Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I'm a woman and I own my own sailboat. I bought it with two other people (two guys), but I was the one who found the boat, got it surveyed, and pushed forward the purchase. So there's one more of us!

Having a backup head is fine, but on a smallish sailboat it is a huge space that could probably be better used for other purposes. But there is no universal right answer, and certainly not one driven by "Ladies."
Actually Mike, I agree with you. However, that sentiment is one expressed by my wife when she bought our current yacht (see my prior post on this thread, #17 on the first page) and since seconded by numerous other wives/girl friends at our club when the subject has come up for discussion. I finally conceded the point tho' our aft head often devolves to being naught save a "wet locker" during snotty weather on our travels.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Denise, I’m going to assume there was a big or missing in there somewhere. Otherwise, your comment is as sexist as svHyLyte’s was.

Re: How many women here own their own boat?

I am one and have owned my boat (44' Cheoy Lee) for over 20 years as the primary owner.
Currently in San Carlos, MX and I have met several women over the years that have owned their own boats. I am not typically a 'joiner' so am sure Pam Walls' information is schewed as there are others like me. There is a woman here that just pulled in who has a PDQ 36' (Cat), and is a single sailor.
Good luck with buying your boat. Go for it!

I finally bought my first boat this year. It’s a 79 Chrysler C 22. It’s my starter cruiser, my practice for getting back to the blue.
