Ahem... This is my thread and if anyone should be sucking up to the good looking, charismatic, talented, and altruistic bunch who are the moderators here, it's me. I choose to stay above that kind of thing however.

Just remember... in the case of one certain, currently gloating, sunfried moderator it's 'Allegedly good looking'....

Re: *Thinking* about a bigger, better boat

Hah! You all had me going on the keel-stepped mast leakage being no big deal, and then I read the current thread on water intrusions on KS masts (rain water entering bilge thru mast.), and it sounds like a big deal to me. Not sink-your-boat big deal, of course, but we all work hard to stop water intrusion from ports and hatches and all, it's seems weird to give this one a free ride.

Ahhh... but the difference is the mast water goes into the bilge, to a sump and away... port leaks, chainplate leaks, etc damage structure, stain woodwork and cause structural issues long term... big difference!

Stop thinking like a guy and start thinking like a girl. . The goal is to get your wife on the boat, right? Men like practical things. Girls like pretty things. Girls like dressing pretty and they like it when someone tells them they have a pretty boat.

Sailing is always going to be a little like campinh. All things being equal girls much prefer to "camp" on a classic cruiser than yesterday's production boat.

We paid under $100k for our PSC 34. My wife fell in love with it soon as we stepped aboard. When I saw her eyes I knew we had found the right boat.

You know, this thread was going really well until the original poster came in and got it back on topic. Thanks a lot...

Re: *Thinking* about a bigger, better boat

My apologies. Now, back to business. Which moderator looks best in a swim suit?

Re: *Thinking* about a bigger, better boat

Sure, traditional spouses like pretty things, but they also like practicality in the things that they use and spend lots of time with. It's only logical for someone who enjoys cooking to be more concerned about the galley layout and function than some other features.

Re: *Thinking* about a bigger, better boat

Wasn't quite sure if shanedennis was joking or not--he's using a rather broad brush to paint a picture of what women want. My wife would rather have a boat she liked the look of than one that someone else admired, and she likes modern styling overall. Luckily, I do too.
