I think there is a factor you guys have not discussed. If your face looks like this:



I don't care how big your boat is!!

However, I have heard that TDW's sister is available!!

Most women want stability. I wouldn't bank on finding a girl who wants to cruise. Better to provision some "wenching money"... yarrrrr

Reminds me of a Jolly Roger's song:
A girl in every port... is the call of the sea
But a port in every girl is why it's a pirate's life for me!

I wonder if it is a gender thing. About 10 years ago I cruised on the Great Lakes with a guy that I was dating and he paid for everything. But then that fall on a trip to Chicago when we decided to take my car instead of his at the last minute, I ended up paying for everything because he had accidentally left his wallet in his car.

I was raised to be financially self-reliant and would be uncomfortable if I didn't contribute within my means. I think I'll ask the same question over on the women's forum and see what other women think.

Holy crap. Is it really that bad out there at this point? Hopefully there are more straight sailin' dudes out there than you think. I can vouch for at least one.

To me it's not the meeting part that's the deal killer - it's the shacking up in 150 square feet of hot, cramped living space for a long time that might cause the shine to wear off a bit in her mind. It's all fun and games on the deck - but humid love in the v-berth is not for everyone.

(PS - CD, I threw up a little when I saw those pics. Ouch.)

I made that point myself over at SeaKnots.
Yeah - but then it turns into a race, you start hurling competitive insults at one another across the water, and someone gets t-boned. I ask you...is that really dating?

Please check the following systems for proper operation.
  • Fresh water
  • Hot water
  • Shower
  • Head (does not smell)
  • Stove (works right, does not flare up smoke etc.)
  • Engine (exhausts outside)
  • Door on head
  • Door on vberth or other private space
  • Refrigerator (For short periods of time you may do with ice if you hide the process)
  • Bilge (No smells)
  • All lockers (No smells)
  • Galley tools that are clean and work
  • Galley towels, cleaners soaps etc.
  • Head towels, cleaners, soaps etc.
If you pay attention to the above items you may get your lady friend to visit the second time. The more of the above that are ignored the more likely she is to figure your boat is unsuitable.

Now about your attitude aboard that is a separate subject.

Actually I read about a married couple that cruse together on two different boats.
They met after cruising separately for many years neither wants to give up their boat.

Rent or Lease?
