It's been a pleasure of mine for many years to know that my wife's most expensive outfits are her wetsuit and her foul weather gear!......priorities of an dedicated cruising woman. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

For us working stiffs, Stafford at JC Pennys has excellent mens shirts and pants. You can get a good high poly % no-iron shirt and pants with a good cut, good durability, easy on wallet.

I had a jihad on cotton, for the mentioned reasons but also to get more out of my laundry dryer quarters. The things I regret using synthetic for are sheets and underwear.

I've read this thread with great interest in everyone's point of view. In most instances less seems to be best. In my case, as an entertainer, I will be carrying a fair amount of clothing for my musical performances at various locations during the winter months. Hopefully, most of the performances will be at Tiki Bars and marina restaurants in the Florida Keys. Therefore, Hawaiian shirts, shorts and boat shoes would be the preferred attire during performances. However, there are times when I'll be a bit more formal, satin shirts, matching tie, black slacks, highly polished shoes and silk vest. (gotta look good for the ladies!) They'll all be in a hanging locker where they're somewhat protected from the environment. Other than the shorts, nothing is cotton, but ironing is still necessary to provide sharp creases and a clean, classy appearance. I'll have to check the resources again, but if I recall, Cabella's had a 12-volt steam iron available in one of their catalogs. It was fairly small, didn't draw a lot of current, and if you are ironing delicate, synthetic fabrics, you DO NOT want to use something where you cannot control the temperature with some degree of accuracy.

On days when I will not be performing, shorts, cotton/polyester mix shirt (preferably white or khaki), sandals and I'm a happy guy. I have a sign in my other boat from Jimmy Buffett's Margarettaville Bar in Los Vegas that says "No shoes, No Shirt, No Problem."

Thanks everyone,

Gary

I've always considered having a naked woman aboard to be good luck, by definition.

If it was the mileage I would be long dead. When I lived out west folks said that guys like me must have been rode hard and put away wet. There's a good song that I perform once in a while that says it all. YouTube - I don't look good naked anymore

Enjoy,

Gary
