Re: "Permission to come aboard"?

Dim the lights, grab some popcorn because that sounds like a great scene to begin a horror flick. Seriously, all jokes aside, that is just downright creepy. Of course, there ARE those that are just curious and have no idea how rude they are being. Regardless, think that would have left me with an uneasy feeling.

I think that is a response to the fact that there are many different "10 codes" out there. They just can't agree. If you are new in town you might be code 3 to a lost puppy.

Re: "Permission to come aboard"?

It really IS a nightmare to be stuck in a conversation with a nosey person! I appreciate your post, actually got me to smile about the whole experience -- as well as, reaffirm my gut feeling about this unwanted visitor.

When I was in the Nnavy I requested to come aboard every single time I crossed the brow of the US'S Aylwin, my ship, so did everyone else. It was the rule.

Rick has it right, many an hour spent shooting the breeze over the toe rail And I think you will find that cruisers don't take offense like "land people" do. I know I would not take offense and most people I know wouldn't. You just figure that the boat is a mess or they are too busy to have visitors. Many of my discussions have been interupted buy me saying "I need to get back to my project I am in the middle of" Or just some body is naked below
The last option is you can blame it on your spouse!!!!!!!!

Re: "Permission to come aboard"?

Just stay out of marinas?? That's not a workable answer to the question.

You didn't pose the question.
