Re: Haircuts while cruising?
June does my hair and either does hers or exchanges hair cuts with another cruiser, invariably female. It is quite common for some cruisers to do cuts. We bought proper barber scissors and they certainly help.
We met one cruiser who was a professional hairdresser and she did cruisers' hair on a beach in the Caribbean (can't remember which one) and the locals got upset because of what they saw as unfair competition. She would have been better off if she did the cuts on her boat of course.
Edit -- I should have mentioned that June does a terrific hair cut. Not as fast as a pro barber, but very good job.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
