Never trust a skinny chef or a sailor with a clean hat.

Will agree with the skinny chef part.

I think you're probably living in a time forgot...

Quite true. fifty years is a long time ago. Which is why we retired to an island. Yet, some parts of the world have remained mostly the same, and some have even reverted to olden times.

Re: What ever happen to the REAL cruisers?

Guess I'll never be a real captain. My floppy hat and flip flops are pretty much all I wear. Well that and a blouse and shorts.

I really have not seen anyone in California wearing a captains hat. It would knock my socks off (if I wore socks) if I did. Not sure a captains hat is part of American culture. The USA guys I see wear Tilly hats or cane hats.

Reread our discussion previously, please. Was not talking about American, nor European countries; was talking about second and third world countries and ports. You want to wear shorts in Port Said?

what i noticed is that professionals who EARN their hats remove them indoors and when ladies are present.

unless in a rowdy meeting of their own kind

Re: What ever happen to the REAL cruisers?

Everything is relative.
When I had a small private plane, I shunned GPS when it came out. I was a die hard map and compass man and used a stop watch to navigate everywhere. When GPS came along I found people who could pass as the village idiot flying around Europe where previously, they wouldn't fly 2 miles from the airfield. I scorned these pathetic individuals and saw them as a danger to themselves and anyone around.
Moving on 20 years. I have just crossed the Atlantic and am now enjoying cruising around the Caribbean.
Have I mastered the sextant? Well er... um...
Have I used only manual navigation...... Well er um...
Or er um.. At all?
So you see guys you could have been my "Village idiot "

And now I am surely yours!

If you ever sail to Africa, the Near East, or even the Far East, you will be in for a surprise. Also one does not "earn" one's hat; one's hat is considered to reflect what you do in most parts of the world.

I keep forgetting this board is not about cruising abroad but in home waters most of the time.

Like most threads this is a dynamic conversation that no one person can define.
We have pilots, old hockey players, gas vs. diesel and now shorts in Port Said. It's never the role of any one person to define or restrict the topic.

I do agree that it's best to adapt to your cruising locale. If I cruise in California I'm going to need to find out what a tilly hat is!

A Tilly hat is a reasonable quality, expensive cotton hat made in Canada, where all things cool come from.

I rescued a Tilly hat once and it had money in it.
