Maybe not normal but certainly sad.

She said once that she does the hunting and the buying - hubbie only cuts the cheques - that counts in my book.

If you bought the boat before you were married you may have somehwat of a case but not after 7 years of marrige in MD.

If there is someother definition I guess my wife owns our boat. Just as I do.

I think the answer for this question is for sole ownership.....therefore you arent married. Dave
The one who changes the oil, paints the bottom and goes up the mast is the owner for the purpose of this discussion - legalities bedamned.

My last doctor used to own that boat until his wife made him sell it and downsize to a C&C 29. He joined the Navy shortly thereafter. (really!)

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I just want to ask where these boat owning women were when I was single?

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I met my lovely wife because she was looking to buy a boat and inquired about the boat I was selling. I had never before met a woman who wanted to own her own boat...so I didn't let her go. She didn't buy mine, but she did buy a Nor'sea 27 and we sailed in convoy on two separate boats for a few years. Now we will own a shared boat but we are aware of the keeping it shared equally!

P.S. She keeps a blog at sailingsimplicity.com

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

on our dock with about 80 boats, at least three of them are owned by single women; all extremely avid and accomplished sailors....
