I don't often post to herSailnet (I'm not a 'her') but this pushes my buttons.
I've had more than one lady show up to crew expecting to be coddled and catered to. While I've certainly had some fantastic female crew those that expect something for nothing (I'm not talking about sex - I'm talking about pulling one's own weight) are a significant portion of the respondees to calls for crew.
When I go back over my records for crew on my boat and on deliveries, the proportion of no-shows and drop-outs among women is much higher than among men.
I like to think I'm an equal opportunity sort of person, but the numbers are becoming overwhelming.
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
