Interesting thread.

I have no rules. I'm more a reason and common sense kind of guy. If you don't have either, you probably won't be aboard anyways.

PS: Red wine welcomed.

Exactly, only a-holes are allowed to be towards bowl. Kind of a double entendre. Sit down to think about it.

Nope... Same here. I have spilled my share of it on the inside and the outside and I defy anyone to show me where. What's my secret? Beats me. We (and when I say "we" I mean "Bess") washes it regularly and it seems to just go away on its own in a day or two. No harm done and no special chemicals.

Mine are simple and to the point:
  1. This is not a democracy- there is only 1 skipper on board, and he ain't you.
  2. Lifejackets are located in the flybridge storage lockers.
  3. There is zero tolerance for illegal drugs onboard.
  4. If you have a question, ask.
  5. One hand for you, and one for the ship. If asked to help, please do so.
  6. Enjoy yourselves!

We host a fair number of cruises with our yacht club and various civic organizations, and have never had a problem.

That makes perfect sense, is direct and to the point. In the event of a violation of Rule #3, I can see tossing the contraband overboard. But red wine? That's sacrilege in my circles and could very well lead to a mutiny.

Al, I always give a pre-underway briefing before we leave the dock, unless it's just Kathy and I- I make it clear that there is zero tolerance. The other part of the zero tolerance is a report the the USCG and local LEO if contraband is discovered onboard once underway.

Red wine is a staple onboard Pau Hana- we never leave dock without it

Wow, I knew as soon as I posted that rule about red wine I'd be taking some hits for it.

Part of the reason for the prohibition is that we do several charity cruises every year. On a couple of them the guests bring their own wine. Lots of it, and a few have gotten pretty looped and several glasses of wine have been spilled. Fortunately it was white wine so no harm, no foul.

Here's what the salon looks like....




If someone spilled a good Cabernet in there I don't know if Wine Away would make it all disappear. I'd rather not have to put it to the test. This way, nobody has to be embarrassed about spilling a glass of wine.

Wow. I guess I see your point. It's like being in a can of whip cream with throw pillows. Although, TBH, the dumping out and not inviting back read on a forum post as a bit rude. Still, I won't pretend to speak about the relationship you have with them. They could be dickhats that you weren't really that friendly with anyway.

Moving on.

My rules are---

1) Welcome aboard!
2) <see Rule #1>

We don't play the captain game and therefore I rule this craft and my rule is law. This is a toyboat and Bess and I are a doing this for fun. If people want to pretend they are in the Navy and play the rank thing, go right ahead. I think it's kinda cute.

As much as I like them, I do try to discourage it as well. I'm afraid they may not get along with my bilge pumps.

I’m just about the easiest going, most fun loving “Boat BOSS” any person on a pleasure cruiser will ever meet ;-)

I CLEARLY EXPLAIN to any person newly aboard (usuals aboard that I know well already understand how I handle things):

ART’S BOAT RULES

1. Do you SWIM WELL? If not wear a pfd whenever moving around outside of boat interior; when boat is not moving and sitting outside in a secure, confined location pfd may be taken off but kept readily available.
2. Do you WELL UNDERSTAND BOATING and are you at least TWO (2) YEARS EXPERIENCED in pleasure cruise boating? If not, whether you can swim well or not, whenever boat is moving sit down inside boat or sit wearing a pfd on flying bridge.
3. Understand that you will NOT TAKE ANY ACTIONS aboard except as you may be TOLD TO DO SO by me if I need assistance. If you do not understand this rule then you cannot accompany us.
4. DO NOT do anything to or with any portion of this boat unless I explicitly instruct you to do so, and, feel free to ask me questions about any portion of this boat or cruise. Understanding and following this rule is very important.
5. ENJOY EVERY MINUTE of your time aboard! A most important factor/rule!

I have printed cards of this that rest alongside salon helm. Copy is given to each new passenger; then, they and I together carefully review 1 – 5... for aid to their ongoing comfort, full understanding, and enjoyment.

Then we go play!!

Happy Boating Daze – Art!

I only have three:

1. Keep the boat in the water
2. Keep the water out of the boat
3. Keep the guests on the boat

Wow GFC that's a lot of white. Acquaintances with red wine would make me nervous in there too. Wine away will get it out, but you'd probably be buying it by the case! So I fully understand your rule now!! I'll bring the champagne. Cheers.

I like the one about keeping the guests on the boat and the water out. Though you phrased it much better!! Reminds me of "I'd rather be on a boat with a drink on the rocks than be in the drink with a boat on the rocks".
