To quote you: "rubbish!!!" Maybe this applies to the women you sail with, but it's not a general fact. The female cruisers I know do not fit your stereotypical characterization.

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.

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

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 had an Oday 30 close to 10 years,
Before that I had a hunter 23 for about 11 months, because it was so small, I sold it. if I hadn't gotten old so quickly OR the years haven't gone by so fast. The plan, was to have a 38 to 42 foot boat for myself. The dream is still there, the energy is gone

Clearly I have much catching up to do!

I do!
Just curious, as a first timer looking at this group: why are so many men responding to a question addressed to women on "herSailnet?"
Because the answer to equality is not segregation, let alone the propensity for reverse discrimination that is often posted on this subforum. :wink

Get along while we can
Always give love the upper hand
Paint a wall, learn to dance
Call your mom, buy a boat
Drink a beer, sing a song
Make a friend, can't we all get along

Sure, but, if someone asked "how many men here own their own boat?" why would I, a woman, feel the need to reply?

No need to answer, really. I can already see this is not the forum for me. Peace out.

I hope you stay and enjoy our common interest. I don't think any fellas replied that they owned a boat. They joined the discussion tangentially, which is how all these conversations develop. It's all good, everyone are frineds here, let's talk boats......
