Well, living on a boat would weed out quite a few women...whether that's a good thing or not is debatable.

A lot depends on what the boat you're living on looks like. If you're living on a West Wight Potter 16, that's one thing... if you're living on an Atlantic 55 catamaran, that's another.

A lot depends on what condition you keep the boat in. Is it Bristol shape and ready to set sail, or does it have the decks cluttered with random crap?

I know there are women that live on boats, but as far as I can tell not in the numbers that men are in. There are a couple live aboard men close to my boat, and I've seen them with ladies a few times, but I wonder how women in general think about men that live on boats. I've been in and out of relationships with women over the years like most other men, but some how I think those relationships would be farther apart once women find out I live on a boat and not a mega-yacht. Naturally I wouldn't be happy with a woman that expected the mega-yacht life, but it would be nice to know as a man I wouldn't end up spending a life alone forever. Am I making any sense to anyone?

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.
