Hmmm...another good reason, you never know what can happen on the high seas.

Maybe "Dead Calm" would have been a shorter movie...if only for an underwire.

My bras are so padded they qualify as a PFD. No free range here, I hate being called "sir".

Ugh, none for me if I can avoid it. They leave such horrible tan lines! :D

But seriously, I agree with the previous poster that it can sometimes be cooler with than without.

For me - I'm not talking shirtless, I'm talking bra-less. For hot days I usually find a thin, white cotton tee-shirt to be the coolest choice.

It may help reduce boat yard costs.......... just sayin.

Reminds me of a discussion on another board concerning sailing with fenders or bumpers out, we comfirmed that fenders no, but sailing with "bumpers" out was just fine!:D

Just be aware that cotton shirts, especially wet ones... provide little or no UV protection, and a really nasty sunburn can be the result. :

Sailing basics while at sea - "stow loose equipment". That goes for everybody and everything.
