You could also disguise your boat with zombie innards and sail happily through any instance. Even hang zombies from the life lines giving you a nice barrier from glare and spray!

Really the only defense we need against Zombies are to have them marry a Kardashian.
That way, their "15 minutes of fame" will literally last about 2 minutes and then they'll become
inconsequential.

Problem solved.

Here's my explanation:

I think this forum is like sitting in my cockpit. When I'm sailing sometimes I talk tactics, and other sailing stuff, sometimes I talk ****. The same mix of topics seems to exist on the board here. It would be a very tedious forum if the only topics were dry and serious. There is a lot of good stuff with guidance for new sailors, rigging questions, info on equipment, analysis of accidents etc. But sometimes, it's good to get a little whimsical.
The popularity of this thread seems to indicate that I am not alone in this opinion. Your disparagement of the topic is ironic and a little bit offensive to the others who feel that the thread is worthy of their contribution.

You absolutely have the option of not reading the thread. In fact in post #13 you indicated that you had wasted 2-minutes of your life reading the thread to that point. (Why you read after the first post as the thread was obviously about something in which you had little interest is beyond me). Then you come back in post #34 to malign other members choices of which topics they wish to make a contribution.

It seems to me that there are many that have made 'knowledgeable and well considered answer's in this thread - even citing academic sources and everything!

If you feel this is really a waste of time stop reading the posts. It's that simple.

I find irony in the fact that you feel that a debate about the very real risks involved in a zombie attack is of less interest to sailors than a discussion of the utterly fantastical notion that Cuba was involved in the Kennedy assasination - as evidenced by your contribution to the not-sailing-but totally-politically-focused thread entitled 'Cuba Changes'.

You waste your time your way, and I'll waste my time mine.

Thanks again for contributing to the popularity of this BS thread.

Great idea!

I always thought that kittens would make great fenders as they would give a sound alarm if you hit too hard. Maybe zombies would be a better choice as they are bigger and don't need feeding.

Once they are dead you would need a steady supply of zombie fenders depending on how rough the marina is. Just a little chafing and you've lost a leg, next torso and so on... It could prove to be a problem...

If in the doldrums, just throw a PFD around him and and throw him overboard, then using a "carrot" have him swim in the direction needed!

We could use the kittens as the 'carrots'!

Too bad you can't dry zombie meat! Zombie jerky sounds kinda good! You're gonna work up an appetite no doubt!

Could you drink the water from a zombies eyes? So many questions need answered!

If the zombie is 'fresh' this would probably work. Just hang thin strips from your shrouds. You would probably have to hang old CD's around the jerky as well - to keep the seagulls off.

I don't know what the yield would be on zombie ocular fluid. I would suggest a still be used to ensure the safety of the liquid. It worked for urine in Waterworld, so why not?
