And as to the "partner" -- sounds more like a dictatorship than a partnership to me!

exactly! she started barking orders at me from day one! ugh! 10 days of boat ownership together and we're enemies now!

Re: Glass on a sailboat

Good agreements make good partners! If your present agreement not working, time to write another one. Fair enuf that she does not want to use certain things onboard (whether glasses or whatever) but no reason why she should have a problem with things being stored onboard (whether "yours" or the boat's) that are unused by her......you will likely have to reciprocate.

Me would be looking for different boat use days! and having a mechanism for selling up all written in the agreement. Downside is that you might not end up with the boat - upside is you won't be "married" to her!

Re: Glass on a sailboat

Hiya Mich! You can always sell your stake in the boat, to her or to someone else. Who needs a belly-aching sailing partner!

I do hope you have a formal written agreement for this partnership. I would consult a lawyer before getting into the disolving of the partnership unless you have a formal procedure in the written partnership.

I'm sure you think it's about glassware, but it's really about a boat partner with whom you can't even agree about glasses!

It will get worse before it gets better. Get out now.

Of course you knew that if you drink wine.

The people who said this isn't really about glass are right IMO. It's a power struggle.

Re: Glass on a sailboat

Drinking good wine out of plastic is like making love with a raincoat.

WE have porcelain plates and glass glasses. WE also have some crystal wine glasses for those special bottles, and we have crystal cognac glasses for that.

WE have rarely broken anything. Stuff a sock or some paper towels into the glass and it will never break due to bad weather.

WE have sailed through 40+ knot gales and 3-4 meter high waves and never had a damn thing break.

Kick your partner off unto the hard and sail away, drinking some champagne out of glass flutes (we have a set of those also)

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

Hiya Mich! Find your partner someone who can keep her "busy"...if you get my drift. When you get her hooked up for good, she will not even remember what a sailboat looks like.

We have disagreed on everything. She is a bully and it was my boat before bringing her on just 10 days ago. Tomorrow she buys me out and I already have another one I'm checking out tomorrow afternoon. I feel like I'm dodging a bullet. I decided to let my attachment to the boat go. No more partners for me. The last 10 days have been hell! lol

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

Hiya Mich! You'll be just fine. Some learning experiences are painful, but you get to be a better person once they are over. You should be very excited in finding a new boat. Keep us posted, for continuous moral support, among other silly support. Good luck!

Re: Glass on a Sailboat

Should be great for you, Michelle... if there turns up to be problems with the Cat 27, just keep looking, you will find the right boat for you. The most important thing is to move on with your life and leave the bad parts behind. I've done it a few times myself and never looked back. Have a lady friend who is in her 60's now, never married, who turns over her partner every 7 years. None had ever last longer and most less... she is one of the happiest, must well adjusted gal I know. She also happens to be blind and skis with a guide!
You seem like the type who is going to come out a winner regardless of what/who is against you. Good luck in your search for your soulboat. Send us all some pics when you settle on the right one. Cheers, Phil
