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.

James, you are a divorce lawyer, yes?
So do you mostly see successful marriages or failed ones? Just saying. ;-)
