I live in northern Washington (to congested/stuck-up for nude sailing) and cruise in Canada and eventually Alaska....nude sailing isn't very comfortable up here. Though this is the first place I have lived in a long time where I am free to be nude in my own "living room".

Got to agree there. Way to cold up there for nude sailing, unless you're a Polar Bear!
Take it where ever you can get it.

It is not so much modesty more climate in this part of the world......elsewhere? I think I would be worried about collateral damage ....but possibly others do not have so much to worry about?

I'm all for hangin out with my wang out, but I dunno about exposing the little guy to the southern florida sun, definitely don't want to get wang cancer and I'm fairly convinced some day in the future they are going to say sunscreen causes some other rare form of cancer.

but wut the hell it wouldn't bother me if I got passed by the nude crew.

I'd find myself having to spend more time trying to keep my penis out of the way than getting things done. I guess I could do what the bush men do and wrap it in some kind of enclosure and tie it up to my waist. Naw, I think I'll stick to wearing shorts and bathing suits.
That's pretty much my stance. I wear dickies shorts (over the knee), crocs, and a long sleeve tan or white nylon shirt (suplex, lightweight, sun protection stuff). Oaklies, gloves, life jacket / harness (at night or alone or when needed otherwise), and a full brim hat is awesome.

This never worked for me (wife's too smart, dammit) but my friend claims to have gotten results;

"Honey, see that buoy over there? The Coast Guard rules say you cannot take your top off until we are past it, ok?"

I have through the years known several people who nearly lived on the nude beaches in some rather temperate climates. Places where the temp. was over 90 deg. F. every day and after years of this life have had no trouble with skin conditions.
Of course some seem more susceptable than others, and nobody wants to be the first bad story.
Still though, I love the warm sun and the freedom. I just need to find that balance between "To 'Nuff and To Nun".
The areas climate here has pretty much kept me in wraps so far. Too darn cold here on the S.F. Bay....South, I need to move South!

That little ploy would not work for me either. The wife took a sailing course and the instructor told her the coast guard quit writing on bouys when they passed anti-graffiti laws.
When we hit the boat the clothes fall off!

Don't wear them

Bathing suits cause cancer in rats.

Shu,

You must be in the Alameda channel, or behind Angel Island. Everyplace else on the bay in the summer is an icebox!

I did get in Lat38 in Feb

Nope! Oyster Point Marina. Cold here from the wind. That's what I've been saying. It's too cold here for nude sailing. I can catch a little sun now and then but very little,as the wind comes up early.
So what were you in Lat.38 for? I had the Feb. Issue...back then. Then too, we're working on the boat right now and aren't sailing anywhere for a while.

So let me see if I have this right. You want your wives to keep their clothes on but they want to shed them as soon as possible?

Well that's not exactly my case. I really don't mind and she's old enough to make up her own mind about things.
I can assure you we have done a lot of nudity in our lives, and it wasn't all in private or on the beach.

Now that's funny as hell. I was trying to remember when was the last time I scampered anywhere. Oh... and the whack my member part was funny too.
Honestly, what a crack up. I may have to use your line. I'll pay you off in beer if ever we should meet.
Feel free to use at your discretion. I will take that beer though...

My other fear is swimming naked. Talk about jigging a dangling lure!
