Single Women Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look

I'm a guy.
I know a total of ONE woman who lives aboard. Kathy. She is in her gray-haired years on an old 30' monohull that does not appear to be all that seaworthy. There are funky decorations on deck and a ton of bird poop. She has been in the marina for a looong time. Her dock lines are crusty. I think most people avoid her like most people avoid an old lady with too many cats.
I truly dig her.
She swears like a pirate and rambles on about the genetic differences among bears on different Alaskan islands with whiskey breath. I think she is a bit lonely and her head just gets filled up with too many words.

1. Do single women get treated oddly by others when they are single liveaboards? I think my friend Kathy is treated better by men than women at the dock, but I'm not sure why.

2. Are single females living aboard escaping society more than the single males living aboard? Is that rude? Is it just more accepted to see a guy in that position?

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

I'd love to meet one that

single-hands across oceans

and also pulls off the girly-girl routine, little cocktail dress, stilettos, the lot when she feels like it.

Not saying she'd have any interest in me mind you, just saying I'd genuinely love to get to know her.

Hey John,
The stilettos on a sailboat always have me scratching my head. I suppose a large yacht works, but they seem out of place on a medium/small sailboat to me.

I wonder if in the future we'll look back on high heels with shame like we do with corsets from a century ago?

Stiletto heels play havoc with wooden decks.

And for feet.. if women were honest they'd admit these 3-4 inch heels are the Western version of foot binding.

In London the men compel it by issuing 'Dress Codes' for their female workers.
I feel intimidated by women taller than me..

There's a reason they're named after a weapon.

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

Iíve met about 3 single females on boats I think. Two of them were no different then single guys on boats in their dress and demeanor, the third was very asocial, possibly a little mentally ill.

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

asocial folks not necessarily mentally ill... people suck. some of us with higher than 90 iq intelligence keep away from the others by choice due to lack of desire to tolerate bs.
i, for example, remain away from most others as most others are not up to conversation or practicality. there is judgementalism, there is projection of their illnesses onto others, such as calling folks squatters or mentally ill, and there are other issues. i was paid well for many years to treat and mebbe cure others. i am dead tired of the bs proffered by judgementalists disagreeing with something they donot even know or understand.
and then there are the alleged repair artistes...they squawk about how good their work is despite many returns for burning or sinking.... ok..if this is a standard, then standards are in direst need of revision.
i choose to remain away from most others. my choice.
am done with cretins and balderdash. cannot tolerate hypocrites liars cheats and scam artists. met many in my different modes of gypsying in my life. i donot need the crap spewed by others to junk up my lifestyle.
most of the females i have met soloing on ocean have been of similar mindset.
and you guys wonder why you cannot "get" a female sailor?? hahahahahahaha
we understand your con and ignore it.

want a female sailor??
ditch your testy-osterone addled attitude and learn to tolerate others better than i tolerate your scams cons and passive aggressive balderdash. women get tired of the constant push for touchy feely invasions of borders and boundaries
sadly , this is the result of observation and experience.

want stilletto heels?? get your lapdance at the local girlee bar.

pirate Re: Single Women Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look

I've met a few solo female sailors.. Laura in Panama on a rtw.. Pat in the Azores doing a Transat, tho' she had a couple on board as crew for a 1st ever ocean crossing.. a couple in the Med.. Maxine, French and Olga, Dutch.. they're out there.. just not as abundant as the male.

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

i think the idea is to find a cool place to sail, then ye meet many sola females...
iff you present in a respectable manner.
please keep hands to self until given permission to touch.
some of you are so touchy feely/grabby as to know no boundaries and that simply does not work.
pretty does not mean easy. many males forget that small issue.
and not all of us NEED some male to repair our boats for us.... we want to find our own repair folks --perhaps even with credentials. what a novel idea for some of you.
i am in a hib area-- folks sail in fol,ks sail out... repairs here are pricey unless you know someone, thankfully i do, and is why i came here, specifically.
in my cruising this coast i have encountered all kinds, naturally, including one who bragged proudly on his recreational and unprotected sex cravings... uhoh... not my type of misadventure... forward, no boundaries, notchmaker. must conquer all females on planet.. men call women in this mode whores. yup whores.
donot be a whore. we donot appreciate this disrespect.
