Don't ask your wife / SO to clean the galley.
I made that mistake once and will never do it again.
After a day on the water were I cooked breakfast, sailed the boat for about four hours, anchored in a quite little bay, and than cooked dinner; and my wife was just snuggling down for an evening movie, I made the mistake of asking her if she was planning on cleaning the galley and doing the dishes?
"Get me off this boat!"
"I am not your Galley Slave!"
The quite little anchorage was no longer quiet.

If a man is to be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most - E.B. White
