Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I should point out that I was speaking from anecdotal experience. In my marriage, it's just as likely clip is doing the laundry or vacuuming or cooking (the paella sounded fabulous, btw). As far as fixing things, I'm every bit as handy as he is though we each have our own strengths. So far we have both worked on refinishing brightwork, pulling up carpet, replacing weatherstripping, cleaning and waxing the hull, replacing the striping and putting on her name, and recovering the cabin cushions.

I stand by my statement -- it doesn't have to be sexist, it is what you make it. I want to be very involved. Your mileage may vary.
