An accurate observation
 
Yesterday I was climbing all over our boat with McLube (the UK version of Sailkote), a dry lubricant for pulleys, hinges sail guides, etc. The kids were impressed and laughing about how I was spraying everything that moved (including the clutch pull knob on the engine shifter/throttle).

"I think Dad's having fun because of getting to use a spray can all over the place," my son said.

"No," my daughter said. "Dad likes boats because there's so many things to push and pull and twist."

I know the Centaur well. We even joined the Westerly association for a year to get the book and to research Oceanlords. Amazing boats, Westerly's.

Maybe have the kids do the McLube as part of their crew duties!
