Unless there is more detail you aren't sharing, it sounds like they were just comfortable with their bodies and you aren't.
This thread has never been so much about nakedness but more to do on whether it is appropriate.
The incident in question was is a crowded anchorage where the boats were swinging often only a few meters away. The three men
in question were the nearest boat
Around the anchorage were hotels and beaches that hired out pedalos and canoes to people and families with children
who would come out the short distance from the beach between the boats.
There were other naked people on boats but only on boats. None on the beach and none on the pedalos.
Why weren't they naked on the beach? Probably because it wasn't appropriate or it was against the law.
We sail naked and depending on where we are anchored will go naked if we think it appropriate.
Both my wife and I are quiet happy with our bodies and usually have no problems with being naked.
These three men
were not being overtly sexual but would find any excuse to wander onto the deck
, exercise or just generally parade every time my wife was in view.
To her it was threatening to the point she did not want to be on deck
and eventually we left.
There was no doubt in my mind and hers that they were just not going about there business but were exhibiting themselves,
There were families on pedalos who saw the same and headed directly away from their boat
What i am saying is that nakedness is not wrong but it has to be appropriate.
Some people on here write as if it is there right (which it is) but stuff everyone else.. they will do what they want and anyone who objects is mad, a religious freak or has been brought up wrong.
We are not. We just also like to have consideration for others and be appropriate.
We may be in the minority judging by some of the replies but that is they way were are and we will always try to be the same.
