I'm the one who studies sailing magazines and books and reads navigation guides over coffee. I'm the one who figures out that our main isn't going up all the way because we aren't releasing the traveler, who is the better sailor in light winds, who doesn't panic at the helm in rough chop.

But sailing a modern cruiser also requires being able to fix engines and diagnose plumbing issues, and this is where my spouse, an engineer, shines. I don't think I would have dared get the boat without her. It's a sailing match made in heaven. I feel very lucky.

No spouse nor partner. Just a cat and some day a dog or two. If I need a man to do heavy work I will get one off the docks. The rest of the time no spouse required.

Cruising has long been defined as working on a boat in exotic locales.

The only reason to have a man around is to do the heavy lifting? Why don't you just buy a chain hoist - then you wouldn't need one at all.

Pretty sad.

What is 'pretty sad' about Me and Boo's comment? I see nothing sad in it at all

I guess it's one of those "If I have to explain it...." kind of things.

Electricity is simply plumbing where electrons are the water.
Be not afraid, and get thee a copy of Nigel Calder's book "Boatowner's Mechanical & Electrical Manual".

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Hiring testosterone is always an option... and by the same token I've been asked to run wires, install tachometers and such in those tiny places a male simply won't fit. Because I am not afraid of heights I've done quite a bit of work from a bosun's chair (actually a climbing harness because to me it feels safer/more secure) -- not because the fellow cannot, but because I like to see the world from up there and hauling me up a mast is a lot less work than someone weighing a couple hundred pounds. It's a part of the life. Some things I can do better and other stuff not so much. That's when it's nice to help and have help. That's what boat folks do for each other.
