Sailhog,

Thoughts of "tawdry, one-night-stands" is NOT the dream of every married man. I would venture a guess that much of this would depend upon the person to whom you are married to. In nearly a half-century of marriage the thought has crossed my mind on more than one occasion, but then reality sets in and many of us run as fast as we can in the opposite direction. Those that do not are usually guys that had way to much to drink, couldn't perform beneath the sheets if they wanted to, and wake up with someone that doesn't resemble the person they went to bed with.

Cheers,

Gary

Gary,
I'll concede that you're probably right on this one. I love my wife, but she's a five-hundred-pounder and only 4'6". She also has anger management issues, which has put an incredible strain on our marriage. If she could just put the cheesecake down for a minute and stop yelling at me, I feel we could work things out. But that doesn't seem to be in the cards. Best of luck to you!

S-H, that is just SEX, doesn't do much for the inner self! Knock downs come in life as it sailing, 'right' the boat(Life), and keep on sailing. My.02

Basic rule

You also need to keep in mind the overriding rule for those that live aboard or in a motor home. Once you have settled in, anything you bring aboard that you aren't going to consume HAS to be offset by getting rid of something or you will soon be so cramped you can't move.

Good Luck and keep us up to date with your adventure.

bobcat! nah i doubt you're crazy,at least no more then most of the rest of us but denise is quite right maybe what you don't need right now is to live a somewhat lonely existance on a cramped old boat,the sailing knowlege won't be a problem and you can learn as you go,i singlehand most of the time and i can tell you sometimes living aboard alone can be sometimes not so good but quite doable,best of luck

Current liveaboard, and I'm going to TOTALLY disagree with the cramped/lonely image. The marina and cruising communies are the most supportive and welcoming one I've ever been a member of since my college dorm. You'll have at least one thing (the love of boats) in common with everyone you meet, and if you want to start a conversation just ask for advice on [anything boat maintenance related]. Hey, this could serve a double purpose, increase your learning as well as meeting new potential friends. And, healing your injured soul may well be accomplished just sitting in your cockpit, watching the sun set. Good luck to you.

Bobcat, you and I are in the same boat...figuratively of course. I found myself exiting big mistake #3 a couple months ago. I bought a 36 Morgan that needs lots of work. I moved on board while she was on the hard. The third night there I was sitting in the cockpit enjoying the stars and a few Heinekins and talking to myself. I hear a voice from about 30 feet away " are you bored?" I almost fell out! Come to find out there is a guy in the same situation as us living in the boat next to me. We`ve become friends and I`m never bored or lonely. I cant wait to get "home" every night to work on something drink a few beers or just sit under the stars. And as far as inviting women aboard, It`s all in the wording...Wanna come see my YACHT? LOL

Hmmmm! There's a line I never used, but I'm sure it'll work.

Just substitute "It's cozy" for "its dark and cramped;" and present yourself as "independent" instead of "weird" and you've got your intro to her down pat.
