Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Apparently, you will.
Two off-topic posts is a digression. three is a hijack.
Congrats, casey jones. you just ran it off the rails.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I also own my own boat. My boyfriend sails with me, but I initiated the purchase.

I'm also in my 20's so that probably puts me in a whole other category

I'm aboard Seaweed for 5.5 years as a soloist the entire time. And there's no life better!
Born and raised aboard a 40'er so it's natural to consider a boat a home. And mine's cute. Alas I'm under ten posts so I can't show her to you. That said, if you're curious janice142 dot com is me.

Janice aboard Seaweed, living the good life afloat...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I've lost count....seems to be a lot of female owners. I've known a few and admire their ability to take the responsibility of boat ownership seriously. I know I've seen more men crash a docking than women. WE own our boat and some shipboard duties are hers and some are mine, I usually do the "big shirt, little hat stuff" and she does things that don't require brute strength. The lines blur quite a bit after that. If anything ever happens to me, she'll be the "primary owner" adding one more to the count.
Please excuse me now while I take off the other shoe and continue the count.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Wife of 25 years owned a boat before we were married. She let me sail it. 5 boats later we are still sailing.

Enough said.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

Lived aboard and owned boats since 19. Cat, monos, and even a trawler. Met my hubby, sold my current boat ( I think it was boat number 7?) and moved over to Rain Dog, a gorgeous pacific seacraft 34, my hubby is pretty spectacular too:-).
