Sail naked? Not on your life. A sun/windburnt willy ain't no picnic.

I'm a nudist and sail nude all the time, and I have never burnt my "willy".

Once on the run from Bangkok to Manila in a C-Mist we would get hit by summer, nighttime squalls arround 10PM. I was ususlly on deck on watch. With an approaching squall I would bang the bell and get the 2 crew, One male one female, on deck to reef the gaff main and jibs. Invariably this did not get doen till after the rain began so all of us were drenched. This went on for two nights - on the third night the crew trurned to with out a stitch. I can attest that in a bit of a blow working a gaff main down and reeffing the sails doesn't leave much room to contemplate the nakid woman standing a foot away. It was smart, no wet and salty clothes in the forepeak. Seemed most natural - Works in the tropics but not in the PNW! Probably not the way to go at a Seattle Yacht Club regatta! But who would go any way!

I know many of times my wife and I have sailed with only skimpy britches on. 75 deg early spring day feels so good on the body after a long cold winter.

I always wear my hat to shade the head and the belly looks after the rest.

I will agree with that. Once the weather hits 70-75 degrees, the cloths come off. The fun feels damn good after a few months of cold weather!

Yeah, I gotta wear a hat so as not to fry my solar panel. We're allready looking for warmer weather. LOL.
