Fitting Punishment?

Whilst dumping the dregs overboard your crew drops the French press overboard. What do you do?

Considerations:
It's a dude so no help in the eye candy department.
He is however cheerful, helpful, and he shows up.
Replacement of the French press was not possible for several days.
He did hold the strainer with the vise grips in subsequent attempts to brew something resembling coffee.

This is easy:

He should be referred to as 'Juan Valdez' for the rest of the cruise.

Re: Fitting Punishment?

If he threw it over the side on purpose, flog him.

If it was an accident, dedicate the property to the sailing god of your choice and move on.

Some things cannot be forgiven. Make him swim for it.

Hand him a mask and snorkel and say, "fetch."

Re: Fitting Punishment?

Hrm. Now I'm considering adding the coffee-maker to the list of equipment to always have a spare available.

As for your crew: the next few times he needs to dump the dregs overboard you might duct-tape the press to his hands before he goes top-side?

Re: Fitting Punishment?

And whats wrong with Keelhauling him?

This is how it starts. First its the French press, then a winch handle or two.
Whats next? The dinks outboard?

You have to nip this in the bud .
