Re: Clothing optional sailing

**Breaking news!!!**

According to Dr. Oz: wearing a bra *causes* sagging!! Something to do with the bra making the ligaments lazy and they stop "doing their thing" to hold the girls up.

At least it's news to me. I always feel guilty without one even though I go without frequently while at home or on the boat. I feel like I'm doing harm. NO MORE!!

Or, at least until the next scientific journal counters this one.

And this is NOT an invitation for the men who read this section to say "I've been telling you women that since you hit puberty!!" That was NOT your reason for wanting us bra-less.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

Hey, if you're comfortable going without, go without. It should be your choice. No one should tell you you have to wear one. Women didn't wear them for thousands of years and survived quite well. I think it is all a plot by the fashion industry to sell us all more clothes we don't really need. No really!

Well if your reasons and ours are in alignment that's called serendipity.

Re: Clothing optional sailing

I just found this thread. As a new sailor, it's a welcome respite from all the obsession I've been doing over learning the art, the gear, and the boat. We're still in the process of naming our boat, and every time we try to get serious about it, it turns into an all-night giggle fest. My favorite name will NEVER make it onto our boat; my wife has totally nixed it, and to be honest I wouldn't actually put it on either... I don't think... .

In any case, to add the boat-name portion of the thread, I present what I am sure is a clear winner, and hereby offer it to anyone for their use. For extra yuks, plug it into the BoatUS boat graphics design page and use the Algerian font.. it looks AWESOME... even classy..

and the name is...

Shomi Yerboubis II

As you were...

Re: Clothing optional sailing

Shomi Yerboubis sounds like the name of an Israeli politician. One who is abreast of all issues.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Awesome, witty, original. I like it. And while it would be great painted on a transom, just imagine how your mayday call would go......

Coast Guard: "Station calling mayday mayday we're all going to die, what is the name of your vessel over?"

Boat About to Die: "Shomi Yerboubis II"

Coast Guard: "Helo 61, Rescue Craft 64, and Cutter Jingo, STAND DOWN we have a hoax. Return to your bases."

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.

I was going to make some tasteless joke about the sagging breasts that result from the above advice, but decided against it....

That would be hitting below the belt.

Yeah, we kind of thought of that. The work-around in emergency and other over-the-air communications would be to pronounce it "Shah-MYE Yare-bow-BISS TWO," but in an emergency situation it'd probably be hard to do on the first try. Oh well.... gotta weigh the risk vs. reward, I guess... .

or worse, "Shomi YareBowBis? Sounds like a terrorist..."
