Default Re: A banana question for the Cap'n

The bananas as bad luck has apparently been around for hundreds of years. A quick google search will bring up several theories. I don't like to take chances so there haven't been any bananas on my boat for a couple of years. Personally I find it much more ominous when a black cat crosses in front of my rig when driving to a fishing spot.

I've always heard that the reason is because on long, overseas boat trips that bananas emit something that causes other fruits/veges the rot as they ripen.
They used to have to bring enough supply for weeks to prevent scurvy.
I believe the term "limies" for English people is because they always brought limes over with them on the trips for vitamin C to prevent scurvy.
