  1. Wow that’s an excellent post, can’t really think of anything to add! Hubby is very particular that everyone’s shoes have smooth white soles, so that the shoes don’t leave smudges and also that the shoes don’t have stones stuck on them that cause scratches!

  2. I always vet guests seriously now. i remember when we were tacking once and our ‘guests’ expressed being fed-up of zig-zagging and tried to order us to just “go straight” as they needed to get home now. I find that instead of inviting guests to a boat ride you should offer them a sailing lesson. I like the ones that have learned to tie knots before-hand or have done a competent crew course. Otherwise I just invite guests to the boat while still berthed in the marina for a gin and tonic.
