Is there a rule
I.e., many have heard of the no bananas on board, be it just boating
What about ex-wives aboard?
Son recently graduated from SMU with MBA; his mum comes to town to visit. He is looking to entertain her and asks if he can bring her out to the marina for an afternoon cruise
. The new wife is quite okay with this as she, the ex and I get along appropriately (been divorced for over 20 yrs from the ex).
First the SeaRay AC will not start. Port carb decides it's time for a rebuild
. Or something. Okay, let's just all jump on the express cruiser
. Had a beautiful sunset cruise
on it the prior evening... Make it out of the marina and the starboard water
pump decides to quit. Seriously? Limp back in and try to make the best of it and just hang out on the dock
for the rest of the day (we are the end slip and candidly, that in itself is not too bad a place to have to enjoy the water).
After moving everyone's gear
and lunch back on the dock
, my nose starts bleeding, pretty heavily I might add, out of the blue. WTH?
So I ask all the salts on this forum, young and old- did I break some cardinal rule
about approving of an exwife on a new vessel? She was very nice the entire day and never once did I feel daggers being thrown my way. Or should I have?
