The Galley Wench (er, I mean Deidra)
This will only work if you have a label maker to label everything and where everything goes. Otherwise you will never find your stuff....or it will be in a tool box.

I think Marin should have his wife do the posting on "women only" .... and of course I shouldn't be here either.

I've been wondering what took so long for this thread to start. Why shouldn't the women (wife's of members and all other women) have their own threads and departments.

And we men shouldn't be excluded anymore than women should be excluded from general posting.

I'm all for the women but Marin telling us what his wife thinks and does is not the kind of involvement an even mildly liberated women would consider ideal.

PG do you find this amusing?

We tried that when we first got the boat. Very inefficient. We subsequently found that a much better plan is whoever cooks also cleans up. This works great.

I don't cook.

Eric it doesn't bother me to have Marin post his wife's thoughts. At least he talks to her. Lol. At least he's got me believing he does.

Matt and I tend to both cook and nobody cleans up. at home or on the boat.

Bess I agree re labeling. Nothing ever ends up back where it came from. Drives me insane. I really try not to let it bother me but it still does. I about lost it over the state of the tool box last weekend!!! Argh.

My wife has no problem telling me what she thinks. I suggested that she post her ideas and practices to the forum herself and she didn't stop laughing for five minutes. She has little use for the Internet other than research.

So you get me instead.

Some women may feel we men have ruined their thread.

2. Dishes, real wine glasses,- as I previously posted, I don't want to feel as if I'm camping out.

3. IPad and Laptop- again as Marin suggested, it's become an important part of our "electronics" on board. We can navigate (using Coastal Explorer and a gps antenna). We've cut down mail and storage space with the laptop and IPad. We pay all bills, receive and store all bank, credit card, insurance statements digitally. Anything with a manual is on our iPad in a .pdf format organized in IBooks. Before we moved aboard I scanned all my favorite recipes and stored on the iPad.

4.Sewing machine. Hadn't sewed in many years( and wasn't that good even then) but when we moved aboard I got a new Sailrite sewing machine. It's more than paid for itself in the first year. I've made sunshades for all the windows, hatch covers for the vberth and aft cabin door and lots of little things.

"Gee, I wish I...." had a washer/dryer ( our boat is too small but I'd love one).
Just lurking here as we haven't closed on our boat yet. Sea trial and survey were yesterday! Wanted to say thanks for the great idea of scanning favorite recipes. Had not occurred to me.

[QUOTE=Marin;151694]No freakin' way, mate. My idea of cooking is using a can opener. My idea of gourmet cooking is using a platinum can opener. T/QUOTE]

My wife's idea of cooking is pointing at something on the menu, This is why we enjoy coastal and canal cruising. There is always somewhere you can call ahead for reservations.

OK, OK... So I'm Late to the Party... But, don’t hold it against me... I really enjoyed reading through the posts.

Walt and Jennifer - - > Yes!! Bikinis... or none! You know me well! – LOL

Re boat duties – Do what is called for and smile-wide while doing – cause, you’re (we’re) one (some) of the luckiest humans on Earth. We’re all spending time on our own, individual, and beloved “Pleasure” Boat. Wonder what the stat is on that – 1 in ten thousand / 1 in twenty thousand??? I’ll leave that up to Marin and Eric to suss out that percentage of boat people – vs – non boat people. Can we spell LUCKY!?!?

My Linda is an exceptional chef – YUMMMMM! I often do good BBQ on propane Magma grill and make one hell of a sandwich upon occasion!! I have no prob doing dishes or anything else, neither does my Admiral. We always have snacks available and sweets per desire.

There are a couple things we don’t have aboard currently that we might like to use... but no big sweat, we’ve got it made with things just as they are! Boating to us is more fun and relaxation and enjoyment than can be found via any other activity- - bar none!

Happy Boating Daze!!
