Never heard of a girly boat but if you want to draw attention, have the wife take the boat out while you sit on the back deck with a drink in hand.

The marina comes to a complete standstill.

Barbecues,.... Aren't mandatory??? Thanks all for the responses btw, these are great forums here. As with any online conversation it's guaranteed some things will be lost in translation.

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

Hum a girlie boat I remember pulling my boat up to the landing in Jacksonville for a night of partying and when I docked up allot of hot girls came over and asked if they could come aboard. Great evening. but I guess if you'd rather guys want to come aboard your boat that's fine too. .

If you follow the above, you'll also not have to worry about having women on board who will tell you how to sail.
A manly boat will have all halyards belayed at the mast (winches are for sissies).

Damn steve - I stand corrected!

Oh and none of those chartplotter thingys - real men use a sextant and dead reckoning


To be serious, if you want female company - make sure you have a working, clean head.
I agree that when my wife takes our 40 footer out and I'm just sitting in the cockpit half asleep, the entire marina stops and everyone stares. Last year she med landed the boat in a tiny harbor with a heavy cross wind. Never have seen so many guys running around their boats with panic fenders and yelling advice.

She didn't need it - just dropped that baby right in between a couple of other boats, had maybe a foot on each side.

There is no such thing as a girly boat model or brand,
but at your $5k budget, harmless is appropriate, you'll be lucky to get
a 'kiddie boat' just joking girly man.

So what does that make trimarans? Bi? Trannie?

Re: Is that a dude captaining that boat!? Helllooo!!

My wife found and bought our boat. It looks salty/tough but the boats interior is anything but. I advice first time males to follow take note what the female’s likes/dislikes are. If the female does not like it, it will not be used and/or you will be boating solo and/or with your male friends. Most of the boat I have seen females captain tend to be smaller in the 30 ft range which are easier to handle.
