My boat doesn't run with the wind very well (I keep hearing strong language from the cabin when I do it) so I keep a few degrees to port or starboard of it. It's not that I don't want to I can't. Just my wacky boats way of cruising that's all. Others may do as they please.

Never tune a rig in a thunderstorm. Not without popcorn in one hand anyway!

Pee to weather when it's really cold and windy and while while wearing sweatpants. Need more information?

Re: What Should You NOT Do on a Boat ?

As you go through life
two rules will never bend
Never whittle towards yourself
Nor pee in to the wind... Anon

Please remember,
When at sea,
Even men,
Sit down to pee... Capt Phil

Never put your engine in gear before checking to ensure that all lines and power cords are clear of the water.

So a bear and a rabbit cross paths in the woods. Bear says to Rabbit, "Does poop stick to your fur?", to which Rabbit replied, "Nope...I have no problems with that." So the bear wipes his butt with the rabbit.
