Re: What Ssailboat do you Think is a Chick Magnet

I think the only real answer is a boat that communicates the qualities of it's owner that the girl likes in a man - confidence, stability, adventure, etc... Like a car, a watch, or clothing, it is not the object that attracts the woman, but the character of the man who possesses them. Some objects help project that character, and some do not.

..gaff rigged schooners are elegant and magnificent(a lil hard to sail sola),
and i adore my garden design ketch ....

Re: What Sailboat do you Think is a Chick Magnet

I have an Idea!
As a chick, what creature comforts do you look for in a man...er... I mean boat. I'm building as we speak so I might as well stack the deck in my favor. With my looks I need all the help I can get.

Aw crap I forgot more than half of you are here too - or better, in the Caribbean - and you have boats.
No, sorry for the confusion. I was replying to Jackdale, the other Calgary guy.

Or in the anchor forum certainly catamarans can be in the game ... But not so much the minivan/motorhome/condo kind ... Those too are usually bought to satisfy a wife. Nothing wrong with that. But not the subject of this thread.

Once a wife is installed all the magnetism is methodically shut off as she grips her helpless prey and sucks the ..... Nevermind

someone once told me he was refiggering life and searching for inner beauty--and married a meth addict..LOL....
i look for inner beauty and inner and outer character--even character lines and marks are good-lol--i appraise each individual as an individual--so i dont seek anything--i just find....
works for both men and boats....

How true!

A true chick magnet? For certain, a Hans Christian; a big Hans Christian...in perfect condition.

Depends on the chick you are trying to attract.
