Both shots look to be motoring. Who cares what happens aboard a motoring boat.

Suit yourself.
I need to know what he was doing to catch his sack on a cleat, I have this mental picture in my mind and it wont go away. What was he doing?

Well after you take a turn around the post you need to cleat off the line, which leaves only one location to mount the cleat...

Re: Clothing optional sailing

I subscribe to the 'clothing optional' philosophy - and choose the 'wearing of' option.

Actually, we were under sail there, you can see the mainsheet running out to starboard... The conditions that day were sportier than the pic indicates, probably blowing about 20 or so, somewhere off the Georgia seacoast. The boat was a Bristol 41.1, and she slid along very nicely downwind, in those conditions...

The second was taken about 30 miles off Myrtle Beach, tooling along at 19-20 knots on the approach to Frying Pan Shoals... That was a memorable day, we'd left Charleston for the run up to Morehead City, and the sea remained that flat for the entire way, just a hint of sea breeze finally started to kick in the last few miles out of Beaufort Inlet...

Plus, it was a Monday - that always adds a bit of spice and guilty pleasure to a day on a delivery... (grin)

Yup, those were the days, when we thought we were gonna live forever... (grin)

Fortunately, she's been lucky, so far...

Re: Clothing optional sailing

On our boat, crew can wear, or not wear whatever they like - except for proper shoes. We insist on protecting the feet/toes, and providing traction, etc. Might have to re-evalaute this policy vis-a-vis scrotum protection.

Two years ago, one of the regular crew brought his girlfriend onto the boat for the first time for a weekend sail. First words out of her mouth to me were, "I understand that nudity is permitted on board. I want you to know that I'm not cool with that." My response was nudity was not only permitted, it was encouraged and that I didn't really care if she was cool with it or not.

That was in the morning when the six or seven of us cast off. By 2 PM that afternoon, she was the first one naked and she stayed that way until we got back to the dock the following evening.
