I was going to suggest they wait for a stormy weekend and move into a tool shed. Leave the door open a crack to let some of the weather inside. Then, jack one side up by about a foot, so they sleep against the opposite wall. If they emerge in each others arms on Monday, they are all set.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

I like the oldie but goodie: Stand fully dressed in a cold shower and push $1,000 bills down the drain.

Re: Circumnavigation with partner

You need to have one captain to make the final decision in any situation BUT the captain needs to listen to and take into consideration the other person's concern. If your boyfriend can listen to your concerns and not dismiss them because he knows he is right, then you have a chance of succeeding in cruising. If he thinks you are "being silly" about your weather concerns or other issues, don't do it. If you can discuss how to do something or whether it is a good time to leave or arrive and then decide on a course of action together, you make a good team and a sucessful crew.

Re: Circumnavigation with partner

My ex-gf wanted to cruise the world but did not like the less glamorous part of boat life. We parted ways early, before I actually had to depend on her.
Man and woman need to be like two runners of the prairie sled - both strong and supportive of the load. That is a Shoshone saying.
