Hey, DNG,

From your last 2 posts, it''s obvious there was a lot more to your story than what might have first appeared. I didn''t take your first post the way MaryBeth did, but I''m not seeing things from her perspective.

The horse story was funny - had me going there for a sec.

What was nice about this thread is that it could easily have degenerated into a shouting match, but it didn''t.

Fair winds to all.

Duane

Oh, DamnNice,

A "cowboy" is a guy who goes about sailing to his own ends. Beating his crew to death or ignoring safety needs, etc. I meant nothing about a horse, it''s a captain''s term. (Though I am also an accomplished horse rider since the age of 7. ). I quite often enjoyed beach rides in Little River, SC, where I used to live, and would often take my crew out for a ride when tensions ran high - if the boat wasn''t ready to go, or there were some paperwork problems, etc., delaying the departure. Was a way of bonding and having fun.

From the last few posts, seems I was too hard on you, poor baby. You should expect to be able to take advantage of a woman who knows nothing of sailing. I have watched too many women, tho, signing up for a class and learning that fending off refers to the instructor. Sorry if I was too hard on you.

You go guy,
Mary

I am with you Mary. Who wants inexperienced crew? It's not easy finding an attractive well rounded woman who actually loves the water. Tom.

Joining Seven Seas or any local type of sailing association that meets frequently may help you find a mate with similar interest. At the very least you'll be entertained with all those great cocktail sea stories. Just like anywhere else, you'll meet all kinds. Wish you the best in your search.

Finding a sailing mate

Some good ideas have been posted, though most of the Seven Seas Cruising folk I've met have been couples. Anyway, let me encourage you single ladies--and gentlemen.

I'm probably older than many of you and the pickin's seemed mightly slim to this lifetime sailor in search of a soulmate. But after meeting many frogs, I finally found my prince. When we met, we owned five sailboats between us. We still own four--three in NC and two in CA. And this fall, we're casting off our dock lines and heading as far around the world as we can get.

If none of the suggestions given here work, you might try what I did. I was VERY specific in the parameters I set forth. (For me, they were tall, Christian, sailor--I'm 5'11", my prince is 6'3". Yea! For you they will probably be different. Just figure out the things you really want and don't bother with folk who don't fit.) Just before I gave up the search (way too many frogs--most of them interested in groping instead of sailing), I tried a specific site and met someone I thought would just be a friend. After all, he was a continent away. Instead, we've now been married almost four years, and I never knew it could be so good.

Blessings to all of you and may you find the one designed just for you. It's incredibly fun when you do.

Normandie
