And when "jameswilson29" said very similar things earlier in the thread, he had people jumping all over him. And his statements were far less provocative than these.

Is it only ok to quote medical journals when the results show an advantage to women?

As do insecure females when they are told they are smaller, weaker and less aggressive, on average of course.

A smiley with a tongue. Maybe she thought you were tainting her.

What's laughable about smaller people getting smaller boats? Just because some woman are bigger most are not. If I weighed 300 pounds I would need a bigger boat, so I assume if I were shorter, a boat with 5'10" standing room would be comfortable but for someone 6' that's cramped.

Do most women not eat less? That's a good thing. I hate eating and storing and cooking on the boat so if you can get away with less that's good. It's all good actually. Smaller hosts are cheaper, easier to maneuver, less maintenance and tey still sail. You can do whatever you want on the right 32 footer as a 40 footer.

My dog is a corgi. She is short so she needs a smaller kennel than a lab.

This isn't about hither women can do in a boat what men can do, but whether they are held back from doing so by a boys club mentality which I do not think is too bad in sailing compared to maybe some other things.

Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

northoceanbeach---you try cruising on a tiny under 40 ft boat...aint happening with me--i chose 41 ft as it is big enough for my maine coon cat and me..has 6'4 headroom and real sized beds... yummmmy teakwood interior and lots of room for stowing lots of food and water for a looong trip of over 20 miles lol.....
considering i make my passages over 200 miles in length,which takes me about 2 weeks on occasion, a tiny boat wouldnt do me much good, now, wood it....

the boat must fit the needs and purpose, not the size of the individual sailing her....
my 5'6 male friend sails a 85 ft schooner..by your reckoning, he should be sailing a 28 ft sloop...rodlmao.


argyle must be a male...rodlmao..

Not sure that counting the bowsprit is fair when calling out the point on whether a boat is big enough or too big inside. Doesn't the Formosa 41 have a LWL just over 30ft?

rodlmao? I know roflmao. Must be girl thing.
