Hula girl shirts on board

I am not interested in anyones opinion or politics, so dont post if you cannot answer the question. I just researched the hula girl shirt question and read a lot of post. Frankly some of you kibbitz more than old women.

To Answer the question you must have circumnavigated or sailed at least 1/2 way around the rock and took a hula girl shirt. Or own or been on a boat. or seen a boat or picture of a boat. Or own a hula girl shirt. Or seen a picture of a hula girl shirt with a boat or thought of a boat nearby.
How much of a hassle was it to take your hula girl shirt.

Simple as that.

Well, maybe not so simple......polyester like the "real" fake Hawaiian shirts or cotton like anyone willing to wash in seawater and dry on the rail will appreciate? Must one be single to get away with the hula sans cocoanuts version? May that be worn in public?

Dfok , my boy, I'm your man.

As a lad I did the sail round in 1921, having given the Hun a serious pasting in the big one and while resting up for round two in 1939. At the time we lived in less restrictive times and while the lads at the Empire Services Club were less than enthusiastic my crew and I wore nowt but Hula girls shirts in all but the chilliest of weather. Well all but Dwight who insisted I'd said skirt not shirt.

Having dissed the Hun, the Ities and those nasty little Nipponese chappies in '45 we set out again but oh we were alarmed at the changes come over the world. Where once gay Jack Tars greeted us with encouraging shouts of approval now we were faced with reproach for bearing our loins with such abandon.

Dwight still clung to his skirted ways and was hustled off to the brig when we first entered foreign ports and while he could not bring himself to confess what manner of ill treatment he suffered he did seem to take it with good grace, indeed at times seemed a little to eager to be taken in hand by the port police.

I do worry about that boy. He slipped away in Sydney one afternoon and hasn't been heard from since.

So please be warned. The right to wear garishly coloured polyester emblazoned with images of semi naked dusky young gels is not universal. Enshrined it may be in you American chappies's constitution but tell that to one of these damnable native wallahs in far flung Auckland and you may well well regret your choice of attire.

dfok, I think you already knew the answer, but if not tdw certainly spelled it out for you.

I always wear an XL Hula girl shirt so that I can conceal my firearm when needed.

I originally went with polyester, and while cool and brightly colored, I have and old cotton one that has faded to a pale torquoise, and has wrinkled to a uniform consistancy that I like to wear. I've found if it gets wet the cooling effect of the wind works better than polyester. So far no hassles other than a few strange looks. (PS I've only worn it from Veitnam to Bahamas).
