When you watch the old codger you've been married to for a half-century plunge through an open hatch and slam to the deck below, the first thing that probably ran through her mind was "If the old fart killed himself, how will I get home, and where is the life insurance policies?)

I guess she just panicked, which after all these years of being married to me, that's very understandable. I hope she'll be spending lots of time on the Morgan this summer, but her deteriorating physical condition may preclude that. I told her that if she doesn't go sailing this summer I could end up with a couple of French Toast makers. She said if I did that there's a good chance she'll be collecting on that life insurance policy.

Cheers,

Gary

I have always worried about falling down through an open hatch.

What do you do differently now to avoid that?

Close it?

All hatches and ports are closed underway.

Yep--that's what I should have done, and ALWAYS do now. That hatch is closed anytime I'm not going below. Sometimes I forget to open it before coming up the ladder--OUCH! I have the scars to prove how much that hurts.

Cheers,

Gary

I will leave the companionway hatch open IF there is a dodger.

What I hate is hitting the closed hatch while wearing a ball cap, that little button on the top can really hurt and draw blood. Of course, the peak prevents you from noticing the hatch is closed.

So do you mostly see successful marriages or failed ones? Just saying. ;-)
