Mess in the crew mess

 Permanent link   All Posts

Wash up, clean up & put your coffee mug away.

How hard is it to clear up after to yourself? 

Why does every boat have a mystery slob(s) that leaves stuff out, double dips, spill things and generally stinks up the place?

I often joke about hiding a time lapse camera in the crew mess so we can catch our mystery slob(s). 

What does your boat do to combat mess in the crew mess?

It starts from the top, if the cap doesnt enforce, no one will.

Our crew mess is detailed once a week by a stewardess but cleaned everyday by the watchkeeper !

Oh my little neurotic yachties. I love the guys on the crew that are so type-a and think everything must be "just so." They are usually the guys running around labeling the "chamois" or "deck brush" with the label maker (as if we didn't all know what a chamois was) I guess you could always tie the bastard to an anchor and drop him into the deep if he doesn't pick up that coffee cup!
