Hats, probably 20 of them over my lifetime. Also my lunch a few times in rough water. I dont know what people who have never been sea sick think it is like, but its pretty much the most terrible feeling in the world and i was praying the boat would sink. I dont get sea sick any more though.

years ago we had a small party on my boat, unfortunatly one of the guests got sick and she had to throw up. She politly shot everything overboard including her false teeth. We hired a diver and still never found them, needless to say she was embarassed...

- A hair scrunchie while racing in college
- A toothbrush and toothbrush holder (almost retrieved it but it sunk just as I reached it)
- A snubber on the anchor rode which I thought my husband had attached a shackle with pin to, but he had not, and when I uncleated the line the snubber was attached to and let go by accident, bye-bye, beautiful snubber hook...that and the toothbrush went over the same weekend, Chris lost two more expensive things over the side that same w/e but he dove on one and recovered it...I will leave that for him to add if he wants ;0)

Add lapbook computer to that list as my next slip-mate tripped while climbing over his lifelines and into the drink went his new lapbook. Great reason to invest in a "Pelican Case" for it and use it.

Hat - Grenadines - $15
Chart Kit - Grenadines - $80
Needle nose pliers - Los Aves - $20
Filet knife - Between Las Aves and Bonaire - $20
3 of 4 grill grates - Panama - $10 plus labor
Tap and tap holder - Panama - $12 (had to buy a whole new set to get the right size)

After that little exercise I stopped keeping a list. The dollar amounts were too depressing to think about.

Cheers,
Danika

That will sure help blow the $500.00 a month budget huh?

Surprisingly little, and mostly annoying little things. Like weird retaining clips. The unique stuff that gives you an OMG reaction when you hear that little splash!

I did drop a refurbished pin for my rudder while fitting out one winter's day. It was a VERY cold swim to collect it off the bottom. (And a lucky find at that.)

Oh yes. I lost my prescription glasses skippering a rescue on the local lifeboat. It is very strange running a tow & raft job when life is but a blur! But hey, all ended well.

Just yesterday I was pulling an extention cord through the open port (I plug it into the GFR socket in the galley) the cord hooked my belt keeper sitting on the shelf inside and flipped it out the port into the water... lost my pretty Wichard fid, my small curved, serrated survival knife and my leatherman all in one swell foop. Very exciting...

things lost overboard

While furling the main after a sail one winter's day, I threw a sail tie over the boom and sail . Due to the cold, my fingers were slightly smaller than normal allowing my wedding band to slide right off ! I made a mid-air grab for it but only succeeded in batting it overboard.

I lost a shoe overboard when I tried to throw them thru a window and only one made it. I was about 4 at the time so that might not count. In the latest issue of lattitudes and attitudes there is an article on this very subject. Very entertaining. I think it was called Lost Loves and Shiny Things.
