Hardly. My wife is co-captain, and we went together over every system in our new-to-us cruiser before we mortgaged a paid-for house (jointly owned) in order to buy it.

Her only comment regarding the head was "nobody needs two heads on a three-person boat, and thank God this one has a Lavac". As it so happens, while the boat looks quite nice, it works nicer as a boat than as a display case for Better Yachts and Gardens.

Point of fact, I do most of the "nautical decoration" aboard, because she doesn't care much for that stuff. Today she was out buying two-part Endura to touch up rusty spots on the topsides.

So I say again: I don't care what your gonads are. If you are more concerned with decor than function on a sailing boat, I'll see you on the dock, because I sure as hell aren't likely to see you on the ocean...that's where the vases get thrown around.
