Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Hiring testosterone is always an option... and by the same token I've been asked to run wires, install tachometers and such in those tiny places a male simply won't fit. Because I am not afraid of heights I've done quite a bit of work from a bosun's chair (actually a climbing harness because to me it feels safer/more secure) -- not because the fellow cannot, but because I like to see the world from up there and hauling me up a mast is a lot less work than someone weighing a couple hundred pounds. It's a part of the life. Some things I can do better and other stuff not so much. That's when it's nice to help and have help. That's what boat folks do for each other.
