eh...everybody is overlooking the ecological disaster implicit in this training exercise...ie the possibe discharge of petroleum into coastal waters...while possibly not as extensive as the recent unpleasantness (how big is she?) the danger is still there...

So, my proposal is the the event be changed thus...

Plug up the cockpit drains and have a jello wrestling contest...just don't use red jello..it stains..but at least it is biodegradable...

Let get this straight--You will have a naked pig, a scantily clad woman and a jealous got to deal with all at the same time. I would be careful of letting things escalate.

At the very least, you'll require a bigger boat; if only to accomodate spectators.

To keep things fair, I think the pig should wear a bikini, too.

I don't think it's a good idea to try to add humour to such a serious topic...

Did David do wrong?
Never seen a greased pig in a bikini... but seeing as only one bikini is mentioned, I'd buy tickets to the show

Zeehag,
Are you suggesting that a greased cat makes a better judge of newbie crew than a greased pig?
Just checking to see at what end of the spectrum my understanding is lacking.
kind regards,

my young female cooks an omlette thread was offensive ( i thought it was glad it got shut down) but wrestling greasy pigs in bikinis on the fore deck is okay. I posted in the wrong forum so it was a bad thing while this is okay because its David and in the right tag line.
