Re: Do a Post? Or clean the Heads?

Head check:
Any critters buzzing round? NO.
Any creepy crawleys moving round? NO.
Does the pong knock you off your feet when you open the door? NO.
Do the visitors of the female variety stick when sitting on the head? NO.

Head check completed according to Standards of Bachelorhood Ver 2.3.

You may now get back to typing.

Re: Do a Post? Or clean the Heads?

A self cleaning oven seems such a waste. It's easy to ignore a dirty oven. Now a self cleaning bathroom would be a thing of beauty. Much harder to ignore when it's dirty although you do only have to think about it occasionally. Inventors are such a lazy lot, never taking on the difficult challenges in life.

They stuff the lee bow and over she went, but not without trying to right itself a few times.
They dumped the spinnaker sheet, but the main was sheeted even after the crew crawled over onto the bottom.
I think I can get a link for the stills, and if I do, I'll post that.

Re: Do a Post ? Or Clean the Heads ?

Hey Mark, get a grip will ya - surely cleaning the heads is only a recent addition on the "to do" list; there is still the companionway treads to sort out and they have been on the list since 2009 (August was it?)

OMG, perhaps cleaning the heads was on the list before then; if so then I gotta tell you, your life is falling apart since Niki disembarked......

Re: Do a Post ? Or Clean the Heads ?

This whole thing gives light to the difference between a cruiser and weekender sailor. :-)

Cruiser - do I fix X or do internet stuff
Weekender - do I fix X or go sailing
