Well, if you're buying in Ontario, you won't get that either .. she'll be on the hard at least half the time.

Sigh.... launch next week, I hope.

Yes, this is the longest winter in Ontario that I can remember in a very long time. Should be warming up soon, it better, I'm pulling my winter tires off tomorrow.

Don't forget to throw in a couple of yardarms and a dolphin striker! Real men go aloft to reef the sails!

I took a good look at your boat- you may not be lying. Do you really go aloft to reef?

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

I been reading this and not sure what to say except it reads like some of you are not secure with your gender and have issues? There have been no female response as they probable can not relate. Itís not the actual boat so much as the how itís outfitted, kept neat and clean, and decorated. A maleís boat is commonly referred to as a CAVE for a reason.

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

I know that i once bought a boat from a male friend sight unseen (the price was right) and well when i saw the interior it was definately a guy boat. Not pretty like the one i had at the time. I quickly sold it.

Your first hint that it just may be a Granny boat is when you lift the sea bunks and find the lee cloths made from crocheted doily's.

Jessica Watson's Pink Lady comes to mind. All interior surfaces also pink.

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

Then there was Tom Watson and his pink boat....

Latitude 38 - 'Lectronic Latitude

You know the saying, only real (e.g., confident) men can wear pink.

So this is one woman's opinion -- and in a twisted way it's kinda like finding a girlfriend or wife -- choose the boat you fall in love with, not the one that everyone else wants for you.
