Snap.

Sunny holiday days with rugrats and wife with food and some animal/scenery/house watching, pottering and/or just on the plane.

Then cruising in full gear with a friend when I spend some brownie points enjoying the sea.

I picked my wife after several years of auditioning.

So she enjoys the same hobbies / activities as me. In fact she pretty much chose our RIB when we were at the boat show last year.

So she will come out with me probably every time.
