Re: Wife vs. Boat

Sounds exactly like something my ex would have done, unfortunately I'm not joking.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

Makes me realise how lucky I am with my choice of wife. She'd have still been wrestling with the instructions for the drill by the time I next went to the boat...

Re: Wife vs. Boat

"Fleming had gone to the yacht for a "menage-a-trois" with her then lover, David Brown, and his wife Nemone, the court heard."

Lets see if I have this right...She goes to her EX-husband boat for a sex excursion, see's a couple of added electronics onboard and tries to sink it. Turning on the gas could have killed that Harbormaster.
...what a piece of work! She should have got 10 years IMHO.

...some females are just too overly emotional LOL, sad how out of control this has gotten and seemingly how acceptable it is...

Easiest way for women to find me refusing them permission to board any of my vessels? (As well as get bounced outta my life/getting the fade?)
Show jealousy towards my toys or especially question her place in the pecking order of things in my life...females are a dime a dozen and too easy to replace when one owns a Harley, boat or especially both.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

I will simply add--I overheard two women talking in the Panama city Marina once...the thing I heard was "never tell him it's the boat or me, because you can't be sure how that will shake out...."

rodlmffmao. males have no clue that the drama they create, such as sabotaging a sola ladyś boat for no reason, instead of effecting pre arranged and agreed upon repairs, is not cool. and males think women are evile... guess again., where the hell do you clowns think we learned this **** you have been doing to us for centuries nay millennia......

Re: Wife vs. Boat

And I'll bet she had no drill license, and used an electric assault drill at that. There's just no reason for civilians to have those high-power high-speed assault drills, when they can use a brace and bit for any reasonable purpose.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

I am blessed with the Admiral I married as she loves to go offshore as much, or more, than I do. Having said that there were a couple of times when I went to sleep very nervous after being (in hindsight) a pretty big arse. Of course it has gone both ways but I would never, seriously, consider harming her while at sea. It helps to have someone else to take watches, and, she has learned how to put up with me - not a very easy thing to do. And she needs me to fix the boat.

You, too? No wonder we get along so well here on this internet community...

I have actually learned a LOT from mine. Now, I know when I go down to fix things and she asks me "How did it go?" the very first thing I say is. "All fixed and I cleaned up the xyz cabin while I was at it." She already knows I like it neat and clean anyway, but an extra heaping of TSP goes a LOOONG way.
