-lugging provisions down to the boat
-stowing provisions
-fixing lunch
-coming off watch
-plotting a course correction
etc...

Just because she is looking good, and bikini clad doesn't mean she is not contributing..

I sense an old assumption rearing its head here

Seems to me that a woman can kick ass AND look good.
