Naked guy loves to boat "unrestricted" on Sarasota Bay

If you're fishing or boating on Sarasota Bay, be on the lookout for a man in a white runabout with a Coke umbrella on the bow.
Chances are, he's naked.
I've seen the son of a gun twice in the past year. And, believe me, it's not a sight you relish.
I saw him last week near White Key along the west side of Sarasota Bay. I was poling along in front of the key in search of redfish when he motored onto the sand bar that runs about 100 yards off the key. He anchored the runabout, then hopped overboard.
"He doesn't have any clothes on," I said to myself.
He was buck nekkid. Naked as a jaybird.
Apparently, based on my two sightings, this guy loves to enjoy Florida "au natural."
I don't really care, but what if I had young girls out on a charter? Or young boys for that matter.
I contacted the Longboat Key Police Department and asked for the marine officer. I was told he had the day off. I was transferred to his voice mail. I left a message and reported the naked guy's boat number. I also left my name and number.
Never heard from the LBK cops.
The naked guy's probably still running all over the bay, feeling the breeze like no other.


  1. What if you DID have young kids with you? It's just the human body. As long as there was no sexual connotation to his preference for the 'threadbare' look and he was being reasonably discreet, I wouldn't have given it a second thought. Naturism and perversion aren't synonyms, whatever some people might tell you.

  2. Oh my. I'm not going to make a statement on the moral (would that be the right term) standing of this. I'd be more concerned about all of those toothy critters swimming about. Hope for his sake he keeps his worm out of the water.

  3. Taunted,

    I respectfully disagree. If the guys wasn't to go naked in his home or on a nude beach, sobeit. But not out in public where people who may not want to witness him may pass by.
    It's not legal anyway.
