Rules of conduct in the boat that we like to respect
The board resources are limited, especially the WATER and the ‘ELECTRICITY, not waste them! You’ll find that while you soap your hands there is no reason to leave the open water, which to rinse the sea water from the body … it only takes less than that of the house! Pay attention to the lights on in empty car does not help anyone, and so on … Probably going home you will realize how much we waste resources normally.
If we are in port we can “squander a little more. If you smoke, do it, and downwind always open and do not throw the filters into the sea, put us a few years to digest!
If you do not cook, everyone will appreciate your offer to wash the dishes and tidying .. unless you have not asked the hostess!
If you can not do one thing not to do it before you have asked for an explanation, improvising can create problems.
