Going sailing with a partner is a great test of a relationship - you can get
to see a whole other side of someone... and if it works it's much better
than hanging wallpaper!!! In my experience it's also an indication of other
activities that will work well

enjoying the same sport as your other half is very nice, doesn't anyone feel like they want something that is of interest to them not the other half?

Yes there's that aspect- you'd have to drill them first!

But do you trust someone who does not sail to pack away your beloved toy?

The best option in my opinion is if your partener / parent (in my case) doesn't sail, but injoys the social side then thats perfect: your trolly waiting for you along with food, then a long hot shower whilst your boat  is packed up and on the road trailor! if only it worked like that!

Loads of these posts highlight that the case is generally that the man
sails and the woman doesn't.

My girlfriend is a better sailor than me! Brilliant.

Not always true - depends on the partner/relationship.... and I have
experienced the definitely not a good idea and the brilliant
combination... so I would say give it a try, but if it doesn't work
try another option.

What puzzles me is why this topic is under repair and maintenance?
