Given the choice, I''d pick the ravishing, willing to learn female crew over the experienced plain jane crew for cruising everytime., but then I''m just a man. Racing being what it is, priorities change, plain jane would top the list. .... Oh! oh! Did I just open up an explosive can of worms?

Ahh, but what if you had the ravishing female, willing to crew or cruise, and with the know-how? Would you be intimidated and take on a less attractive, less knowledgeable female crew so that you could "teach" her"? This is what I mean when I say that looks should not matter. I have lost jobs because the male owner''s wife or girlfriend saw me and, often without even speaking to me, nixed my chances of taking the voyage. I have worked many cruises in uncomfortable silence, no matter how hard I tried to get the women involved. It sucks, but some women are like that. But, you work through that as an attractive woman in the business. You work twice as damned hard to be taken seriously. Therefore, my statement that looks should not matter. And I stand by it.

Stop It! Next you''ll be saying she''s rich too...Which also shouldn''t matter...and then some inconsiderate Richard Cranium will wake me up and the dream will come to an end.
Seriously, I would never let myself be intimdated by a knowledgeable attractive woman sailor. I am well aware that I will never know everything there is to know about sailing and I am always willing to learn from whoever. Sounds like the intimidation was coming from the spouse more than from you regarding your "lost job" senario. Now I have to try and get back to sleep and get that dream back.....

Hello
Sail single handed, that way you will have no problems. Get a little dog who will be more faithful than any crew member.
OK. Shoot.
