We talked a bit and he related his belief the neighbor on the other side of the finger pier was opening the head through hulls at night.
When there was a moment the owners and captain were on deck together I walked over. Told them “pretty boat too bad it smells like ****e”.
Hey outbound, you seem like a really reasonable guy in all the stuff you write here on sailnet, so I'm assuming that this interaction had some nuances that didn't come across well in writing. Because, frankly, telling a stranger out of the blue that their boat smells like $hit (when it doesn't) based on the "belief" of some other guy, and some observations about jewelry and clothing, does not sound like a very reasonable way to interact with others.
In any event, it really doesn't matter, I'm sure you knew what you were doing and feel ok about it.
