Re: AT SEA, What do you want from your Woman or Man?

I want her to OBEY ! LOL! I really want her to enjoy life onboard. I run the boat
and keep it running and she tells me when and where to go. We like hanging out togeather most of the time. We make a fun and pretty good crew. The 2 cats
are lazy and don't do much more than demand and run around all night.
PS Tp12, they adapted in 2wks to 2 months. now it is just home to them

Cool, thanks for sharing. Were yours rescue cats or did you have them from kittens?

Regarding what I would want in a partner cruising - I view having a life partner as a team situation and I don't see living on a boat and cruising as any different in how you want that relationship to work. We work together and utilise each others strengths and try and cover each others weaknesses. Good communication is essential to work out what those are and develop a mutually agreeable plan as to how to do it. Having patience with each other, knowing we all get tired and grumpy and being aware that life is stressful, on or off the boat, and that our primary goal is to look after each other and get through anything as a team.

Exactly, it all is needed in life, as at SEA.

What I really like in my partner is my private part.

I'd be suspect if he owned a pair of speedos for anything other than swimming laps!

Re: AT SEA, What do you want from your Woman or Man?

My partner is so amazing at maintenance, repairs, electronics, mechanics, building and finding solutions to any problem; is extremely clever, knowledgeable, intelligent and resourceful, but best of all makes me laugh and loves me. Those are the things i like and make it worth putting up with the traits i find difficult.
