I thought I had a picture of Julie actually shaving.
This is a close as I could find. (not a very flattering picture of my wife; I hope she doen't hate me for this one)
The girl's lounge around on floaties and wash thier hair and shave, IN THE LAKE, where you are supposed to. Gotta love fresh water.

Isn't it sad that altho posted in herSailNet, and a question posed to the female posters, only one has responded - and that us typical males on the forum have taken the thread over and are now, true to form, posting answers that are truly ridiculous (and I will add, consist on run on sentences with no whitespace and bad punctuation).

Oxaclic Acid anyone? Ten minutes in a bucket bath using saltwater and tequilla.

Enough of that tequilla and you won't care about shaving!

They (the shavee) might not - but the guys will (note previous comparision to 80 grit sandpaper).

Of course, you could avoid the whole situation by using either electrolytic hair removal prior to departure or a depilatory cream, like VEET, while cruising.

TB-

The random orbital sander was for Chuckles, not the ladies... whose skin is far too delicate to use either a heat gun or sander on.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Continuing on the hijacked thread venue -

TJK, the question was specifically shaving onboard. I can not help but notice that unless you sail on a inflatable lounge chair your wife and daughter(?) are clearly not onboard and therefore your solution is not viable or pertinent.

Certainly not as much as my oxaclic acid solution anyway

Take a bucket and fill it with Fresh Lake Water, than shave till your hearts content. There, how is that.
Man you guys/girls that sail in the salt don't know what you are missing.
And yes Chuckles is 100% correct, we have destroyed this thread.
Sorry ladies, it is after all in HERSAILNET.

And where or where would you store that bucket of fresh lake water while sailing around in the West Indies?

(sorry couldn't resist, a bit of the devil in me today)

Of course, along the lines of the tweezer torture method, they could always use something like this:



Requires no water... topical anesthetics yes, but no water.
