Default Topless sunbathing

My wife wants to lay out on the boat, but is scared people will see. I only fish fresh water and our lake has plenty of little coves to anchor in. I was just wondering who else here Wive's lay out topless, and if it has ever been an issue?

Not married and none of my dates felt like the urge to expose during the daylight hours but I do have a suggestion. Have her keep a loose pullover, or wrap around top, close to hand.

don't you boat on lake murray? in that case, there is a really nice cove, called hawleys creek at the upper end of the lake, I encourage anyone who has a hot wife/girlfriend/daughter/aquantiance to bring them there to sunbathe. actually, on murray this isn't uncommon at all, expecially on decent size CC's that have bow cushions. just keep them below the gunnels, and have their top handy, I have never known anyone to get in any sort of trouble because of this.

Are they goldplated, deformed or something else that will really make her stand out?

Policy here has always been to be mindful of where we are. If we are at anchorage, & arrived there first, then if any later arrival gets offended by the wife, or any other female, topless on the boat...... too bad. Go somewhere else.

We will usually seek out the more secluded or difficult to get to places or anchor a few hundred feet from the closest boat. If they want to get out the binoculars, well, enjoy. In my eyes he is still nifty at fifty but there are plenty better can be enjoyed on the sandbar.

What is the big deal? Appreciate & enjoy what is good. Try to understand the rest.

No problem in uncrowdwd locations, just stay low and keep a T shirt or something handy that's quick to put on. I wouldn't recommend nude sunbathing on the forward deck anywhere near land or other boats.

Just go to the Keys, plenty of topless chicks in many locations and boats. I once saw a guy bridge fishing, may he had tooooo much sun or adult drinks, but a large neat CC with 3 guys and a topless, very well endowed female were fishing next to bridge and trying to get a better look almost fell off Long Key Bridge, and I do mean it was a close call. But, I guess topless is in and fairly common in many places these days, and why not.

Tell her to stop worrying about it and just do it. We won't look. Honest.

Pics please. When you post them we as a group can help you determine how far away from other boats, etc. you would need to be for her to go topless. Without pics we are just feeling our way around.

I see 4 or 5 chicks a year topless out in LI sound. It's never a big deal, there are people on the boat with them and nobody but me stares, then again like me, they are all wearing nice dark shades

its legal here in many places as well. Its 100% legal on your boat as it is your house.

It's also 100% legal on the streets of NYC. Anyone can walk the streets topless, ride the bus or train topless, go anywhere in public topless. As long as they are not promoting something with paint or words on their body, they are free to let em dangle.

As for the OP's wife. Topless and boating are common. Yes, people will look, some may hoot and hollar a bit... if she's ok with it - so what. If she is shy, keep em covered.

And the fact that she is in public domain, and pictures may be taken and end up on the internet for life...

So that is the cove where your house is.

Ask her to assume she's out on the water and sees another boat with a lady topless on it.....or assume the next baot that passes has a topless lady riding by. Would it bother her, would it matter? Would you even recognize the person if you saw them again in another setting?
If the answer is "no" to all of them then she can assume that even if someone goes by and does see her they will get a quick chuckle and not know who she is either.

BTW: I've seen plenty girls topless on the water usually during events in which they know they will be seen........I don't see the big deal.

Many years ago before Al Gore invented the Internet I would have said go for it. Unfortunately, if she does, anyone with a high powered lens can snap away and she will have the pistures posted on you-tube within minutes.

When we used to travel over to the islands, my wife & I used to go to the French side of many islands and everyone there was topless. Not today....way to many folks with video cameras that post instantaneously, way to scary.
