Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I'm a 50yo man, recently separated. She WAS coming with me, but that's a whole'nother story. (Spell check is clearly prejudiced and I am offended! "Whole'nother" is a single, multi-syllabic word here in the South.) Anyway, I'm a lifelong sailor, here and there boat owner, long time charterer/CCCapt, and I'm looking for a FP Orana with cold American cash in my hands. the cruising kitty is topped off (sold one business and getting the other ready) Plan to bring her to Wilmington, NC and live aboard (in a boat, down by the river...while getting the other business ready for sale), then downwind wherever it may blow.

Seeking to hear the trials, tribulations and advice of SMLAaC'ers (SLAC'ers maybe??!?). Any extra focus on the vice portion (of the adVICE) via PM will be greatly appreciated; got a lot of catching up to do.

Get this thread back on track!

A Man, His Ship, and the SEA! Ahoy!!

Sincerely... jumping in with,
BothFeet

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

what a a sailing thread ;-). I didn't have as much fun browsing in a while. And the solution was so easy. Find the women who's gonna finish the boat together with him and sail happily ever thereafter ;-)

cheerio

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

Wow, I can't remember the last time I read a 22 page topic

Very entertaining.

I considered using this thread to whine about men not wanting to live on a boat, but since I only have a 29' mono hull, I think that already explains it.

Maybe thats the way it is in the Netherlands but it's the other way around here. "She" never wants to live on the boat...

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

It depends on who you ask here - and probably in the US as well

Male single liveaboards: women just don't want to live on a boat!
Female single liveaboards: men just don't want to live on a boat!

Disclaimer: I know 3 single female liveaboards in the Netherlands, and lots of men living aboard.
Not a lot of women here moving onboard without a partner who really wants to ...

Stuck with lousy choices in marriage? Seems your wife saw the light.....

We have a saying in Ireland. You cant help the helpless.

No more to be said.

Being happily married for over 45 years, I feel like a lurker for occasionally peeking into this thread.
Nonetheless, I can't help but to give kudos to this response !

I remember what it was like when I was in basic training in the US Navy.
Everyone was in their late teens or early 20's and the testosterone was running high and fast.

The stories of who was who got really amazing; just one example:
"My dad owns the biggest Chevy dealership in Arizona and when I get out of basic, he's going to give me a brand new 427 Corvette."

On the other hand, the quietest guy I ever met during training showed me pics of a 45' wood trimaran he and a couple other guys were building in a rented parking lot Sherman Oaks CA.
I don't know what became of that project, but about once a week I saw new pics mailed to him of the progress (training was only 6 weeks in 1966).

Sounds close to the time frame of a
similar multihull which was being built
around then in Ventura, CA
near the railroad tracks and California St
somewhere near Front St. and Ash St. The
story goes that one of the young guys that
was building it fell from the mast while on
the hard (inside a warehouse I think). He
did not live. I believe that put an end to
the building of that boat, unless I have
the story wrong. Maybe someone knows
what became of that boat also.

Apologies to the OP, although I don't think
this thread could suffer any more with
regard to thread drift.

As far as picking up any dates, if required at all, I'd do what I do now. Rent a car.

The mobile apartment has absolutely zero impact on anyone's opinion as we first meet because nobody sees it.

I've never met any womnan who wasn't impressed with my former mobile apartment and it was tiny/ugly. Spent many weeks with various girls in their mid 20's over the past few years taking it to mountains, on 1000 mile road trips, into Canada, etc. All had a great time and wanted to continue. I had the damn boat to do though instead.

I'm not accepting closed minded women. Only open minded women who are up for adventure.

Exploring your state, for example, is something I've never done and would enjoy.

I can always drive a mobile apartment to the seashore. Taking a catamaran that takes up a few highway lanes in width to Colorado? Not gonna happen.
This is a silly, the OP is not serious. He is just a guy who thinks he is God's gift to 25 year old woman who have no serious plans of their own, because if they did, they won't just jump into his boat, car whatever, leave everything behind to follow him around.

If those are the kind of woman you are looking for, just go to a bar and find the drunkest girl you can, ask her if she has a brain and any plans for her future and when she says "no", then she is the one for you. Go party on down and continue down your path until you are 52 and look up and realize that you have wasted your life. By then, you should be on woman number 15,000 or whatever grandiose number you think you imagine. I agree with some of the other posters, you are incredibly immature and your looks don't and never will matter. Everybody gets older, that is just a fact of nature.

In fact, I will go so far to say, that you are the kind of man that as you age, the women will get younger and eventually you will end up on TV showing your face for soliciting to underage girls in Thailand.

So Honey, what is the color of the gum you are chewing? Classic pick up line. Not mine.
