Well, personally, would rather die with Britney Spears on top of me while moored off St. Barts in a 65' Oyster. But the bar tender bit is not too shabby, given the alternatives.

What is that related to on this thread? Other than CSY yacht were built for the charter trade and are built to hit reefs, not sure what that has to do with dying in the sack with a young (hopefully) chick(hopefully, but never know in Siam.

No, it doesn't. ANY port in a storm means ANY port in a storm.

Not for us. We have ridden out storms rather than go into port, given the ports available. West African ports for example. Some ports are best left unentered.

It is only speculation that they were intimate, the product of an era when women alone with men was frowned upon.
The delay in calling emergency help was 1hr not 3 hr.
It is not clear the 911 service had yet been implemented at the location he died in 1979.

Happy was not happy. The original deposition stated age 17, Nelson found naked in bed, and she said he was trying to make love to her. Later changes tot the deposition was at the behest of the Rockefeller family.

A quote seems appropriate:

"I want to die in bed at the age of a hundred - shot by a jealous husband."
