Rainlockers were designed by an undertaker who buried Munchkins, or some bastard who turned out phone booths for the relatives of Snow White's dwarfs! You had to Vaseline your butt to turn around in one of the sons-a-bitches!! Water squirted in your ear at the rate of a blue jay taking a pee and the Boiler Techs in the Engine Room who made the freshwater, would threaten to kill you and all your unborn children if you took more than sixty seconds to satisfy your immediate personal hygiene needs!!!
This was just enough to satisfy the sizable mildew crop in our sour towels!!!
When making fresh water, the evaps produced heat at twice that of Dante's inferno, which in turn produced hot, sweaty, foul smelling Crackerjacks! The ugly bastards down in the Engine Room kept watch on the use of fresh water tighter than parents keeping an eye on their seventeen-year-old daughter's virginity!! You could take a quick 'douche-down'… A birdbath for armpits, face, and that was about it!! Going without regular showers was one of the rough adjustments you had to make in the ol’ Canoe Club!!!
