With the winter holidays just ahead you may have more visitors and boat guests than usual, especially if you are in a warmer climate than your friends and family. It can be fun and very rewarding to share sailing adventures and downtime with loved ones. It is also more of a challenge than hosting house guests on land. Space, power and water resources, among other things, are usually more limited.
