You know you've been sailing when.....

I know I've been sailing when I've put my hand in my pocket for loose change and tried to pay for my lunch with 2 penny washers and an M6 bolt...

:rolleyes:

When one knows the tide times down to a minute,

has sunburn

has a floating sensation in bed on land

and knows the radio schedules off by heart but hasn't a clue what's on TV !

You try and apply the mark room rules at a roundabout.

On the way home you have this vague sense that the dashboard on your car isn't giving you all the information you want - before realizing you were looking for TWS.

You walk into town to get dinner and get stopped by the police for carrying an offensive weapon - the leatherman on your belt. Thankfully he believed my story.

I'm guilty of all three of those.

Did that myself last week in Baltimore. Having been told it's against the law in Ireland to row ashore in your dinghy without a lifejacket I thought I'd be a good boy and follow the rules. I'm on my third pint of Guinness before someone points out I'm standing at the bar with a 6" knife on the webbing.......

You certainly know you've been antifouling when you attend a performance at the Royal Opera House with the wretched stuff in your hair.......

You wake up in bed and see trees swaying outside the bedroom window and announce, "the anchor's dragging!"

On another occasion I had come back from a long sail (I was working with a charter company) and my girlfriend at the time came over to my flat. I was fast asleep but talking in my sleep checking off inventory items on the yacht.
