Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

Is the OP still around, or did Denise wander away unannounced? I posted a refrigeration question, in another thread of course, a few days ago that I swore she would have replied to.

What WingNWing said.

The beauty of sailing is that there is ALWAYS something more to learn if you keep yourself open to it. It has not become boring. Beyond actually operating the boat you may find an interest in weather, navigation, electronics, rebuilding heads...

Good luck and welcome to the club.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

btw--learned to sail --age 7 yrs. we sailed with our uncle until after high school, when we moved thousands of miles away---i came back for another year of it, so did my other sibs--something about st louis after hudson river--just aint,,errr, wasnt happening--lol---went back into it with a vengeance and found that even tho i hadnt sailed many yrs, i was in better form than some ladies i knew with small boats--so we sailed a lot to catalina and day sails, didnt take long at all, actually.
learned the hard stuff(boom) age 7. ye never forget that one...the rest was easy. but i learned on gaff rigging--we didnt have a lot of fancy bs on the boat. we didnt race. one is NEVER done learning to sail..each time out is different ...no 2 sailing adventures are same...

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

some male members seem to think the ladies here know nothing and will begin a bash then twist the deal so it looks like th e female has faux pas'd--can be a large put off, as the males doing this are desk jocks and nonsailors , game players and trolls who love playing word twist...not fun to deal with.. prolly a lot of spare testosterone they know not how to handle......is why i only stop by on occasion.....just sayin...

More like insecurity than testosterone Zee.

Thing is, as cliched as it sounds, the only thing between you and what you want to do, is yourself. You may not be able to be the champion, but that doesn't mean you can't do what you can do.

After working with the macho boys for almost four decades, there's nothing they can say that I haven't heard before. The guys here are tame compared to what I'm used to.

A sense of humor disarms most instigators.

Re: Why are the Ladies silent on Sailnet?

i have worked with macho guys and such--i was and still am oldest of 4 kids labelled horrid children by momma, with pride, -- i know how to deal with em--i am tired of having to do so--but i can usually hold my own for looong time before the guys resort to name calling, as their tiny brains cannot handle intelligence in females.


and , then, humor works, also.....
