Experience nice, but can train the right person. For now cruise the Islands, and cape cod. Looking for future voyage to Virgin islands and eventually Austrailia. Looking for a boat mate, lady who loves the sea as I do. Share some expense's.Looking forward to hearing from you, LAS
You know, when I first started Sailnet, I was pretty negative on a lot of these types of threads. I still highly encourage caution from both parties. However, after many years of sailing and being in different waters/places, I will tell you that I run across a lot of great women that are looking for a guy like you. Many will have had kids (or have), many never did but are looking for a different life, and some are screw balls that no one wants on any boat. You can generally spot the latter quickly.

I truly think that you can find someone that meets your aspirations here or other sailing forums. Even hanging out on the docks I run across them. I have found (sure to get me a good razzing from the group here) that after about 35, men often become the prey versus the predators. Of course, if depends on the man and if you look like Ernest Borgnine and have the temperment of a barracuda, good luck. But I think you came to the right place. WHy not Sailnet or related forum to find a friend to sail with you?? THis isn't facebook. If they are here, they have an interst in sailing, one would think!!!

I also couldn't give a crap about spelling. A misspelled word on sailnet doesn't mean you don't know how to spell. It just means you didn't press the spell check button. I misspellllll stuff al the time. No big deal. You can tell the illiterates without a spellchecker.

In essence, I wish you a lot of luck here and I wish the females looking for a sailing friend the same. My only caution to both is that 100 miles out, there is not getting off. Both parties need to be thoughtful that a boat is a committment, no matter your intentions. But in reality, we are all dealing with adults and hopefully are smart enough to know that.

Take it easy and the best of luck in finding a good friend to sail your dreams with. THat's what lifes all about. ANd my wife and kids made it a much better life than without.

Take care,

Brian


PS Degrees in Biology and Chemistry. I was there with you... nothing like being under a hood all day to take out the ole social skills!!!!!

Recently I had a dating site pop up while I was on Facebook . There was 10 profiles to peruse . Each one said they enjoyed long walks on the beach . So I made a profile & this is what I said : I would rather go underwater & f#$k a fish then take a long walk on a beach . I was raised by French women who sold me to gypsies as a child . The gypsies abandoned me to a pack of wolves . Most times after I spend any time with a woman....I really miss those wolves . Looking for a woman to sail with me & screw me til I'm blind . Prefer someone who speaks no English & has no idea what a shirt is for . I got 300 hits the first 24 hours . Here's the best part . An attractive 50 year old theoretical physicist familiar with this area & knowing it's a small island , just got in her car & drove out . ( about 2 hours ) Now this is what I have to say about sex in the V-berth.....That would have killed a normal man . The reason I relate this story is that it's real vague what you're actually seeking . This totally by accident was what happened to me . Hope this helps .
Well, I read this a few times and still am scratching my head. Let me get this straight: You wrote a comment like that which basically vilifies all women and 300 women in 24 hours were attracted by it and one even hopped, sight unseen, into her car with the intention of finding you because of this comment and happened on you at this island and had sex with you in your vberth? Really? I mean, really?!??

Sorry bro. GOtta raise the brown flag of BS on that one. I don't mind a good yarn, but not a whole sweater in summer.

If I am wrong, my the dating gods forgive me. Been a long time. Never met a woman that I would invite into my vberth with a line like that. I'm just sayin'...

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

I certainly didn't have any difficulty believing the tale. If we were sitting at bar with bev of choice in hand there would be no need to lie and no bragging allowed,I'd just start off with 'Back in the summer of '86' and tell you tales that would apparently curl your hairs.Sadly that was then and I seem to have lost my hearing. At least I no longer hear the sighs of nubile wanna be crew but hope springs eternal . ( 6' 7 , 230 lbs ,own teeth and hair, nice boat.) just in case.

Fortunately, I'm completely the opposite, so I should be in like Flynn, eh?

Wanted: sailing chums, gender of no consequence. Must have good taste.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
