You mean that isn't how your supposed to warm up a wetsuit before a dive?

Um. Not "before". Now *during* a cold-water dive after being well-hydrated as always to minimize risk of getting bent, ah, well....

Next question ;-)

man!!!!!!!!

is it that hard to beleive that other people have other points of view?

I mean what if your autopilot failed, and you lost something oevrboard, or your sail got stuck, or whatever I mean there are infinite scenarios...yet you think there will ALWAYS be a chance to go down into the head and sit down and take a pee?

man

its not all about what I think...we must always see other points of view
I think if it were me and I was in that situation a simple solution is just pee on the cockpit floor. Simple matter of flushing it off with a bucket when you get a chance. Simple and safe.

Doesn't get much simpler than something like a painter's cup... attach a light lanyard to dip it in the drink for a rinse...



A plastic dinghy bailer could serve a double function, as well...



Never ceases to amaze, or amuse, how complicated some can make something as simple as taking a leak... :-)

I hope this guy didn't die that useless and wasteful way.

But for anyone reading this please remember that peeing over the side is an absolute no-no.

if pee dosent go over the side were does it go then in the bilge?..or do you think it should be filtered and used again?

Re: Missing Boat Found- No Skipper

my point simply got lost with all the negativity...my point was yeah basically to get out of dodge you cant always go downstairs...

i have peed in gatorade bottles, water bottles(with aim) jajaja in my foulies, over the side, when at anchor over the rail I mean there are a million ways...yes even into the wind...what nobody has been drunk enough to forget to not pee in the wind?

I agree with all above there are many things both commercially sold and available and made up

dinghy racing sailors do it all the time...its just another point of view...
when I used to race lasers all I did was jump in the water come right back up and get sailing again

dont know what all the hooplah is about

Im glad I know how to use the ignore button on here know at the end of the day...life is too short to argue all day on something as peeing or the possibilty of someone dying while peeing and possibly falling overboard

whatever the case maybe Im trully sorry someone died and had his boat still sailing...may his soul rest in peace...

I havederailled this thread too much and for that I apologize

carry on

Re: Missing Boat Found- No Skipper

Do you guys have seen this?

Two people have been rescued from cold Puget Sound waters after falling out of a sailboat.
Seattle Police Det. Renee Witt said Saturday that two people fell off the boat before 4 a.m. and were unable to get back on board. Other people in the boat threw ropes and life jackets to help them stay afloat, but Witt says the people were in the water for a while before friends decided to call 911.

There are some that are thinking in a way to get back alone to the boat if they fall on the water but it seems that some not even with help can get back on board and that is not the first time that I have heard this kind of stories. Those have been lucky but others have died.

Regards

Paulo

Probably the strongest argument in favour of sugar scoop transoms.

Re: Missing Boat Found- No Skipper

What I find amazing, and basically unknown to us landlubbers, is that the simple act of relieving one's bladder over the rail can get you killed. I'm thankful that I found this out before I bought a boat than after, possibly the hard way. Makes one wonder what other little known lifesaving tidbits of knowledge I have yet to learn.
