Re: So dumb its funny ... or just sad?
Ok, so we were anchored at the bottom of Penang Island, Malaysia a few weeks ago...time to check and clean the prop, the current running a bit, had my fins and snorkel on, hopped in the water, floated down to the back of the boat, just about to go under when a jelly fish wraps itself around my midsection, holy cow did that sting, ever see a man walk on water against a 2 knot tide? The warm vinegar bath helped, but I had blisters and it has itched like hell for almost a month. I don't know about jumping in the water any more...
Wow. You just gave me a great tip- Keep a large bottle of vinegar aboard.
