The can boiling is usually a winter occupation. In a small boat its only possible to stand and cook when its warm enough to have the hatch open.
In the winter at night its troglodyte time. A slow cooking porcesss is a great thing whne the gas cyclinder is so cold that its hardly working at all.
Jill will only come sailing when the weather is hot enough for swimming.
of course I am sure that if I did the sort of sailing where the two bathroom boat was almost permanently plugged into the lecy on a marina pontoon then she might come sailing more often
But having seen all those blokes sailing alone in their 33 foot lozenges.... maybe that plan does not always work.
lets face it - in most cases - its the bloke who is keener on sailing than his partner.
before some-one jumps on me for being sexist... pointing out that your own dear Cynthia is keener than you are does not prove a sausage.
