Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?
I just want to say, From the age of 19 thru 23 I was a crew member on a deep sea, sailing ship / research vessel/ school ship. When I joined, the first mate was a woman who taught me most of what I know. I eventually was promoted to first mate when she became the captain. She, to this day, is my mentor on most things Nautical. Later when I started sailing between Key West and Mexico a lot, my girl friend at the time was the best helmsman (much better than me) I have seen to date. Come to think of it, I learned to dive from a woman, I was second engineer to a woman on another ship, and even my Mother was a woman, and she taught me everything else I know.Thank's Ladies.
