DEAR MISS MANNERS,


Last week I saw a couple in flagrante delicto on the 2am Discovery Bay ferry. What should I have done about it?


Yours,


All At Sea


Dear All At Sea,


Everyone is talking about this couple. Not least because their behaviour was an outrage. Nautical etiquette clearly requires the woman, having docked, to raise the 'Man on board' flag. Other ferry passengers could have raised the following genuine distress signals:


L: You should stop instantly


T: Keep clear of me


Z: I require a tug
