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.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."
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.Well, there is rubbish of the generic kind... ,and then there is male rubbish which Imo is unsolicited advice that all men must give no matter what, they, just have to, they just can't help it,
Ladies, just give him the wheel and megaphone and he'll and he'll be happy to rest of his life!

Because the answer to equality is not segregation, let alone the propensity for reverse discrimination that is often posted on this subforum. :winkI 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?"
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......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.
