You misinterpreted what I said. What I was saying is for a man to embark on that kind of voyage alone is far more common than for a woman to do so, when neither has any real sailing experience and especially when the woman is 65. Men do a lot of crazy things. You only need to watch one of those "amazing video" shows to know that.

I can guarantee you if my husband was about to do something like that and I had even the slightest idea how dangerous it was, I would certainly voice my disapproval. I wouldn't care if we argued or became angry with each other. It's his life and well being that would matter most to me. We can always kiss and makeup but you can't bring someone back from the dead. And if he insisted on going, I would go with him, not wish him well and say, "See you later!"

So you'd tie her up and stuff her in a closet or something?

Quit thumping your chest.


Apparently she has some experience. It's more likely she had a stroke or a heart attack.

But where's the "We" in that? My wife and I regard ourselves as two 1/2's of a whole, not two completely separate and individual people - that's for dating.

A killer hiding for hours on a 30 footer?

Re: Woman Missing – A warning to Newbies.

I just want to say that Meme's zombie theories are far, far, far more enjoyable than the politically charged drivel as to what constitutes a more perfect union between plump old chicks and dudes.

Take it to PRWG. Yeesh.

Well, you really must love her to make that sacrifice.

If an argument is based on one spouse wanting to sail into eel-infested waters, all alone, in the dark of night, directly into a storm, along rocky shoals and the other wanting their spouse to live another day results in divorce... Maybe someone has their priorities a bit skewed.

LOL! Good one!

Hitting that shore (or any of the many offshore rocks), that Ferro boat wouldn't have fared any better.
