This is after 280 days straight at sea no port..

Mind you - cooks are you best friends. They are rumor central, they know the crew, and most importantly they know you...

Said watch - getting coffee - within 5 minutes the COB is relieved of duty and on medical watch. Someone that got POED on his - ahem - I have to take it on the crew - laced his coffee with visine which is and oh my gawd - makes you piss out your arse like faster than a Kentucky derby winner...

Just keep that in mind...
Just fyi, Visine is tetrahydrozaline, a deadly poison. It is covered in "Outdoor Emergency Care". The old bartender trick to get rid of a patron, is dangerous.

Scott...but yours is all gone now! Besides you're just hiding behind Miss Kitty's Gene Pool. When you came along...it was "everybody out of the pool"!!

dell30rb is on a distinguished road
I got knocked down on one of the first few times i went sailing. I was probably 12 years old, sailing with my dad and our friend travis in his pearson 424. Travis is easily the most experienced sailor I know, he's been sailing for probably 50 years now, owned many sailboats, gone many places and says he's never been knocked down like that. We were sailing in the chesapeake bay.. dodging squalls all day when we got hit by what we think were microbursts. We were motorsailing with just the genoa up in about 7-10 knots of wind (main had a problem and was left on the boom) and I remember it was raining lightly but otherwise no sign of what was about to come. Out of nowhere we got hit by a 60+ knot (in our estimate) gust that lasted about 5 seconds (it felt like 30) and put the boat right on its side. I almost fell out of the cockpit and I remember looking out over the water and seeing the mast about 5 feet off the surface. The boat bobbed back up, and then before we had time to react we were hit by another gust, although this one not quite as strong, maybe around 40 knots.

theartfuldodger. that is a great story you shared with us! in 1984 on the sheila yeates ( 50ft on deck topsail ketch) coming from the parade of sail in halifax through the straights of canso heading west. wind was NW at 40 and building.we turned around and went back through the locks with some difficulty. there was a square rigger in the harbor dragging anchor with engines full ahead. we passed a canadian CG coming to help them. as we went east to get behind a hill on the north side to anchor. the wind tore tin roofs off buildings in the area
