There are a few women at my marina who own and work on their boats.

I'm old school and you just made me realize just how old school I am. You ladies probably know a lot more than I do about diesel engines, etc. Please accept my apology.

Been trying to sell a Lane cedar chest built in 1945. But I was thinking would make a nice dock box on the boat, maybe storage on the flybridge or
the rear cockpit.
This is solidly built.
Has an OEM painted wood grained finish, I could strip and finish with the cedar look.

29" wide length
28" tall height
17.5 " deep (from front to back)

My mother insisted on making me learn to cook, clean, do laundry and sew. Her exact statement was, "I'm not going to send you out in the world without being able to take care of yourself. Your future wife needs a husband, not an adult child, and she has no interest in becoming your mother. At the end of the day, she's not going to blame me for her problems with you"

I ended up taking Culinary Arts classes in high school and worked in restaurants all through high school and college.

We have quite a few female friends/family members as part of our extended family who do not cook at all or very very little. Many who don't sew. They all do a little cleaning, even those who have housekeepers come in. Only perhaps two who do no laundry. I know how to cook, clean, and do laundry, but not how to sew. Well, let me correct that. I did learn how to sew in a medical officer in charge class. I remember the instructor saying something like "it's the same principal as sewing fabric." My wife laughed. He stared. I said, "and that helps us how?" Then we got the "you've neither ever sewn?" by now the whole room laughing. Now, the last laugh came from us watching some of those who sewed trying to suture without using their hands but using a holder and forceps.
