    Not if you know how to administer an enema, for which you could use the spout of the teapot.

    Are you also averse to swimming in the sea or eating sushi?

    Eating says he, in reference to 'the raw, living, toxic biological soup' that is our digestive tracts.

    If it isn't, then I feel duty bound to point out to anyone reading it that it's a complete load of twaddle.
    Really? Is it pure, sterile, clean and harmless like distilled water? So what exactly did I write that is twaddle?

    If seawater had any choice it would be wise to stay away from the human body which contains about 35 trillion bacteria of varying degrees of friendliness.

    Raw - since when do you cook water?
    Toxic. Emotional claptrap. Distilled water can kill if you drink enough of it.

    Full of fish urine etc - more emotive claptrap. Look at toxicity and ppm.

    Fresh water is arguably more dangerous as it can grow seriously toxic bugs.

    Indeed. Many the salt water wash down I’ve had while sitting on the deck in my shorts. Given an extra bit of shampoo you can get a lather going too.

    Boogaloo. Plenty clean enough offshore to swim in,wash yoursef in, wash yacht with, flush head, wash up and sometimes cook.

    Something else Ive learned on dozens and dozens of offshore passages.
