Another thread here got me thinking (and I didn't want to hijack)...

What fun terms do we have to describe the silly things that happen on the water...

Skiing has the dreaded yard sale, face plants happen in several sports, never good.

Maybe I'm having memory issues, but all I can think of for cat sailing is:

1. Tea-Bagging: Dropping the windward hull while trapezing, resulting in one or both crew getting dumped into the water.

2. Doing the Wicked Dick: Steering from behind the rear crossbar, yes it's wet.

What others are there?

Mike

I think the "endo" got borrowed from mountain biking - end-over-end or a wicked-quick pitch pole.

Boat bites - the mysterious bruises and small cuts that you have after a week of crewing... skippers never seem to get them. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Pickle stabbing...
Sputnicked...

"Tea-Bagging" has a connotation that should keep it out of the sailing lexicon. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

OK guys, this is completely pointless if you're the only one who knows what you're talking about.

What the hell is Pickle Stabbing??? Sounds like that has connotations far worse than tea-bagging...

Is sputnicked the same as a good Peter Pan?

Peter Pan is what I understood to be a widly known connotation for the flight one takes around the forestay if not using a chicken line and stuffs a bow.

people call our cat's "pickleforks" sometimes and when you put the bows down, it looks like your stabbing a "pickle".

Thanks guys.

Those "some people" are probably monoslug sailors who are just jealous that their boats can't MOUNT the marks and stay there like we can... <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Proper Mark Mounting = Getting the mark stuck in the square that is formed by the front crossbar, the two hulls and the bridle. Mounting is much easier (and faster) than dismounting...

Proper mark mounting requires the use of a bridle foil. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" />

Followed by "Mark Humping" as you try to bounce the boat off...

Cool "Park and Fly" but wasn't that determined to be photoshopped? You would think to pitchpole you would need to dig in the bows enough to trip over itself.

Still a cool pic.
