I think it depends on how you define "buy" or "rent"........
If any fella thinks that keeping hand 100% in pocket and relying simply on charm and funny
stories (whether or not in Pigeon lingo. or shouted English
) - then they are gonna get to select from the choices they are paying for or be singlehanding
a longgggggggg time
. Whether that be 1st or 3rd World, most women are looking for a fella to bring at least something
to the table. 15 foot of rusty anchor
chain and a plastic bucket don't really count.
Got to also remember that in much of the world people live afloat because they can't afford ashore - so rather than you automatically being seen as a wealthy suitor with an idyllic lifestyle to share with a lucky gal, instead you have turned up as a peasant
...............imagine all the facilities onboard your boat were ashore. probably even a 60 foot cat would be considered no more than a 2 bed
condo........and that perception can only really be cured by putting hand in pocket.
The best route
? time on the plot. and speaking the same lingo. Or booze, drugs and clubbing (Music or wooden item
) for the shorter term arrangements.........
But for those with a regular circuit - a girl in every port (and different countries
) could be a long term acheivable goal
Just call 'em all the same nickname
