From Tainui’s galley it is a simple matter to toss orange peels, squeezed limes, eggshells and other biodegradables up through the main hatch and out over the side. Our deck is surrounded by two stainless lifelines. They are thin but strong. If you aimed for them when throwing from the galley you couldn’t hit them if you tried. But discarding is a different matter. Your missile virtually always collects one of them. This is a rule which is inviolable.
I do not understand what malignant forces are at play here, but the phenomenon is both perplexing and irritating.
