Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Start Thread Drift:

I tend not to view this area of SN very often. However, I think the reason some men are interested in this thread is that we hope that sailing isn't as exlusionary as it appears. I sincerely hope that there are sailors from both genders, all races, sexual orientations, economic resources, political opinions... well scratch that last one until tomorrow.

End Thread Drift:

My last husband often said I was married to my boat. Before we married (the husband, not the boat) I told him that if he ever made me choose between him and my boat that I would always choose my boat. Either he thought I was kidding, or there is more proof that men don't listen to women.

I own my own boat. Single hand her and prefer men stay away from her.

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?

Hi all, just wanted to give an update. As of yesterday, I am now the proud owner of a 1978 Pearson 30. Great boat and I'm excited to start working on her and making her shine!
