slept on my boat for a couple of days 2 wks ago
it was blowing pretty hard those days(and nights).
try as i might, it is hard to get past the etiquette aspect alone. you secure your halyards for safety and to maintain calm in the marina. period. i think some is ignorance, yet, if the owner is an "all about me" type, it really doesn't matter.
not that i would ever suggest boarding another's vessel (and letting the shackle go to the masthead
), but mention it to the yard guys..ask them to secure the offensive halyards.
then at night, all you hear is the tranquility of the water.
By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest,second is by imitation, which is easiest,third is by experience, which is the bitterest.
