Re: What rules do you have for guests aboard?

"What rules do you have for guests aboard? "

One of the main reasons I have my own boat is not being bound by the rules of someone else (enough of that onshore ).


Not to say that many of the rules mentioned here are not very worthy blah blah blah.

I think that's a great start on rules, but I do not require everyone to cook. My galley is small and best used by someone who likes to cook. in addition, I like food that is actually ... edible.

So we assign responsibilities according to each person's strengths and weaknesses. On one trip one person really didn't like to cook at all and she did all the clean up. This was good because she figured out ways to use the boat's water economically.

Re: What rules do you have for guests aboard?

This is a great thread and I will go through it thouroughly later.

I love the hand held bidet. I use to have uterin fibroids that caused heavy bleeding. It would have been quite handy before my surgery even here at home! I will have one in each head for sure and everyone who comes aboard will have a demonstration of how it works!

I don't know if this has been mentionned but perfume will absolutely not be tolerated on my boat. It is the best way to make people sick.

Good point. I guess the concept I am giving to each crew member is that everyone is required to pull thier weight equally. And yes. using peoples strengths is high on the priority list. Keeping the cooking rule "somewhat" flexible will be good for everyones tastebuds

No drugs you don't intend to share and no children under the age of consent.

Looks like a good list to start from. Thanks. It'll come in use.

Because of the increased risk of drowning , with the added weight of wet clothes , women should wear little or no clothing aboard . Just for safety ya know

Exactly. Everyone pulls their weight.

Re: What Rules Do You Have for Guests Aboard ?

no one has mentioned scheduling. With us the guests have ONE choice for schedule. They can pick time, or location, NEVER both!!!!!!!
Other than that we never have more than three guests on board, and they are informed that this is not the "Love Boat" and they will have chores while aboard.
And grumbling will not be taken lightly and will insure no invite back!!!!!!!
They will be expected to listen to what I say and react accordingly, and expeditiosly. I tell them if they don't listen, and react, it could be a safety of vessel or crew issue

Re: What Rules Do You Have for Guests Aboard ?

Rules - "it's my boat and my rules"

Everything else are instructions. If you don't like the instructions, see the rules!

2. The rules don't go down easier later. Start the process of the big ones before the trip even is solidified.

3. Be explicit with using the head. Boats heads and people that have never used one are difficult. They get too embarrassed to ask and their bladder gets too full not to go.

4. People don't mean to be a problem even when they are. You still don't want problems.

5. You need to write all the rules down at least for yourself. It's easy to forget that one thing you know you never are supposed to do
+1 on writing them down! I write as though I were leaving the guests alone on the boat, I try to keep it light hearted with lines such as
  • If you see a fire feel free to put it out
  • If you see the "regular" crew donning life jackets: do the same!
  • The head (marine toilet) will choke on a matchstick; if you didn't eat or drink it last night, don't flush it this morning! (Note: the first person to violate this rule is immediately and forever designated "ship's plumber"
Be creative, write them all down, and insist on their use!
