Lets ask the OP to clarify. Julie what were you asking when you said " how many women own their own boat?"
However one interprets the question is unimportant to me. Everyone has their own interpretation of ownership. And whatever that is, that's what matters most. If there are women here who feel they own their own boat, then they do.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

It would seem to me that asking this type of question is just another way to divide the genders and is irrelevant. It does not matter if a sailor owns a boat or rents a boat the fact that he or she is a sailor is good enough for me. In our state we have a community property law that says if it is only in HER name if she is married to a man then he still owns half of it. Same thing if it is only in his name she still owns half of it.

By that argument, the entire herSailnet area is irrelevant and divisive.

I don't think the OP posted (in an area where she probably expected only women to respond) with the intention of dividing anyone. I may be wrong, but I suspect it was natural curiosity. The same as when some months back someone asked why more minorities aren't sailing or someone else asked what happened to the young people.

I think perhaps more is being read into the original question than was intended.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I own my boat and single-handed for years. My husband now sails with me...he was a non-sailor when we met and it took nearly 15 years to get him to start cruising with me. For a long time he preferred to fly in to meet me. I have met lots of women over the years, especially here in the PNW who own their own boats.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I've put boats in my wife's name when she didn't even realize it. I'd think the "legaleeze" is not the relevant point.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Great point, think SAIL not gender politics, not race politics, not gender preference politics, not legal politics, let’s just all sail and remember we all have that certain something in common that gives us that love for the water lapping up against the hull, gentle breezes and of the canvas working it miracles.

A forum that does not expect a group to participate (men), is divisive. By definition.

Not at all. Look at all the sections here, especially the ones with all the different makes. You wouldn't expect someone who has only owned and sailed Tartans to give their opinion on Island Packets, would you? That they do is fine but I would expect the Island Packet people wouldn't take what they have to say to heart.

When it comes to men and women, we're very different with very different life experiences. If I want to speak to the women, I come to herSailnet. Isn't that why it was created? But by no means is it being divisive if I expect women to answer or that I would be most interested in what the women have to say.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Being a “different” type of person all my life, I always considered myself and opinions to be welcome in both men’s and women’s groups so I never bother to look at the restrictions. But this experience has once again hurt, just a little. Curious though, does your reply that mean you go to “hisSailnet” when you only want to talk to men sailors? Is there an "alternative lifestyle sailnet"? I guess I would be restricted to that one. You know, the one that you are respected for who you are not what “defects” you happened to be born with. But really, I just want to sail, I want to learn from others so I do not have to make every sailing mistake myself and frankly I just do not care what the gender is of those I can learn from. Mostly I like to be in the company of people who like to sail. I feel we ALL have very different life experiences and it is those differences that make us stronger as a group. But apparently there are still people in the world that want to divide us, and yes, I suppose I did not read the sign that said “no men allowed”, I apologize. Did not even see the label HerSailnet. I always thought I was welcome in both groups, but I keep getting hammered by those who think I should not be allowed in either group. Yes, I suppose I should be more careful and not post in a group that hates those who offer a different life experience. Again my apologies...
