Sad for everyone..
85% of man who fall overboard have there flies open. 43.5% of statistics are made up.

I do not pee overboard. On a delivery to St Barths, the fresh water system started leaking on a boat with fresh water heads. We peed in a bottle and dumped overboard or were tethered if we went direct.
