Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I like to take care of a woman. Taking care is giving respect. I don't see it as negative. I'd expect any woman paired up with me to be able to take care of herself. Half the watches on deck!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Having been through similar from the other side of the gender coin, I heartily agree. Throw your heart into it but keep your head on square. Mind your pints and quarts. He or she may be the love of your life but they aint blood.

Loser nonsense from both perspectives.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

the last 2 pages here are making me ill.

This section of Sailnet proves that Male privilege is alive and well! More men post here then women!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I know a woman that owns and lives on her boat and takes it sailing a lot . The pic is of a sister ship . The woman in question has quite a bit of nice equipment and canvas on hers, so her boat looks different (better) . Also she keeps it maintained to a high level .

He settles down now that expectations and all those promises he made are gone... then he finds the Princess Babe who takes the place of his former partner.

Of course that relationship fails too -- Princess doesn't want to actually break her nails or anything like that! ...

So owner wishes for original gal. In the meantime, she's moved on. Less money but far wiser.

Be very careful. Of course one hopes this doesn't happen to you. Just be aware that statistically, you're in a precarious position. I do wish you well.
Well, once she finishes working on the boat, why keep her? Bring her sailing to exotic ports is like bringing sand to the beach...






... I'm kidding. I will be going sailing with my wife
