Unfortunately, I think the boors will be boors regardless of anything that Inland Girl or any of the other women boat owners aboard this forum may post on their boats...

I'm sorry to hear too many guys are behaving badly. Some of it may have to do with expectations and communication styles.
Maybe some of it has to do with how many guys are still socialized to "conquer"; an appearance of promiscuity is not always a liability in the "boys' treehouse".
And, maybe even the one-with-one sailing has a different social atmosphere than something like golf, tennis, skiing, etc. since two people on a boat are relatively isolated; maybe some guys think they are "off leash" when they're on the boat or when they go to big regattas. And maybe some guys think of hitting as making compliments?! Dunno, just thinking out loud.
Some cruising boats have a sheet of paper or laminated "welcome to the boat" card that covers house rules, expectations. and the do-and-don't items. Is there any chance that something like that would do some good?

Was the biggest issue the fact that these where married men ("Taken")?
Would it be acceptable if single friends invited for sailing make a move?!!!
Or, is it possible that his wife would not mind him having a casual relationship with his sailing buddy?!!!
Now, if we keep the marriage out, I see how this would be a problem. You want to have a sailing partner only, he is too eager to get a lot more friendly... The way I see it, as if I invite somebody for a drink, and he starts selling me a condo in Florida?...
I kinda understand them though.
The way our lifes are, we've taken "romance" out of the work place, we drive to and from everywhere, the only place poor guy can meet a girl is while sailing (single or "taken").
