Sad to say, I've found that men tend to not take the female sailors seriously around here too often, unless they do something like get a captain's license or anything on that order. I've asked lots of questions & tend to get ignored, put down or otherwise treated like an ignorant ass for asking. But they'll let me clean their boats - yep, they'll take that. And they'll act shocked when I don't panic in severe weather.
As far as not posting much, I'm not on line much.
Have you seen my latest race write-up? Two very attractive, very able, very hard-ass ladies on our crew. And trust me...they weren't the quiet type.
