To be fair, SaucySailoress wasn't that quick off the mark in this case. In fact, SaucySailoress was quite happily ignoring all the chauvenististic remarks on the other thread from the 9th June (when it started), till the 16th June (when she left to go cruising in Greece), confident in the knowledge that the other thread would be dead when she got back, and therefore not worth bothering about.

It seems SaucySailoress was wrong. She totally underestimated the amount of amusement the men could get out of giggling about women. She shouldn't have been so surprised though, since she is sometimes a teacher, and after all, sailing men have very little difference from little boys really.

At least women have the power. And you know it, and we know you know it, but we never force you to admit it because we are female and we have caring feelings. So down on yer knees and start sucking know your place.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

I hear 2-Stroke versions are cheaper to run than the 4-Stroke versions out there.

P.S. Ladies for added savings look for one with a Pull-Start.

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

Who said, no one will ever win the war of the sexes, there is too much fraternizing with the enemy?

Re: How much does a man cost to run?

i would think the running costs of "man" would be directly preportional to the size and amount of yachts owend by said "man".

i know now have 3 in various states of dis-repair and running costs have now gone up by a third......and her in doors is ah bitching,but as some one else said "im worth it!!!""
and hey i could be at home making the house untidy.....instead of on my boats....
so inversely im doing my fair share of keeping the house tidy....

My other half... make that 3/8s... wanted to buy a tee shirt at a flea market that said, "I have the p_ _ sy, so I make the rules".

I told her that any time she wears it she'll be walking alone. I mean really, what would the kids think if they knew the truth!
