Chick Tips!

I thought it might be fun to share tid bits of ideas we ladies have come up with. After all, it's usually the little things that make us smile. It can be anything from time saving tips while cooking in a hot galley to sewing tips. Here's one ... I don't consider myself as overly modest. You really can't be if you shower in marinas without private showers. You step out of the shower and dry off, then wrap the towel around you. And you know how it always falls off as soon as you raise your arms?! After you use your wide tooth comb to untangle your hair. Then use the comb as a clip to hold your towel. Overlap your towel around you then, slip the comb, between two teeth at one end of the comb over the towel -then again at the other end of the comb. It clips your towel around you while you primp!

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.

This really ISN'T a test to see how many males hang out in the Ladies room!
But an effort to get women more involved. So here goes another shower tip.
Men do not care where there feet are standing! They can take a shower and step onto a slimy floor and slip those wet feet into "use to be non smelling when bought" shoes. But ladies care...so I take along one of the 99 cent rubber like placemats to the shower. Nice non slip place to put my clean tootsies. Dries quick too. I do use a different color than the placemats for the table!

Ok here is mime. Head/ Shower area
Tip #1 Those of us will long hair or just plain loosing it, I put a stainless strainer over the sump inlets on the boat. After cleaning out the pump once you will appreciate it.
Tip #2. Only soft liquid soap on the boat is allowed. No bars period. Keeps out soap scum build up on the hoses and shower/head area. Also keeps out soap build up on the sump pump too.

Melrna, thank you! It's never dawned on me about the bar of soap and scum issues. Out with the bars! This is a bit on the gross side, but I try to "clean" out the head holding tank once a month or so. Have it pumped out, then fill with water and a bit of soap-rock the boat back and forth, then have it pumped out again. Remember how hard it was to wipe clean those baby bottoms when changing diapers? How do you get the sides of the holding tank "clean" before pumping out? Is there any magic soap? Even the holding tank treatments don't seem to get that off.

Holding Tank - Depending on use, Pressure wash it once a year if one has an inspection plate. I plan on pressure washing the boat once a year, bottom, thru-holes, bilges ( if necessary) and topsides along with the water and holding tank. Water tank might not be necessary since I live on the boat and drain the tank once a week.

Water - I use a whole household filters that gets most of the yuck out of the city water supply. I went to Home Depot and made a rig the attach's directly to the garden hose and my water tank, It lives in my anchor locker when not in use. Total cost $ 35.00. Price of filters $18 for two. The ends are capped when not in use. It is a pretty cool set-up.
