Th last time I gave a banana to a myth on the boat.. she gave me a live bait. :wink: :wink:

I pray that one day God sends me a fish so big that, when talking of it...I have no reason to lie.

Apparently the way to lift a banana curse incurred when someone takes one aboard, is to juice up a fresh pineapple on board and mix with rum then drink it. I'll go with that..Add a tad of coconut milk and you've got a 'pinacolada'' 8)

The best trick is to hide two bananas on your competition's boat and tell them you hid three. They will tear their boat apart to find that third one, whilst you fish.

Ha Ha Ha Just joking fellas, my skipper in the top end would lecture us not to eat them two days before, seams they curse even if they are inside of you.
