Re: Women in Boats..and how to become one

It's a catch 22, lack of practice bring less confidence, without confidence one stays away and can't build more practice. One has to break the vicious cycle.

Personally I also feel very logical putting the ladies on the helm: I am usually taller to reach sails/reach out for mooring lines, stronger to handle the anchor, etc.

Useful as a fireproof bottom paint...
