Yes, I do. I was just being gentle as I usually am. I noted, subsequent to that remark being made, that I was not the only man on this forum who took offense.

Not that the situation is ever likely to arise, but by this single instance of such uncouth language the person who uttered it has excluded himself not only from my X-mas open house, but also from ever setting foot aboard

" Right from Wrong", " Why WE don't use it" . Boys, I know exactly what I said, I said exactly what I meant. If the word offends your conscience, then I highly recommend you don't use it


Ladies if I offended you, my sincere apologies

Re: Spouse hates my boat

Doesn't anyone think the rehash has gone on enough. Make a decision her or her. The floating one doesn't have a voice.

Re: Spouse hates my boat

Too much noise on this thread. Did the OP live happily ever after or a miserable existence?

Re: Spouse hates my boat

Well...it sounds like he might have worked it out with his partner. But the fact he doesn't respond may indicate he is not involved with CF anymore and one might conclude he is boatless.
My former wife became disenchanted with the cruising idea after months of talking about it before we married. Five years later, I literally gave her the house and I took the boat. Such was life at the time. Somehow, I landed on my feet and she used the house as an ATM machine and eventually lost it. Such is Karma.
