Those 'Greatest Generation" guys really knew how to accessorize.
Did he have a mandolin in that case or was it to carry his machine gun?

Very good discussion!

I have had the Moe's surgeon carve on my face 2 times... actually tightened up the wrinkles (the only side benefit) and don't want to go through it again. A nice hat such as a Tilley is what I'm going for. Our yacht club doesn't dress up for events, but we attended one that did, (blazers and caps, white pants etc.). My wife bought me a yachting cap from Midway Caps. It might be passable after I beat it up for awhile (get rid of the shine of that pattent leather bill).

Been wearing this sort of thing forever
$5 at the local hardware
Rips the name band off as I walk out the door.



Personally, I get a chuckle from anyone wearing a yachting cap.

Get your bib-overalls at the same place and cut the leg off 2 inches above the knees? Save the part you cut off and use them as rags to wipe up the floor?

There is a serious side to this. Australia is the world melanoma capital. If you get one, and it gets away, you are in deep trouble, fast. The pink melanoma is often ignored, or not even noticed. And let`s not forget the more common basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Facial surgery requiring a flap graft,just to clear a margin of 1cm around a squamous cell carcinoma, is not nice.
Cover up,and use sunscreen. The Aussie "Slip Slop Slap" campaign -slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen,slap on a hat- holds good, and not just in Australia.

Blame it on our mothers. When we were younger we were almost stake out in the sun.

So true, kids were put in playpens in the sun.
Here,many of our ancestors came from England, where fair skin was fine. Here it doesn`t fare so well.
These days, we are advised to get some sun for Vitamin D production to ward off osteoporosis, so it`s a tightrope.I get annual skin checks, that`s common here.
Our marina shipwright just had 60 stitches put in his face during a second attempt to get clear margins. Brave guy, done in the Dr`s rooms under local! Not for me.
Prevention is better than cure,assuming a cure is possible.

Yes, I get an annual inspection.
I question the wisdom of doing preventative action now, the damages was done many years ago. But like many things, "At least we are doing something."

Hats?

I don’t do hats unless it’s raining hard. They look stupid when it’s not raining. And any hat looks stupid indoors.

Have I been seen wearing a hat? Ummm yea.
Oh yes .. straw farmer hats as per Simi 60’s hat. Wear them a lot when it’s sunny. It’s a cancer thing.

I think the Aussies lead the pack for skin cancer but the so cal beach communities are probably a close second. Same deal, people of European descent who are at the wrong latitude. The retired career lifeguards are now giving talks to the younger generation of kids entering the ranks and showing them first hand the results if they don’t pay attention to it.

These are the hats that stay on my boat.

Normally itís the UF hat or the FLIR (camo ball cap) that I wear.

If Iím out on the dinghy I slap on the boonie hat. The FWC hat usually is strategic.

Only this pink one from dwhatty.



Lost it once to Davey Jones' locker and had to buy a few replacements to maintain my sullied reputation. I found some caps online for under $10 and had them embroidered local shirt/cap/uniform shop for about $7 a piece.

Tilley for me, too.

Curious, does anyone wear the $30 knock off Tilley Hat that Bass Pro Shop sells? I tried one on, it wasn's as comfortable as the Tilley, even though they look identical.

So, that's how you do it. Personally, have used/given away up all my "The Coot" hats.
