Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

Francis, lighten up.... it's all in good humor. You certainly didn't offend me one bit.

How about:

Spell check! Damn, I knew I forgot something. My socks don't match today either. Smart is always sexy. Some days I'm smart, some days I'm sexy. On rare occasions I'm both.

Ok, I'm being an ass. Apologies, and good luck on your quest!

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

Also, first posts looking for a mate are always regarded skeptically...

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

Why are first post's for a 1st mate regarded skeptically. Took possesion of this boat last April 2011, been looking since. Someone gave me this site's address last weekend. LAS

This site isn't generally known as a place to pick up dates. Although I'm sure it happens once in a while. While I'm not on the market, I have met some fantastic people as a result of hanging out here. If someone gave you the address in response to you saying that you want to look for single sailors online, perhaps it was done as a joke (on us)? Because either the person doesn't know what goes on here, or he/she knows all too well.

Congratulations on your boat.

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

Live and learn. Really not trying to get a date. But I prefer a female sailing companion. And it was stated to share expenses. When I raced I had some female crew and they were excellent sailors. Also I was attacked by a drunken male crew member in Baltimore when I was bringing this boat to New England from Annapolis, do not care to repeat that experience. Just looking for someone that may want to go on an adventure. And enjoys the cruising life as much as I do. A lot of work to run this boat by myself, and extra pair of hands would be welcome. LAS

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

this makes sense to me- I prefer sailing with a female first mate as well. Especially since I can't get my husband to sail! good luck finding a compatible crew and enjoy your boat

Re: Female 1st Mate Wanted

Let's wait and see if CindyC responds (http://www.sailnet.com/forums/crew-w...ighlight=cindy).

She may have been scared off by the barrage of responses to her last post but if not, we could have the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
