I'm anal and I ask that those who sail w/ me do things my way. When I sail with others, I do it their way. Reason: it everyone on board does things the same way you know what to expect. When it's dark and scary on the foredeck you really don't want to be figuring out how the last guy coiled/cleated/stowed the main haulyard. When you're stressed "patterns" of how you do things rule. Always do things the same way and the "patterns" will be your friend, not a source of confusion.
