Thanks, Mkfcdl, that was a good suggestion regarding the spray problem. It was the spray across the bows that was doing in my drying efforts.
Ah, Sailingdog, never tried the nudity thing but it was a thought at the time. North of Hawaii I was just wearing running shorts, an occasional shirt, and lots of sunscreen. The running shorts were just a little too tight and irritating in the crotch area.
Your point about sunburn is well taken. Later in the '90's I lived in the Marshall Islands, 7' N, the REAL tropics. I'll tell you, tropical sun on white skin, even at 0900, can actually hurt. When I went back to US people would ask me, "Why aren't you more tan?" "Because, the tropical sun is too much and I stayed out of direct sun as much as I could."
