Engineroom is fairly typical for a woman owned boat. They only care if something doesn't run or the electricity goes off. And then it's a mickey mouse fix. I had a yard, tried to avoid yacht work, but still saw enginerooms like it too many times.
My current boat's po was a woman. To change oil, it was drained in the bilge and pumped out on an ebb tide (in Canada). I also took out a couple 100 yards of wiring that went nowhere.

I had to watch this video twice to see what I missed the first time. I didn't see a "disaster" or "crappy" e/r, just the typical cramped space you get in those size boats of that vintage. A similar perplexing event happened to me many years ago in Kewalo Basin. Was my first time in that port, and I heard a weird crackling noise going on in the e/r. Thought it was an electrical problem but couldn't source it. Turns out it was shrimp under the boat.

Greetings,
Hey guys. Why the discouraging words. I couldn't see enough to pass ANY judgement on the cleanliness of the ER. Dark? Yes, but that's about it. Also keep in mind Ms. K is a new boat owner and IF you saw any disaster in the ER it was from the PO who most probably was a man.

WOW! Thank you for the encouragement ( not ) I have had this vessel for a few weeks and in that time have replaced the entire flybridge/roof while sleeping under the stars, re fiberglassed, painted, acquired more bruises than I can count. So when I have a light hearted moment to share-I will. Now the engine room inventory and reorganization is on my list, but obviously my leaks were priority. Your comments are exactly why I named my boat what I did...

I considered keeping the boat dry and installing the new upper deck a priority over a well kept ER, but thats just me.....

Ms. K. Good for you. Keep at it and ignore the nay sayers. It all takes time and I never doubted the ER was on "the list". Sheeps heads huh? I knew about the shrimp but...

My PO were a couple both man and woman. So sex has nothing to do with organization my dear....But game on when I finish ( and I have OCD ) we can compare ERs, smashing sexism is a hobby of mine. SMH

Wouldn't it be more productive and positive to offer her encouragement?

If the answer is obvious then couch it in terms not belittling her.
We do that to each other so she should be mo different.
Cant tell, she might invite you to dinner. SMILE

I think we all have more than one messy spot on the boat. LOL
In my case, my messy spot is the entire boat. Parts to do small project which remain "undone".

Mr. OD. "...which remain "undone". Hahahaha...."The LIST!"


Not being a cat person, what Ms. K. needs is a DOG!


Edit: Sheepshead are VERY good eating. Taste like scallops.

And the parrot tastes just like chicken.

Congratulations on all the work you've done thus far, and what in the world is a sheephead?

Greetings,
Mr. OD. I've heard some can't see my gifs. I can't see them when I log in with my I-Pad. but I'm fine when on my laptop. Must be an apple thing. Basically it said "you nasty" but I meant that in the nicest way...of course.
