I have a testimonial which says that I (Julian), likes things done his way. The writer agrees that since Tropicbird is my boat and my home that I should continue this way as my ‘right’, I make no apologies for the pun!
once I quoted the need for the use of coasters on a boat, (place-mats for under hot drinks and red wine glasses). First priority on any yacht is safety. If one uses a coaster then the likelihood of spillage of hot drink is minimized, the same goes for breaking glass. There is another reason (I can think of many) if I the yacht carpenter (or the previous artisan) has painted or varnished the surface under the drink container, no extra damage is sought. If I have to re-do work I am not progressing with the resurrection of Tropicbird. (See Ethos)
Seems like a little worry but it all adds up!
And that’s just drinking a cup of something I have special ways for everything!
Why would you not pick up scrap paper, plastic or any other waste from the cabin sole (floor)?
Would you just drop garbage in your house or apartment? I don’t think so. You certainly would pick up after yourself is you thought you might slip on it whilst sailing – safety first. Remember general good manners and respect. many people seem to think my home is an hotel with staff to act as their mother, it is not and I am nobody’s mother.
