Hi Livia,

I interviewed Nancy Erley for my book and she was great. She has circumnavigated twice now. While not always solo (she took paying crew at times), she has a great perspective on women...

I appreciate what you are saying. "Get" does have a connotation of manipulation doesn't it. In my book, I use that term ironically because you can't GET someone to buy into The Dream-which is...

Gary,

Listen man, you are not in as deep a pile of doo-doo as you think, and here's why: you know and are willing to acknowledge that there are issues outside of the boat that need to be worked...

ejanietx,

Excellent points.

First of all, we men can get so excited by the prospect of living out The Dream that we move too quickly. If our spouse doesn't appear to be keeping pace with our...

Brad, that's the name of the game, because if she isn't happy, the boat goes nowhere!

There was a study on risk aversion done by Riley and Chow in 1992 that concluded that women become less risk...

Hey thanks!

Hey thanks. After all of my research and interviews, I am convinced that the VAST majority of us guys will NEVER go cruising without our wife/girlfriend/partner/etc fully on board with The Dream. ...

Seems like your question is off-topic, but you answered the question yourself didn't you? There is nothing they could have done.

What does that have to do with raising your voice or making your...

Yelling, shouting, etc.

Yelling, shouting, etc. I think the researchers mean using a voice with a higher volume than would otherwise be needed to be audible. Not sure about that to tell you the truth. Regardless, it...

Some broad brush strokes here.

Sorry if I painted with too broad a brush here everyone. Of course raising your voice to be heard and of course raising your voice in an emergency are necessary. I don't think any reasonable sailor...

Very well said Melissa.

Listen to ATC recordings of "Captain Sully," as he was about to ditch his plane (US Airways flight 1549) in the Hudson River. 155 people aboard, $60M plane, and he had to...

I think objectives are key. We "goal oriented" men seem all too ready to head out for whatever adventure might come. Ironic, and against stereotypical notions about men and women that having...

Thanks for the interest, but you'll have to google me

Thanks for the interest, but I don't think the moderators of this site would appreciate me selling books on their forum. I respect the rules and don't want to come off as a commercial jerk.

Some men treat everything as an emergency.

I agree with you Sailingdog. As captain, you must act quickly and decisively to keep people (then the boat) safe if danger is imminent. If that means yelling, you absolutely should and must. ...

Right on Tom

It's painful living away from the ocean.

Karl, I feel your pain. My wife and I spend three years there in the Front Range when I was doing weather down at KUSA. We missed the ocean too much, and moved back to the SF Bay Area.
