My wife just said this to me: "We need to fluff the spinnaker."

Me: "Huh?"

Her: "The cat has been using it as a cat bed, but it's starting to look matted down. I think we need to fluff it."



I think she was being genuine, although maybe this is her subtle way of telling me to get the sails out of the bedroom....

Dude, if she's noticing sail shape in any form - just roll with it. Say, "Wow, I hadn't noticed. Good catch."

I know, right? It's almost like she's taking an interest in sailing!

She's always enjoyed the post-sail cocktails, but this is the first time she's commented on sail shape.

As long as she knows what "fluffing" is, you're in good shape. :D

ME: "Well, okay, but the sailmaker says to do that properly takes at least 5 hours sailing in temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Guess we'd better head for the Florida Keys."

You can't fluff a spinnaker, once they have been packed down they are done! You'd better order a new one!

I can't say that I can blame the cat, they do make comfy beds in a pinch!

Hey Sloop ..... I hear that Viagra rendered fluffers redundant.

I dunno - from what I understand, V is like gas in a car - you still need a starter. :D

Full disclosure, I do not speak from experience.
