    I have made a Skipper's Decree that licking plates is actually "good manners" on board the boat. Also marking the cups which get filled with boling water saves washing up. Altho i do boil the cutlery every 6 months or so.

    Not at all the same, I do lick MY plate onboard as no-one else will be using till its washed up! As opposed to the licking of a utensil which can be transferred to others..
    To have a boat is not to have problems, but to find solutions..

    Certainly not, when the Chief Steward and the stewardesses are present. Wether or not it happens in the crews mess I wouldn't know!
