Re: Those long foul weather passages

Friend of mine that circumnavigated used a 2-3 inch PVC pipe, long enough to use while standing. Just grab and go, aiming the other end of the pipe for the scupper. Wife used it too. So beware of loose PVC pipe while on any boat

Be very careful peeing overboard, most drowning victims, when recovered, have their pants unzipped. Tether up!
