How to keep the first mate happy on long cruises
I think I've found the secret to keeping a first mate. We all know how guelling time at sea is, but, I think I've hit on the answer for a happy and content first mate.
Upon hitting a harbor, with a cruiser's net, I try to find out which are the best spas in town. Usually 3 or 4 women will come on with recommendations, most times with the same name. and usually at a luxury hotel.
Myself in need of some muscle straigtening, we pack up for a hotel overnighter, she goes into the spa for a massage, algae wrap, followed by a cleansing massage, depilation, manicure, pedicure, sometimes a hair treatment and gloss (I just learned these words).
For myself, I park myself in front of the swimming pool and ogle with a neverending banana colada in hand. Straightens the muscle very well.
5 hours later, a beautiful, soft, woman arrives, smelling of jasmine and spice, and I must say, the happiest I've ever seen her, and can't keep my hands off her. All the arguements for the last 4 days at sea are forgotten, God is in heaven, all's well on earth,
The best thing about it, is that it's 1/4 the price as in the US or Canada (at least here in Mexico anyway).
So, cruisers, here's my bit of advice. Most women really, deep down, don't like being at sea for days on end. They've done it for you, now it's time to do something for them. Makes further passages more bearable..
This post is being emailed to all youze girlfriends and wives.
Just checking in.
