There are two camps. Some women find nothing wrong with it and others find it demeaning.

Personally, I don't like it, but once I saw just how many women are perfectly OK with the label, I decided there are more important things to get vocal about.

That said, my SO knows I'll go total Lysistrata on him if he calls me Admiral.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I have Admiral on my boat card... it was that or Bilge Rat, both of which have been the titles most earned of late. But most people call me by the name of my boat and that's perfectly fine too.

There are worse things in the world and as long as any term is not meant in a derogatory way, or even if it is, what difference does that make? I don't much care what you think about me as I'm living the life I chose.

Owning and living aboard a boat does take a level of internal strength. If you don't have that you'll either fail, or fall into a bottle of booze for some liquid bravery. The latter never works well for the individual.

And all too often that's what happens to the solo men out here. It's not pretty.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

In the Navy the Admiral controls the ships movements while the Captain controls the ships operations. That's pretty much been the situation on most of the boats I've been on re: the wife & the husband (or GF/BF).

On the boats owned by women I guess it should be reversed and the guy should be the Admiral.

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.

It seems to me that some like to continually poke through the cage and, when the animal bites back, they expect it to be tranquilized.

Well I didn't get my boat for the little man to be my captain LOL even though my little man is 6'2" (son)

I've absolutely loved owning my own boat all this time even with, getting older, lack of energy, funds, etc.
