An easily collapsible Ultralight for keeping an eye out for coral head and other things. And either an RPG-7 with a dozen rockets or a 20mm cannon with half a dozen magazines.

Carsten, think about it. Why wouldn't a woman want to be pampered by her own cabana boy to bring her drinks, food, and rub sun tan lotion on her? If the guys can have their bikin clad topless harem, the girls can have cabana boys.

That said, have you ever HEARD a truly good blues harmonica player? Have you ever wondered what else a first rate harmonica player would be good at?

I can't really think of anything other than he would be an accomplished musician, have great hand & mouth coordination, very well developed lip and tongue muscles... all things that are great for harmonica players but what else...and just who's harmonica would he be playing with...

Re: The Cruisers "Nice to Have" Onboard (Luxuries?) List

Oh Raysea Lady and Nia,

What thoughts, what thoughts - Nevertheless - Hope you find all the cabana boys you want/need and they fit your description Raysea Lady.

Seriously - a harmonicaplayer, unless I'm mistaken, is person who has one of those funny things strapped on his chest that he pulls apart and pushes together, generating air flow which results in "music". In older times, the sailors called a smaller version "squeezeboxes". A mouth harmonica is one of those a true bluesman make you cry with.

I always thought those box-like things on a persons chest that he pulls apart and pushes in to make music was called an "accordion". My sister used to play one of them. And yes, a mouth harp in the hands of an artist can make you cry, laugh, cause mouths to drop open in amazement, hear God, and cause extensive dancing to occur. I guess that is why I like them so much.

PS... I cant help the way my mind thinks. I am a woman after all.

Re: The Cruisers "Nice to Have" Onboard (Luxuries?) List

Hi Nia,

yes you are right - it is called an accordion. In Danish it is called an harmonica and a blues harp is called a mouth harp. I sometimes tend to get my languages a little confused. Especially when things have similar names in most of them.

And ahhhh to be party to a woman's thoughts.................every mans dream

hope your wind comes from aft

I have the perfect ultralight aircraft for you..I sold one to a fellow once that he kept in his bomb shelter,but he would not take the flight instruction ..Its not a useful tool if you dont want the instruction! I thought about putting a paint ball gun on a small turret and mounting it under the harness and then fly over one of those paintball tournements and letting loose on the unsuspecting paint ball warriors below...It is also great for spotting fish and whales and finding green plants in the woods..DVC

Did I miss it or where is the 'single male who is a a great chef, mechanic, massage therapist, diver, fisherman, musician, romantic and ridiculously rich'? No 'boys' thanks - I agree with Zee - the slightly older male will be just fine (oh - add doesn't get sea sick)
