It took quite an effort ... pushing and pulling for a happy ending to the situation...

Re: Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?

How do you sail with your ground tackle out? How much scope do you use and what size anchor do you have? ......Oh, wait....I get it....never mind....

Re: Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?

Wifey B: Ok, sailing I see some problems doing it. Injuries in places you don't want them. Now, we're powerboaters and use to topless in South Florida so think nothing about topless and we do like to lay out on the bridge naked. My gf's and I all have avoided tan lines as much as possible. Hubby more careful about going naked as protrusion could get injured.

For us it's just natural and like things at home really. When privacy, clothes often off. When less privacy, topless. But it's not just a boat thing, it's a beach thing too.

And you dudes are right about the pleasure of sunscreening. Definitely shouldn't be a DIY thing.

We sort of have pool ratings at home based on who will be there. Same as the movie ratings and even have little markers for regulars to look at. X, R, PG, and G. We do respect guests and their comfort levels. Family and friends check the rating levels before removing anything.

Re: Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?

I think the myth or truth of naked sailing depends on your cruising grounds. For instance in the Boston area, you really don't want to go sticking anything out that you want to hang on to....

Wifey B: Well, it works. We don't often have children around or even more conservative adults, but when we do, we don't want to behave inappropriately or offend. Same on the water. We don't pull into the crowded marina with families around naked. Hubby does have tan lines....

I think your general attitude toward nudity also depends a lot on where you live or spend your time. Just in Florida, there is a huge difference between South Florida (Fort Lauderdale/Miami) and even Tampa/Clearwater. And in the PNW and Alaska there hasn't been any sort of tendency toward nudity on our decks. My wife and our friends had never seen each other so well covered.

Re: Naked Sailing - Truth or Wishful Thinking ?

Yet another hardship for Alaskans... Sounds almost as bad as New England. :-P

If I got naked in the PNW I'd probably die of frostbite or loose one of my favorite digits of it. I used to live in New England but I'm a Florida boy now.

I doubt there are many nudist camps and retreats there. Then there is the television show "Naked and Afraid" where they are survivalists in jungles. I can't imagine running through a jungle naked or sleeping on a beach swarming with ants and some of the other things. And there is the show "Naked Dating" or something like that. Strange show. Unusual concept. And anyone who believes it is really reality....no, I don't think so.

Can't believe it's going to be near 90 degrees in Oregon this weekend. We are looking forward to that.

It's not a reality show? You mean their not really naked? I knew something was up when those two slept together and never caught a cold or a pregnancy.
