I totally agree, certain members of my family
...erhem..have decided to hang a dingy from davits
connected to the solar
arch. Now everything but the dog gets stored in the dinghy
and the frigging boat sits on its butt in the water
. So unsightly and unsailorly. But despite a bunch of off handed remarks about it my "family member" refuses to lighten the load back there. He also refuses to remove the 100 lb bucket of misc nuts and bolts he has decided he must have with him at all times. Grrrr.
The world would be a better place if everyone just did what I said.
