Actually they do keep such stats, Mike. And the most common answer, in answer to the question of what the man was doing before going overboard, was "urinating". It's been a while since I've read anything on it but it seems like the number was like 40% of the MOB cases. No other specific activity broke single digits in frequency. It's obvious, from this data, that women stay on the boat better! (g)
