Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's Yeti cooler.
Thou shalt carry the groover on thy boat with a joyous spirit.

Thou shall not commit a dull knife.
Thou shall never give a dude an option.

Prior planning prevents poor performance.

Commit or Quit.

Heat dish water before the meal is done.

It's only money, you can always make more.

You learn very little when Plan A works out.

This is great advice. On a longer trip we were rigging and a lady who is a baoter with good intentions gets on our boat and says "I'll help... where do want this? do you strap this here? how do you normally do this? hows this go??....? My wife says no offense but we don't really need any help the two of us got it but thanks. Lady storms off all mad and I'm thinking WTF. She seemed butt hurt for a couple days, I acually had to tell her a couple days later its just easier without her and we have a method.

Never EVER have a shortage of beer.

Bring a spare everything.

Don't hog the put in.
Don't hog the take out.
