Milly, There is an Associatioi that you might want to look up. It's the "American Association for Nude Recreation". There is a lot of information about the nudist lifestyle, and covers a lot of the laws. As was mentioned earlier, there are ussualy no laws against nudity. There are laws against "Indecent Exposure" ie a flasher.
I live in the Delta Area here in Calif., and there are actually a couple of tour boats catering to nude recreation. I really like your comment that you are not worried about being seen, but don't want to offend. That pretty much sums up most peoples attitudes.
In last years Ba HaHa Rally, one crew vowed to sail the entire Rally nude, and was succesfull.
Out on a boat, it's your world. Look around at boats around you, and without binoculars or telescopes, how much of them can you make out. They have the same view of you that you do of them. They might be able to see that you are nude, but they aren't seeing private parts.
I have a public park near by that I hike and ride my bike nude in. The Rangers know me, and have told me that it was no problem, unless someone actually ask's me to cover up.

I would not rely on this statement, as it is not correct, at least for much of the U.S. Of course, it's entirely possible you knew that and were indicating your belief the U.S. is not a civilized part of the world.

But in many, if not most, places in the U.S., being nude in public absolutely is an arrestable offense. It depends, however, on the specific wording of state and local statutes and ordinances. In some cases, "public indecency" or "public nudity" requires an intent or knowledge that others see you. If you're out in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, miles from anyone and you're nude in the (if you'll excuse the expression) cockpit or on the foredeck, but there's nobody for miles around who might see, you, I'd wager you wouldn't have a problem.

But if you're a few hundred yards off-shore and some old lady peeking out to have a look at your boat with her binocs sees you, there's nothing saying she won't call the police and they won't pay you visit and tell you to cover up. I know of such cases that actually have happened. Because there are too many people who can't stand seeing someone else having fun that they disapprove of and who see it as their duty to put a stop to it.

If you want to be nude go for it. I wont be offended unless you look like one of them WalMart photos that's floating around the internet.

Molly,

The mere fact you are asking the question in a mature manner suggests you are very capable of judging when it sensible to bare all.

Use your own fine judgement Molly and you will not offend

Hmmm... I'm new to sailing and was already intrigued by the excitement of hoisting a sail in a strong wind... Little did I know there would be other advantages to joining this community!! ;-)

Natural is not immoral! Who cares what anyone else will think? Do what is comfortable for you.

You already know this line; "If GOD meant us to wear clothes, we would have been born with them on". Last baby I helped deliver was all shiny and new and "buck naked".
