Things the sea has taken

I know it is not just me. In three years of sailing the sea has taken:

Scuba tank I kicked off the back while running wire

Many, many tools

2 cell phones

one of our yatzee die, making impossible to finish the game

wallet and all its contents

many pieces of our bbq

butter knife

spatchula

and about 1000 other items. What are some of the interesting things you have lost.

This is why you "spill" your first sundowner over the lifelines in honour of Neptune, you know. A guy who lives in a salty sea gets a powerful thirst.

A pair of glasses while rounding the weather mark. I had to get the running backstays set, so I couldn't grab them when the boom took them off my face. I got a strap to go with the new pair.

Also lost two cell phones when the ziploc bag wasn't sealed and my bag got soaked in the dinghy ride.

Over the years she's has borrowed dive gear, surfboards, cell phones, power tool, hand tools, extention cords, eye glasses, sunclasses, fishing poles, boat hooks, anchors and tried to borrow my 77' Landcruiser while on a surfing trip.

She has given in return, countless memories, endless dreams and a really cool handcarved Koa wood ash tray

I think she got the short end of the deal

So far I have only lost

1. One pair of sunglasses bought in Mexico.

2. A glove hotshot

3. A sandwhich

4. Almost lost a friend who fell over-board while un-conscious from a focal siezure. Took a long time to heave him out of the water....but, this happened at the dock luckily Had it been in the bay, he'd surely be dead.

Around 100 clothespins (with attached clothing and towels), winch handle and a rear transom seat kicked overboard by a guest (even though it was safetied!). Oh, and my Tilley hat; but that turned into a MOB excercise.
