Well, when we got our first boat, I spent a few weeks with a pen and pad, and she did too. Then we compared lists.
She had list of well thought out ideas -I couldn't poke a hole anywhere in her logic. My list?
...I had a pile of sketches and some measurements (a) a battering ram for the front (b) where to put my rain boots and still be able to reach a cooler from the cockpit
, and (c) how to swap out the entire dinning area and benches to fit a pool table in
-who needs friends over when you can just shout something across the water and salute with your beer?
We had many years of nice, quiet social evenings around her dinette with friends.
...I still got to shout across the water, albit a bit more humbly.
