Humm...One of the best Commodores of our club in SoCal--Alamitos Bay YC--was a lady, Mrs. Norma Clapp, in 1991. And, she was a heck of a good sailor as well.

FWIW...

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I'm 50 now, have owned 4 boats in my lifetime so far. One with a husband (Coronado 15'), one with a boyfriend (Catalina 27') and two myself. I do most of my own work on them except electrical because I don't want to burn my boat down. ;-) I think I have met at least 5+ others (women who own their own boats solo) in the past 5 years. I always think it's interesting how it is surprising to men that you live alone aboard and will assume you're with someone else who's boat it is. Just me and my dog!

I just bought my first boat at age 58. It's a 66' houseboat that will not move much once it arrives from Atlanta but will be a comfortable home for my business, my dog, and myself!

Welcome aboard!

Looking at your blog, you have a nice looking boat and a couple nice pups on board. Enjoy your time here at Sailnut

Interesting how that works sometimes. My wife is a nuclear qualified electrician from the Navy. In the past 8 years and 2 different boats you know how many electrical things she has worked on? ..................Zero!

This is a good point. Our boat is jointly owned by me and my partner. She is as much the owner, master and captain as I.
