Re: Need help proposing to my girlfriend

Another thought: You could just post her number and one of the helpful folks on SN might propose to her for you . . ..

Good luck... And come back when all is done to share your moment with us and how it went. Always difficult to capture a private moment... But pictures would be nice! Maybe after all is done, have someone in the marina take a pic of the happy couple on the deck.

Here's the plan -contact BlackRock Sailing ASA sailing school, club, & charters in Boston, Massachusetts and arrange for a private Boston Harbor sunset cruise on the Hunter 33 or go all in with the 49. After the deed is done, your romantic dinner is right there at the top of the gangway Welcome to Strega Waterfront

Not a cheap evening, but definitely does the job first class, and given what the rest of the program will cost you, a fitting start.

Re: Need help proposing to my girlfriend


You make a good point about a "normal" wine bottle. Alas, I have already thought of that. I purchased an antique wine bottle that allows a ring to fit inside. I will then clean it and have it filled special by the winery with the ring inside and a professional seal.

You better believe I will be extremely careful with a ring in a bottle on a ship!!!

Hmmm... Maybe if I can secure a fishing line to the inside of the cork and attach the other side to the ring. She when I have her uncork the bottle the ring comes out? Hmmm ill have to think about how that may work.

Ring inside wine bottle...Uh, she'd better have tiny fingers because rings ain't gonna fit into anything except boxed wine. And, really, rings in "foods" have been known to take a three-day detour on occassion, if you know what I mean.

Give her a big bouquet of flowers, have the florist wire up the ring on a wired stem in the middle of the bunch. "Smell these". Or ask her to get something from the nav table or the galley--and leave the ring box in plain sight where you've sent her. "Would you bring me the blue box that's on the nav table?"

Just keep it away from the rail, Poseidon has been known to snatch at shiny things.

HAHAHAHAh... I think I just laughed out loud in my cubical!

Hmmm, I guess.... I don't think that's out of the question if someone feels comfortable with the idea. That would be pretty epic I have to admit!
