You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Wombat launcher

I'm mostly a lurker here, but as I get off the floor from laughter, I can't help but wonder why Giulietta has yet post the picture of the Wombat launcher?

On second thought perhaps we don't want to see that!

Mike- Be careful what you wish for, and be grateful that Giu is currently travelling and might not see your post.

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
Well if you are going sailing, there will obviously be beer involved. And if there are more than two people, we're talking at least 80 to 100 beer, so the solution is quite simple.

Buy cans instead of bottles, and leave the cans attached to each other with those plastic collars they come in. Buy some duct tape. Set out on your trip and drink at a standard pace. Make sure you have chili for lunch, and don't throw the empty beer cans at the powerboaters as you would normally do. Keep them on board.

When you arrive at your anchorage, use the duct tape to seal the tops of the cans, and then duct tape the cans together to form a raft. Because of your forethought in not separating the cans from each other, you will only have to tape 1/6th as much.

When the raft is assembled launch it over the side. Then select the most powerfully flatulent member of the crew (this is why you had the chili) and place them in the water holding on to the stern of the raft, facing the bow. This person will function as your engine (think airjet). If necessary, suggests he shoves a cork in it until it's time to depart, as you don't want to waste all that raw energy.

Next, select two members of the crew who fart at a fairly similar velocity, but with less force than the fool hanging off the stern. These will function as your steering oars (unless they are real party girls in which case they might better be termed steering whores).

Finally, climb on board yourself, being careful to strap any and all remaining beer to your back (you'll need fuel to get back to the boat) and tell buddy on the arse end to let the cork fly. Maintain your curse - or course rather - through judicius emissions from either port or starboard whore - sorry oar, as required.

Enjoy !

In one of the other threads there is a chat about not wanting to see a bears crotch. A Wombat launcher may well fall into the same category.

As an experienced cruiser, I can give you one method which always works. Stand at some visible point on your boat waving the universal signal...waving a bottle of Captain Morgan's. If it turns out to be empty, you will have made it at least 1/2 way to shore.

Damn I am slow. Missed this post, my apologies if my failure to respond was interpreted as rudeness when in fact it is merely ditheriness.

However, I'm presuming PITA is an animal welfare group or perhaps merely anuses anonymous. Certainly Blinky ended up with a monumental PITA.
