Does removing the ledges solve the problem or do they accumulate on the floor?

I see you have experience of the female of the species.... any horizontal surface will be utilised and covered in scented oils, salt and small candles.

That's why it HAS to be a monohull and not a catamaran. I need my surfaces to be non-level as often as possible.

One can only capitulate. C loves her colognes...lot's of pretty bottles and smells. Since no is so seldom the right word to choose it is best to be strategic.
In this case I had a narrow secure little shelf beneath a port in our "stateroom" so I put up a pair of bronze shiva mermaids hung some velvets and satins and sashes and got all the pretty little bottles all to fit. It's been dubbed the "colognery" and Manages to look pretty cool.
I get the dang colognes secure and out of the way and she gets a cool little place for all of them.
I still won't let her buy me any Hugo Boss... told her I'd much rather have my old sailing shoes re-soled... that went over well... "those 'funky brothers'!? You need to throw those away! What is it with you men?"

Time will tell eh Zee ? As it will regarding her other landlubber ways.
Shore side I like a very feminine woman but on a boat my dream grrl is in dungarees, a flannel shirt, and hair in a bandana with a smudge or two across the cheek for good measure... It's a conundrum it is!

lol i found out the ALLEGEDLY injured crewman is merely a liar and is much the way of men to women-- they cannot say honest things to the females-- what is that all about/?is the one fastest way to kill a friendship and partnership. how is one able to trust life and limb to another when that other has been a liar and found out to be same??

Sort of a broad stroke you're painting men with Zeehag. I'm sure you'd prefer we didn't characterize you as the same as all women, yes?

i am trying to be specific, and without naming names.-- there are males and there are MEN.. same with women-- there are females and there are felames.there are friends and there are liars who sabotage friendship--i refuse to have any one who is a liar as a crewman as there is no trust once anyone has lied. i dont care WHO ye are-- male or female... liar is a liar and hasnt any real basis for trust. they belong in the same grouping with cheats and thieves. not all men are liars.not all women are same same--lol-- but all liars are same and so are cheats and thieves.
answer is dependent upon which grouping one falls into. i am not able to trust life limb and home to any liars. thankyou.

It may be difficult to trust others, if one doesn't fully trust oneself.

i thought i had a perfectly good sailing partner--- then now he is turning into someone who isnt able to tell truth-- i have known this particular man for almost 2 yrs, sailed with him for almost a year-- only to learn of lis now--i can no longer trust him---i donot understand why some folks have to do this kind of behaviour-- it isnt right nor is it the behaviour of friendship.
