I have, more than once, found myself in the middle of the Strait in the dark, with no one but Manana on board with me. Top that!

There was also that Leprechaun mocking you from the cabin-top winch....

Aren't hallucinations fun?

Didn't Mananananananananana once think he'd lost you overboard when you'd gone down for a nap or something?

I have only a few stories of significant mishap, but perhaps my worst experience is my co-skipper ridding himself of processed dehydrated "backcountry" meals on a windless evening in the middle of the strait. He had to keep the head door open because the smell was so bad. The very slight air movement carried it slowly back through the cockpit.

There is now a rule against the dehydrated food except for emergency supplies.
