Hawkwind is on a distinguished road
Many years ago, I was sailing on Lake Michigan on my old Venture 222 with some friends. The names have been changed for this story.

Jane goes down below to do something and her husband, Dick follows. Dick calls me to the companionway and whispers "How do I close this thing up, we want to f***". I figure he's yanking my chain but point to the fiberglass insert for the companionway. So he closes it and my other friend, who's at the helm asks "what's up?". I lean over and tell him what Dick said. He laughs, also thinking it's just a joke.

Well, soon enough we hear this steady thumping sound vibrating through the boat. Dick is one of those large, bearded, motorcycle riding types and my little Venture 222 only weighed 1800 lbs. About this time, Dick and Jane's nine year old daughter turns around and asks "Where's mommy and daddy?" Well, we're already trying very hard to contain our giggles. My friend at the helm finally said, "They're down below talking" to which she replied, "Ohhhh, I know what they're doing".

How's this for the beginning of a story: "At daybreak a flotilla appeared on the horizon, and I knew we were in trouble. It was a flotilla perverts. The womenfolk would be safe, but soon the men would be fighting for their virtue..."

Scratch the above post. Sounds painful, and after further consideration I've decided that I really don't want to hear what anyone has to say on the subject.

"I'd always fantasized what she would look like with clothes on, and it looked as though I would soon have my wish.

Putting on her socks and underwear my heart started beating rapidly, and as the comfortable fit levis and heavy sweater went on, I felt my excitement building.

Slipping into large bright yellow foulies, and pulling the hood tightly over her head, the anticipation I had waited so long for overcame me and I lay back in a warm glow of exhaustion as I slowly went to sleep.
