Preach it sister! I'll post some pics when I head down to clean tomorrow. I'm beyond excited to have her. Guess I'll have to find a home for my old boat

I couldn't figure out how to post pics from my phone so I just put it in my signature :-)

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Just found this thread. I'd like to have myself counted as owning my own boat. It is a Sparrow 16, micro-cruiser. It is a pretty modest little boat but serves me well. I also think she is the cutest little boat on the water. :-)

Fair Winds Girls!

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I've owned a total of 3 boats. I started sailing/learned to sail on a Chrysler 22. I started coastal cruising on a Chrysler 26. Then, I purchased the boat that I have now when I decided to become a liveaboard. The boat is titled to me and was purchased with my money. I've met lots of couples that own boats jointly and many men that own boats, but I've only met roughly 8 women that own their own boats while out on my own boat. It's definately the exception and not the rule. Whenever I'm alone on my boat and bring it in to get fuel or whatever, I get ALOT of looks and most times will get asked something like, "You sail that thing all by yourself!?", as if they are amazed by the fact that singlehanding can even be done by a female. The looks on their faces are quite priceless. I can't say I don't enjoy their reactions. I get alot of offers from guys to be my 1st mate! Ha! Ha!
