Getting a large unconscious person back on board is something I have often thought about. There was a very nasty sailing accident
here in Australia
a couple of years ago where the skipper
died. And it took 7 burly blokey crew to get his body out of the water.
scared me into doing my course and learning
more about safety
And have thought about having to use the halyard
and perhaps breaking a few ribs if it was absolutely necessary.
As to large dogs
I have a platform at the back with a fold down ladder which goes a long way into the water. The ladder is manily for me so I can get back on board after a awim.
Train the dog to swim to the platform, my old dogs could clamber onto the platform and then jump on board.
Still working on the new trainee seapuppy.
I get wet with seawater, use shampoo to wash hair and body. Rinse off with seawater and then a final rinse with a little bit of fresh water.
Dry hair in wind
Pretty nails? Ha. Petrol, thinners, acetone etc play havoc with my acrylic
nails. Did some maintenance
yesterday and they are completely buggered.
Re amorous gentleman sailors.
Where are they?
I will head
in that direction.
