eherlihy will become famous soon enough
Weather proof chart, a brass hose nozzle (refilling water tanks), a hat - resulting in the former owner getting a neon sunburn where initially his hair, and later his hat used to be - and one sailing glove.

Neptune made a serious attempt at stealing two anchors, on two different occasions, but I think that I'm far more stubborn than he...

tigerregis has a little shameless behaviour in the past
What a wonderful thread. Now I see what binds us together. This is as good as eavesdropping a confessional.

For me it would be a hat, a cresent wrench, a new windex, the cap for my 3hp Evinrude, a paddle, a come-a-long, Minkota trolling motor, cup holder that hangs from the lifelines, quite a few screws, nuts, bolts, tools and a flaming propane tank from the grill.

No, I haven't seen her. I went out for a solo sail.

Actually I didn't recover her, the boat helping us salvaged her...in 1980 I had a 470 and there used to be a sand bank 1.5 miles away from our coast...we used to go there to...get some sun...one day, on the way back (she couln't sail to save her life), the 470 is absolutely impossible to sail on your own if the wind picks up, and I couln't lower the stay sail, any way...we capsized and I tried to righten the boat...by then the boat started sinking (a broken inspection port was letting water in like crazy) and I needed to keep the boat moving so that the water inside would leave thru the transom holes...I capsized again, and I told her I couldn't tack or I would capsize again, so I left her there...she knew I would come back...and eventualy I did, but the boat was sinking and by the time I got to her she was on the CG boat (they came out once they saw us capsize the first time). We both had the life vests on, and so they towed us for a while, the water scooped out and we return on our own. She also lost a shoe, and I lost a precious sauce pan...

We remained "lovers" for another 6 months...after that I went to the army and met another girl that could sail....but she couldn't cook....so she was gone too....

I saw the funniest sacrifice today, the neighbor just came back from west marine with a brand new 50' coiling hose, new spray nossle and new quick release coupler, as soon as the wife turned the hose on the spray nossle went * POP * and shot about 10' right in water.

The funny part was, he just raised his beer as to say " Oh well, ya got another one " I saluted with my coffee
