When they act like that, show them that workbench you built - that'll humble them.

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.

There is another option: a Man overboard practice.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Lately I have been meeting a huge increase in young women either looking for or owning their own boats. They say that owning a boat is the only affordable way they will ever own their own home. What a contrast with when I began sailing.

Brent, some women don't like the idea and concept of depending on things, all sort of things ( I wont even list them because then I open the Pandora box in a forum). As someone nicely put it, the boat gives one a sort of controllable finite universe. As long as you actually learn as many aspects of it as possible, at the same time, it gives you the world as the backyard (at least in certain instances). Its risky, its tricky, it requires a certain mind set, certain personal expectations from life overall, and I don't go down this direction only because my sense of adventure and taking chances.
Its not "the only way to own a home" for me, its just setting different priorities and wants. And what works for me most probably wont work for other women. We all have different priorities and wants and needs and each has to do what makes them happy.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Some don't mind being called "Admiral"..
-------------------------------------------------------

7/1/2014 - Present
ADMIRAL MICHELLE HOWARD


Admiral Howard is a 1978 graduate of Gateway High School in Aurora, Colorado. She graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1982 and from the Army’s Command and General Staff College in 1998, with a Masters in Military Arts and Sciences.


Howard’s initial sea tours were aboard USS Hunley (AS 31) and USS Lexington (AVT 16). While serving on board Lexington, she received the secretary of the Navy/Navy League Captain Winifred Collins award in May 1987. This award is given to one woman officer a year for outstanding leadership. She reported to USS Mount Hood (AE 29) as chief engineer in 1990 and served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. She assumed duties as first lieutenant on board the USS Flint (AE 32) in July 1992. In January 1996, she became the executive officer of USS Tortuga (LSD 46) and deployed to the Adriatic in support of Operation Joint Endeavor, a peacekeeping effort in the former Republic of Yugoslavia. Sixty days after returning from the Mediterranean deployment, Tortuga departed on a West African training cruise, where the ship’s Sailors, with embarked Marines and U.S. Coast Guard detachment, operated with the naval services of seven African nations.


She took command of USS Rushmore (LSD 47) on March 12, 1999, becoming the first African American woman to command a ship in the U.S. Navy. Howard was the commander of Amphibious Squadron Seven from May 2004 to September 2005. Deploying with Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) 5, operations included tsunami relief efforts in Indonesia and maritime security operations in the North Arabian Gulf. She commanded Expeditionary Strike Group Two from April 2009 to July 2010. In 2009, she deployed to CENTCOM theater, where she commanded Task Force 151, Multi-national Counter-piracy effort, and Task Force 51, Expeditionary Forces. In 2010, she was the Maritime Task Force commander for BALTOPS, under 6th Fleet.


Her shore assignments include: J-3, Global Operations, Readiness and executive assistant to the Joint Staff director of Operations; deputy director N3 on the OPNAV staff; deputy director, Expeditionary Warfare Division, OPNAV staff; senior military assistant to the secretary of the Navy; Chief of Staff to the director for Strategic Plans and Policy, J-5, Joint Staff, deputy commander, US Fleet Forces Command, and Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Operations, Plans & Strategy (N3/N5). She currently serves as the 38th Vice Chief of Naval Operations.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Still.. whenever a male is on board a women owned/operated boat, anyone not knowing that, will ALWAYS defer to the male as the "Captain" The times when my son and I were on the Chesapeake anyone looking on would just assume my son was. He and I would just exchange glances and smile. I'd say "there ya go captain" take the wheel" AND pay the bills! LOL

I must say, in defense of men. Many younger men are "with it" and not "amazed" by women doing non traditional things. So.. there is hope
