    That is difficult to look at.

    note that the bowman is at the helm between races. We're crafty.

    Do we know the brand of that garment? "Underwear that never let's you down".

    "How in Christ did he manage that orientation?"

    Sit on the rail, facing inboard. Something (or someone) pushes you backwards. As you fall overboard, the cleat catches the waistband of your pants - you go, the pants stay. The only way out of the situation - besides sharp-knife surgery - is to dive straight down and slip out of the hung-up pants. Saw it happen from the helm of a sailboat once, but the unfortunate victim was a pretty girl. After she was brought back onboard, she retreated below, not bothering to retrieve the errant bikini bottoms, and refused to come back on deck even after donning her jeans. She had a nasty scrape on her backside and a major case of em-bare-ass-ment. Probably ruined her for life about sailing. She was pretty, though...
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    If you leave 'em in that position for a little while they stop kicking- well it seems to work with whales anyway. JayInOz
