Help me to understand I have the following quote: "Basically my wife was immature. I'd be at home in the bath and she'd come in and sink my boats". How can i understand what's the sense of it?

This is a humorous statement. The idea is that the man speaking is accusing his wife of being immature (and therefore exhibiting behaviour and attitudes of someone younger than she is, possibly even like that of a child). He provides 'proof' supporting his accusation (the fact that she sinks his boats), but this proof indicates that he is perhaps the one who is immature. Taking a bath with toy boats is something usually associated with children.

This requires and understanding of women. Still working on that.
