The wife likes the bow seat on my rib.(apparently best place for a sun tan
She watches my facial expressions(apparently I have few, usually reserved for the bedroom department
One of these days I will take my 'poker face' with me and she how she gets on..!
On a serious note, I will 'try' and be the best helmsman, but occasionally things look like they are gong to get a bit 'slappy' and I usually shout 'WAVE'..
I find it best to do all the communication at the start, when everyone is getting on board.
