Fix stuff, watch the world go by, read, doze. In that order.

Read or fish (sometimes at the same time), reflake the sail after my half assed attempt, swim, explore the beach or sex (sometimes at the same time ), clean, stare at the scenery or just vegetate.

Sex on a Minifish. Now there's an interesting thought.

How come when I read this "we pod" I immediately got a picture of a bunch of humans milling around together in the water? lol

Once we're anchored I like to watch the water go by, read and call my mom or daughter - just to brag that we're anchored in the river totally relaxing.


Now that we sold the Mac, gotta get a new boat so we can resume this wonderful relaxing hobby!

Always have the next boat lined up before the last boat is sold.

Add dark & stormies to the list and Sabreman has pretty much nailed it.

Re: What do you do when you are docked or anchored?

We once anchored, popped open beers and stretched out in the cockpit. Then we had a spider race: It so happened that the two nearest corners of the bimini each had a spider that started to spin a web at the same time. So we made a bet to see whose spider got done first.

Sometimes you just don't need to do anything.

Re: What do you do when you are docked or anchored?

Let's see the conjugation would be:
I pod
You pod
He, she, it pods...

I like the idea of spider races. Down here, if one isn't a tidy sailor, palmetto bug races are possible.

and to add to the list of activities--manicure and pedicure. Also, a haircut for the captain. He has to do his own manicure and pedicure, though..I'm not licensed for that.
