    I think that would alert me to the fact that the captain is a fruit and I should find a boat with a less psychotic operator.

    There's a part of me that wants to hand out a banana to each diver when I go to Belize in March just to see what happens....

    ...but then I think I'd cry if all of the tasty bananas got thrown over or would have to go dive for them. Especially if they were dancing ones.

    Ya know, I have a couple of friends who are Captains and have licenses to captain any vessel of any size out there on inland waters...and none of them, through all of their nautical studies know about the banana superstition. They know of lots of others...but not the banana.

    Some types of fruit just do not belong on boats.

    Neat trick with heavy coat hanger! I'll try it, wiht a vinyl coated one that won't mar my counter top.

    As far as the flies, I stopped putting the skins in my trash where they waited until the can got full. Now I put them in a sealed container to be composted when it fills. No more flies. :cool:

    When I started my OW classes, the practice classes, I started with leg cramps.
    One of the instructors told me to eat bananas as they add minerals that avoid cramps. My own experience says that this is true.
    In the check out dive done in a ship off the coast of Brazil, there were plenty bananas for lunch and at every time we were almost pushed to eat bananas.
    Since then in every dive boat in South America I dove I could find bananas and they are considered the friend of the diver.
