Sure we do!
Where do you think you are, Cruiser's Forum?

"Okay, *this* thread has clearly lost its way."

Maybe we did lose our way. What happened was the question of why women don't post here pushed buttons for many people, myself included. We are all speaking from our unique frames of reference. We've all had negative experiences with those who are plumbed differently from ourselves. These events influence our thinking. However we need to realize that our observations and conclusions brought about by these incidents are ours alone, and for us they are valid. These beliefs impose no necessity on anyone else.

Yes, I've changed tires and even hooked up jumper cables for the guy that had a dead battery.These are necessities of life. A person does what a person has to do, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or religion.

In response to mikieg: Who are you to say who is involved in life or not? Does involvement mean physical activity only. What about the interior life--the life of the mind, heart, and soul?

Have I covered all the philosophical bases here??

Mikieg... I think you owe DRFerron an apology.. that comment was uncalled for and amounts to pointless baiting. I'd delete the post but it's been quoted so often that's too much work, and the members have already figured you out by the look of it.

Do the right thing...

Why do you think there are 10 lonely guys living on boats posting in this thread?

Guys, if the truth be told, available ladies on sailing forums are almost unheard of... you're all better off sitting on the nearest bar stool practicing the line "Honey, do you want to come over and see my yacht?".

See? This is how it's done. DR rocks.

mikie, on the other hand, not so much. There's funny and there's boneheadedness. Find the line bro.

Perhaps because most women sailors don't need to shout their opinions on every subject.

Unlike most male captains I've sailed with.
