I own my own boat, my fourth.
Hello Lesley. If you're in a marina or boatyard the best/easiest way is to chat up a fellow who has done similar work on his boat. Ask questions. Nobody knew all this stuff at first. We learn and eventually it will make sense to you too.my problem seems to be taking it from page to hands - on where the mental block kicks in. I don't know how to transition from theoretical to practical. (snip) I need some hands on guidance, and I don't just know where to get it.
And, remember, BS is even single!I know many single handed women sailors who have off shore experience and tough coastal experience. And to revive this topic, I add, they sail Steel Brent Swain sailboats or Vintage wood or other kinds of makes and have great lives cruising the oceans.
Its a good life for a woman.. sometimes challenging because of the 'old boys clubs'. but the nice guys are not ruffled by it! And friends are made tried and true.. its a good life! True colors. Thats what the sea gives.. True Colors.
I seriously doubt that Julie's intent with her original question was to divide. It was probably just natural curiosity from one woman to the rest of us. No conspiracies behind it.Hi,
Many women own their own boats! But what is the big deal, many men own their own boats.
I don't see the need of this separation. ...
Don't divide - include!
It might be fun
