Re: Your Boat Relationship

Simply put...My boat takes care of me and I take care of her. That's more than I can say for the care received from prior relationships...if ya know what I mean!

Re: Your Boat Relationship

yeah--contrary to popular opinion, boats do take care of ye--- they float when is important and they house ye and they do so many nice things.......if ye listen carefully, they even talk to ye--that is the lil voice in your head saying when to prevent a boomn or shorten sail or what is wrong with boat.......

onions and mushrooms in ramen beats ketchup and mustard.....

For me, its about enriching my life with the boat.

Did you finally get up here? What did you decide for the winter?

Re: Your Boat Relationship

Okay, I've been seriously dating for the last five months; but when I look back at the pictures I have saved over the years, the calendars I have saved, stored away (the ones that are special and I can't get rid of); the screen savers of great beauties such as Great Lakes ore carriers - obviously I've been having these feelings for a very long time.

During these months I have been in the company of many fine boats. A few showing their age. A few hiding flaws well, but when pressed in the "special" spot revealed "issues" that are beyond what I can deal with. A few of them more rich than I should be near. Some with a beauty that dazzles and a charm I can easily succumb to.

I've had the greatest pleasure of knowing a couple of the nicest; great loves that I wanted to keep and sleep on and live with and yet we had to stop seeing each other. There is always something that keeps happening. I know it is me. I know it is something that time will cure.

But what can I do? I know there is one (hmm, maybe more than one) which will be a forever love.

Re: Your Boat Relationship

When we moved from our previous boat, upon which we'd lived for eight years, into our current boat, we rafted the two boats side-by-side and proceeded to move all our earthly possessions from one boat to the next. The following morning, as I cast the new boat off to head for home, I felt terrible for the old boat being left behind.

You could not have convinced me at that moment that a boat is an inanimate object.
