the only reason i ask is that most couples that go cruising do need to have either person capable of single-handing the boat. there will be many times when cruising as a couple that you will effectively be singlehanding the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
