Re: Secret Pleasures Aboard Your Boat

As others say - fresh coffee under way - with the sun coming up.

Malt whiskey in hand, watching the last light fade in a great anchorage.

And the strange and interesting folks I seem to bump into.

Re: Secret Pleasures Aboard Your Boat

1. Sleep-overs! Cuddling at bedtime with my little boy or girl while my wife snuggles with the other. The third berth goes unused. Quality family time, enjoying while they let us.

2. Dark n' Stormys!! ( OK. No secret there.)

3. Doing nothing. Try it, you'll like it.

Laying back on deck on a warm balmy night smoothly underway with auto pilot & no traffic, gazing up at the canopy of stars after doing what comes naturally with my Sweetheart.

Re: Secret Pleasures Aboard Your Boat

Luckily noone at our marina seems to care about cockpit showers at all. The manager just advised to wait till after dark but with their big lights it doesn't make much difference. He's pretty cool. I don't have an indoor shower and no plans to install one so it works out perfect.
I have to also add to this list, minimal laundry to do. At least for me

Just wondering, are you saying a complete, in the open shower, or do you have a screen of some kind. I don't care what time of day or night, there are some things I would rather not see from the cockpit of my boat. No problem with a screen though.

Heh... now why do I think that depending on who was doing the showering you might be just FINE with seeing that from your cockpit....

Each to their own.
I guess living in a Marina & being advised to wait till "after dark" for the "Secret Pleasures" of having a shower in my cockpit would for me "not" be such a pleasure.
As a cruising type, living in a Marina with their big lights would not be my idea of what boat living is about; that is unless it was for a necessary & preferably very short stopover.

You're right, but let me know when someone you would like to see is doing it. There are a lot more "Oh MY eyes" than "Oh, My's".
