Hey Dave,
This was our "group entry" in the Sexy Legs Contest. He was crowned "Mr. Flamingo Legs". He went in with regular swimtrunks, but stripped down to the suprise ending! As you can see....everyone was in stitches!

Yes, the guy in my picture did the same for the belly flop. The crowd went wild and he was the hands down winner. He stood on the chair and then dropped his shorts.

I am sure the crowd went wild with the pink one too but not my color. 8)

I'm one of "those people" that has tattoos so don't think you will take my advice seriously but I think you would look good in just about anything, Dave.

Dave..it does not matter what you wear, it's who's around you..for instance, if you were standing in between two Victoria Secret Models wearing thongs, no one would give a damm what you were wearing at the pool and whether you won the belly flop contest or not (smile)

Also, if you would wear trunks made out of Gold American Express Cards, alot of people would find you more attractive then you already are..

You are at that critical age..women will soon find your sons more attractive then you

I am just not a speedo/thong type person. They always look too painful (Ha! Ha!). But agree with others, it is those around you that matter (and as long as the people are nice..and fun, then who cares). To each his own.

No, if the ladies can wear bikinis around the pool, why can't the men wear Speedos? Is the man's body any less attractive or sexy. I realize there are some women who should not wear a bikini and some men who should not wear Speedos but everyone seems to be grossed out by them.

I will have to put up a picture of my new Speedo and see what you think... I'll take some tomorrow when out in my boat. The Gulf temp is 87 degrees now so I shouldn't have to worry about cold water shrinkage.

Dave---while I do think you're an attractive guy with a nice bod, please NO SPEEDOS. I like the photos of you in your surf shorts best.

You have to also keep in mind, that the pic or .jpg that you want inside your post needs to be somewhere on the internet, that will be the url address you use. Feel free to use either the cruise gallery here at Cruisemates, or the other one for non-cruise related pictures, then give it a try by following the [img......If it doesn't work, post again and there will be plenty of help available, good luck.

Used to be you could browse from your computer but now they have to be on the internet. I pull most of them from my photo galleries.

I got some Speedo pics yesterday. Will post them once I get them up on my gallery. These are of the blue Speedo....

Cool thing about them is they have a double sealed ziplock pouch in the pocket so you can swim ashore with your money or cigs and keep them dry!

I am having serious technical difficulties with this one. When I rotate the picture it won't load in the gallery for some reason. Turn your monitor sideways and you can see it better. That big storm came up from the Skyway bridge and we got caught in the biggest storm I have ever been in. I felt like we were in the "Perfect Storm" and would end up on Gilligans Island!

Notice the shoes? They are Speedo also!

Tracy,

That was at Cococay last May. It was funny, a group of about 40 women who were on my Enchantment cruise in May '04 showed up on the Sovereign same time as me in May '05 because Enchantment was in drydock getting stretched. This women was kinda the leader of the pack and that foot hanging out of her she said was her husband who fell in got and stuck in there. Pretty weird if you ask me!
