Can't help you. I live with my gf, we sleep in a bed. A few times in warm weather we're together on the boat, things work out.

How to make a single guy's boat romantic:
1. Close the head door.
2. Flush the head. At least weekly.
3. Stow your porn.
4. Turn off the football game.
5. Open a hatch and vent the place.
6. Stow your underwear. even the clean stuff.
7. Cast off. Hanging out on a workboat quay ain't gonna get you bumping uglies.
8. Clean it up. With soap and water. If your boat smells like fish, your fingers won't.
9. Buy her dinner that doesn't come with a toy or in a bag.
10. Keep a bottle of wine on board.

That's what sailing is all about drew!

So, I guess the first question is, do you have sheets on your corrbee?

Candlelight, Motown, and booze can make a soggy refrigerator-box romantic with the right mix.

What's not romantic about a boat? You have got to be doing something wrong... Candle light, wine and a nice sunset at anchor - Have you not tried this already?

what he said.

Although I also get a clue from reading your question... something the effect of someone hating it? That's a reference to your girlfriend? In which case, this might be a lost cause. If she doesn't like the boat, she's not going to like being on the boat either.

BLJ makes some good points, but IMHO, you'll score more points if you MAKE dinner, rather than buy it. Learn to cook at least a few meals she likes... it isn't difficult and the payback is usually worth it.

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.
