Never knew the literal translatuion of that term, my bad. To me it meant someone, deserving of being in charge. That's all. WoW!

AND I have also used that term in describing men as being in charge.

Go Broncos!
Don't sweat the small stuff Jeffry. The Internet, for some, is an avenue to vent. It's a lot like the political campaign we just had to endure. When one of the candidates had a speech and used one questionable word, then the rival candidate would pounce on him.
I have found that after 6 years on this forum, I tend to glaze over some posters and use great restraint (sometimes) when replying. All in all I value everyone's opinion. It keeps a topic interesting.

For us guys…this is a topic that eludes us or at least me. To clarify, if you’re single, been married a few time, then it is quite the quandary. After awhile you can become a little gun shy. My first wife had motion sickness and sailing was completely off the charts so to speak. So I sailed alone most of the time and she would never allow my son to go with me, putting the fear of God in him when ever the subject came up. After 10 years, we were done.
Wife #2 said she wanted to grow her kids with me and sail away. We had known one another for three years and were pretty good friends. A lot of promises were made but after almost 6 years and her kids ready for college and the other out of High school. She thanked me for the house but sailing was not in her horoscope readings anymore. The marriage ended on that note. That was 12 years ago and although I have gone out with a few women, nothing ever blossomed when the subject of sailing long term came up.
Some of my well intentioned friends told me not to worry. That boat women are in sailing ports. But I was skeptical. Others had told me it was not the case. That they found most women to be nesters. Not that I even know what that is.
So one day I was reading on another sailing forum and happened to run across a person who found his sailing partner on a crew available forum. Reluctantly I gave it a shot. The person I met really opened my eyes to the whole women who know how to sail subject. Sailing, generally, is an easy task. Seamanship can take a lifetime. But compatibility and a gypsy soul is something that cannot be taught. The person has a sense of adventure or doesn’t.
I have been a rolling stone most of my life. Maybe not like Fatty Goodlander but quite close really. I’ve worked in Steel Mills, surveyed oil fields in the znorth West Territories, Office jobs, Engineering and Machinist. Travelled a lot and when I tire of living somewhere…I up and leave. So for me the boat life is a perfect fit. I can go where I want and when I want, weather permitting.
This person I met is positive, enthusiastic and loves the idea of sailing around with no real destination in mind. They are responsible and out going. I have a particularly healthy lifestyle and so do they. We are like thinkers. By that I mean if I have a thought, It is soon verbalized by the other. Pretty neat stuff. We are both citizens of other countries living in other countries. We have hung out some and decided to sail together with no real time table in mind.
So I think I’m on the right track here. Find a person that parallels with your personality and teach them basic seamanship and allow them to grow at their own pace regarding the sailing and cruising world. Any input would be great. I think this is a topic that has not been discussed too much here. I know we have many cruisers taking off who are married or at least co-habitating and sailing around. What’s your input?
I had forgotten how this all started!

I feel you have found as good of a person you should expect and the plan to grow into sailing is the way all of us learn (a little at a time).

It's likely that there's no "venting" going on either. Forums are ripe with the opportunity for misconception. It's far from the conversation where you have the ability to interpret inflections and body language. The emoticons are a poor substitute, but some find them helpfull. When there's a choice I favor the best and most honorable interpretations, though there are always ocassional disappointments; however, I don't think there are any real problems here.

Pictured are two women. One never gets riled because the room is to hot. Five minutes later, riled again cause it is too cold. She does not care if you watch games on tv, forget to bathe, get trunk, or forget birthdays. She does not cry for no reason, cook foods you hate out of spite, or fake orgasms. They do not start fights over some trivial thing that happened years ago, you have already hashed out a thousand times

I married the other style of woman 30 years ago thinking it was my only option. Today, guys have more choices. Lol

Can't blame me for looking up the meaning of a totally unfamiliar expression and taking offence at the meaning.
I have chilled out completely here now .

PS very glad I restrained from hurling any insults back LOL . It avoided the start of WWIII .

Yeah, yeah... this has turned into just another chick thread. You can tell a chick thread because eventually the boobs will start asking how we feel about something!!!!!! Prefaced with "Honestly" is a non-starter, men. There's no winning from here on.

Mods may as well merge this with the sewing thread right now.

Honestly, did you ever feel you had a chance of winning against a chick with her feathers ruffled?

Re: "What make the perfect boat woman...perfect"

This thread was doomed from the start. Trying to determine what makes women perfect is like trying to determine what makes men imperfect. To many variables to come to a concrete conclusion. But it was entertaining for a while.

At 180 posts, I would hardly call it doomed. There was some great input by both men and women. If anything is going to doom it, that will be the poor choice of humor that was displayed a few posts prior. It was a semi-serious thread and obviously dear to some peoples hearts. You can disagree with the input here. We each choose our own paths in life. When I stopped looking I have found someone that has a life much like my own and I think we can learn from one another both on and off the boat.

What's the US national deficit? Yeah 14 something trillion. Those were my odds, Lassie: 14 something trillion to one.

With no offense to R3. I wish I had that expertise, Cap! Hope my Neanderthal buds don't find out but I have a newish plastic singer home machine. It'll sew Sunbrella. Am planning on building an enclosed bug screen all round my new professionally made custom bimini.

Gee, I feel so much better having shared. Was it good for you, too?
