Any sensible female would want to know why you are only interested in females ...

Clearly because we're:

- better looking
- better at cooking
- better at staying clean
- better at keeping our space clean
- better at conversation
- better company
- better at leaving the heads in a useable state

Haven't we been here before....

You are correct, no self respecting guy would do his own cooking, cleaning, laundry, and boat washing for that matter.

You hit the nail on the head.

When I go sailing I intend to do the same type of add. I figure that any women would want to go sailing for free and earn her passage by being my slave.

He forgot to mention the sleeping arrangements, how many cabins are there on the boat. Might be a deal breaker.

Re: Female crew wanted.

there are many reasons to want a woman on board besides the sick s**T some of you are comming up with..
If I were traveling , a woman would be my number one choice, women think differently from men, at least the ones I know.. if you tell my wife to keep on a heading of 160 degrees while on watch, she'll and most other women will do exactally that. and when you run aground upon an island while she's at the helm.. it will be your falt and not hers as it was YOU that told here to stay on that heading.......
I read an article awhile back about why women are prefered as bus drivers over men.. they follow directions, and when told to shift the gears at 3200 rpm, thats exactally what they do, not 31 or 33 but 32..and if for some reason the motor wont wind past 31 hundred, they'll drive around all day in first gear..
but the article said, the busses lasted longer, needed fewer services and all round in beter condition, and why? because they were opperated by the book with no exceptions..
A friend of mine owns a company with over 300 women employed, NO MEN, because its an assembly line with repete work.. Men will quit after a few hours but women will work the line for years....
I've sat and watched my wife work making a wedding dress, for hours after hours.. doing work I dont believe any man could do.............
Face it guys, you might find that the art of sailing is at better odds with a woman at the tiller, instead of yourself.......

- better at keeping our space clean.... Debateable
- better at conversation... Just wish you would not do it when its my turn to sleep...
- better company... A1+
- better at leaving the heads in a useable state.... If you live with a pig... its by choice...

Haven't we been here before....
ROTFLMAO....
