In my experience, most people that do sail naked, should only do so way outside the sight of land, and WAY outside normal shipping
When I started out cruising, I looked forward to all the beautiful people sailing naked, as depicted by popular Tee Shirts.
Sometimes, you will find a trophy wife, or an idealistic young person sans clothing
. Usually, it's just an old man. If pulling into crowded areas, they will SOMETIMES put on a pair of tighty whity underwear, in a nod toward modesty. They seem to believe any more clothing
than that would discourage someone in the crowded anchorage or mooring
field from checking out their physical prowess.
