At ASHO Day, the practice of dousing staff with a large bucket of water took the place of overboarding. The Commanding Officer Alan Prager once ordered Mark Hanson (a fellow Div II staff member) to douse my wife because she had overslept and was absent from morning muster.

Mark went up to our berthing space in the Cedars Complex at #606 Lebanon Hall, pounded on the door and waited for my wife to answer. Awakened by the pounding, and completely naked at the time, she opened the door just a crack to see who was there. Mark forced the door open, pushed his way inside our room and doused my wife with a three-gallon bucket of cold water as she stood there in the nude.
