No kidding. Now I know what's going on.

It sounded like Mr. Wifey is the one with experience on cruising boats, or am I interpreting it wrong?


Wifey,
Sorry, but you're overreacting. Loosen up a bit. He wasn't purposely trying to kill you.
Next time an accidental gybe happens (because it will), yell at Mr. Wifey asking if he's retarded or something and kick him out of the helm seat.
Set up some rules such as if someone on board is nervous, then you slow down. If there's an accidental gybe, you lose your seat at the helm.

It sounds like both of you have some experience. Both of you should know better than to rush a trip. Both of you should be able to see an accidental gybe coming.

You both have learning to do. So go learn and start over with a clean slate. If you fall off the horse, you have to get back on.

One aspect of our (this) online community is someone can ask for advice and ideas and it won't be long before such advice and ideas are posted.

The task for any person who places a post is to review, consider, and evaluate the responses that can best help.

I enjoy readings the posts because responses are wide in scope. From non sensical to brutally expressionistic - in my opinion.

And to think such a community like this did not exist decades ago. Look how far we have come to make connections.

For this particular post, I encourage both parties to continue to work together toward a solution. Each of us finds our path, and so it will be here for our OP.

Best to you. Continue to seek out resources.

This is nothing compared to the old usenet newsgroups back in the 80's and early 90's before the web. You could find any topic, or create your own group, especially in the "alt.whatever" categories. Things have always been brutal, and usenet wasn't censored mostly.

Wifey said that she'd had dinghy experience.

Could be I'm missing something.

Did she captain, or work crew?

How rigorous is that training these days?

I can only speak for myself, but the requirement to crew aboard Whiskeyjack is:
Got booze?
You're in.

Perhaps this was her dinghy experience?
