Lancer28 is on a distinguished road
First day out on the new sailboat, and I lost my charcoal grill grating, food, coals and cover overboard. I somehow forgot to attach the dummy cord.

Few minutes later when I was hauling up the anchor, since dinner was ruined, I lost a Skegen wrist watch which just literally popped off, then I turned and dropped a winch handle from the pocket at the mast, it bounced once, hung on the toe rail for a minute, as if to say "goodbye dummy" and then it went ker-pluk down to davy's.

Well, at least I haven't lost anything else since then!
