You look ravishing. Keep sanding.

Re: "marinized wife"

If anyone here tells her I posted that pic and statement (she is not at all fat and I am only partially that lazy) I will track them down and put a dead fish in their bilge.

That is, assuming I survive the keel hauling.

Re: "marinized wife"

Being marinized means she is fresh water cooled, the rigging is held up with a corrosion resistant gear and all the fittings are either shinny gold or silver color. And she should shut down if she loses power.

Re: "marinized wife"

It was simple for me. I just taught the kids to sail and she didn't want to be left out. Next thing I knew, she was ASA certified and senior to me on paper. No regrets at all.

Methinks you WILL pay for that one

Re: "marinized wife"

I only post pictures of my marinized wife that she approves. (I'll live longer that way) So here's my submission.

Re: "marinized wife"

Take it nice and easy, get her to helm and stay in the cockpit while you do the anchor work, make for much better martial harmony, and as they what goes on tour stay on tour, don’t allow cross over arguments. Sail in company with other boats, and meet up on ashore to chat and have fun it makes a weekend much more memorable. Perhaps join a cruising yacht club. As a UK based sailor, the weather and tides play an equal part, help her to understand them both and visualise where the wind is coming from. And the understand that a tiller is a pivot was a great help for me when I was first leaning to sail, all those years ago, and there is nothing like experience to teach you what to do. Other than enjoy......

Oh btw do you need her the next couple of weeks? My boat bunny doesnt do well with power tools or anything dusty, dirty, or greasy but she can make pina coladas well enough. Actually she has also mastered the mai tai and te Singapore sling, and does passable frozen margaritas. I could throw in some booze and a nice umbrella for your chair if you are agreeable to a temporary swap. I really need to haul the boat out for some tlc.

That's my wife standing at the shrouds, trimming the spinnaker while I grind for her (she's wearing the red foulies). This is about thirty seconds before we broached...

She used to be terrified of heeling, but racing cured her of that. She's totally comfortable and focused on what she's doing in this photo. We had only three crew on a boat that usually had six (it's a C&C 115).

She still gets scared sometimes, but usually by really big conditions like beating up the straight of Georgia in 30 knots with 6-10' steep chop coming into the cockpit over the dodger from time to time. Can't say I was super happy that day either.
