And where is that location Milly??? ;-)

I can answer for my wife. We have adopted the cruising lifestyle which includes showering in the buff on the transom. While some may be offended by my appearance, my wife's body more than compensates for it. We do not sunbathe but we skinny dip every chance we get. I have some friends who have been known to hike naked. I think that most folks out in the country do not get easily offended by nudity. They appreciate nature of all forms.

Although, once I had a boat come into the anchorage very quickly with children on deck. I was soaping up and immediately jumped into the water until they passed. I don't think it would be considered flashing as I was already naked when they arrived.

We don't flaunt it and try to anchor or moor our boat in such a way to give some privacy.

Night swimming rules dictate no bathing suits.
