A freshwater shower isn't all that hard to fit in...if you're willing to accept a few compromises. If you want more info on what I'm working on, send me a PM.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

its a deep hook

I sense that any who have found the spirit to endeavor the water are drawn by questions such as yours.
Sailing whether on a lake or at sea is an endless process of learning. So learn and enjoy. In time your subtle enthusiasm will be appreciated.

If you want to sail with your wife, then ensure that it is a pleasurable experience for her. Sail together without the little ones as much as possible, then when of age introduce them slowly.
Be Competent! and then some.
If your wife is anything like mine, the comfort level is slow to come, but after all I’ve found a partner in all aspects of the dream. ( she's ripped due to old winches)

Senior Ernesto has altered this years dream, but we've learned that for us, the primary aspects of sailing are the dream, intelligence,preparedness and most of all flexibility. so loosen up, relax an enjoy the time you have on the water, eventually your wife will too.
