I work with a gentleman who fell off his small fishing boat while pinching a loaf over the side. He had to swim for about 4 hours before a casino boat picked him up.

Yessir,
Same as on a Golf course, full members only, admire the horizon, don't p*ss into the wind, remember to rezip and never spray a lady member.
Samo, Samo.
Cheers,
Mac

Re: Do You Pee Standing Up

Every boat with a "male" on board should have one, absolutely priceless! , use it during Yard mode, lumpy seas, .... saves wear and tear on head, saves messy head cleaning, women do not have to fear sitting down....., quick, easy to clean ...and empty!

Ok ....I'm done

Re: Do You Pee Standing Up

Worst case scenario...get fitted with a long-tube Foley Catheter...no splashing anywhere anymore...it flows directly into an easy to service container. Problem solved! Next issue?

Knows and sees all...but you already knew that!
