My rule when I'm on someone else's boat, I'll sit down, shut up and not do a damned thing until you tell me what you want done, explain it in detail and then show me at least once. And I'll only do exactly what you said, no more, no less. I learned this from a friend of mine that was a confirmed sailboat guy.

On the first trip out with him I explained my theory and sat down. a few minutes later he asked me to hand him the wind channel from under the seat I was sitting on. Well I looked and looked and didn't see anything that looked like it could channel the wind. Finally in frustration he reached in and came up with a WINCH HANDLE!!! Go figure..... My duties were very limited after that.....
