Sailing style? Like die hard racer or multi hull fanatic? Of laid back cruiser type appreciating the value of arriving a little slower, but in style so he can enjoy the quiet anchorage watching the sun set while sipping cold gin and tonic....that kind of style?

kinda..is kinda how folks get along and how folks go thru life-- same with how y e deal with the boat and things that happen.how emergencies are handled and how serious repairs are dealt with, lotsa things. grounding--what do ye REALLY do-- not what ye tell folks we do..lol.
that kinda stuff

but ye kin keep the gin and tonic. i will drink water, thankyou.
is it teamwork or is it a free for all? does the team take care of each other or is it self preservation.. that kinda thing , tooo...

hmmmm Style.

I like to sail sail sail. Tune tune tune. Microknots. Sail sail sail. Tune tune tune. Microknots.

Watch that ship! Watch that weather. Mark that plot! Every hour.

Sail sail sail. Tune tune tune. Microknots. Sail sail sail. Tune tune tune. Microknots.

Offshore. Alone.
Whats over there? Whats over here?
Inshore. Alone.
Whats over there? Whats over here?

But...

being at anchor I am bored s**t-less in a most grumpy psycho-monkey way.

Isn't that where the soulmate comes in? to keep you busy at anchor?

Wish I could fish, Zee. Need a teacher. Haha! The "what do I do once he bites my hook" thing is what's got me stymied!

that is th easy part--lol--if it is dinner, i reel that fish in an ddont let it breathe any water--lol-- if i wanna play with my food, i will let the fish dive-- also if i dont see it hit--lol-- when ist dives, donot let it under the boat---before starting to reel in--place boat in irons.
i also call the other crew when short handing, nd we both get that fishie in...dont lift it with the line that it is hooked by-- allow the other person to lean down into it and grab it .-- a gaff is a good thing, as is a net with a long handle-- but get the fishie as close to boat as ye can before showing it the net-- lol a king i had wanted to run when he saw my net on him-- so i had to sneak it in there on him.. he was yummmmmy.....3 ft long king. smallest was a baby tuna escaping from a shark--another baby--lol i caught that tooo easily... and young-- wait til tuna get bigger than 2 ft. they are a bit mushy when young. hay--was dinner- he bit my hook-- was fair game-- yummy --just a tad soft.

Yeah, but what about all that flopping around in the boat, and some have teeth! Yikes! I think I need a mate with fishing skills. Then I'll cook it! LOL. Or better yet, I'll buy fresh catch from fishermen with extra. Haha!

lol i put them into a bucket, head downe. then i gt my fillet knife--- aint some---is ALL FISHIES IN SEA HAVE BIG**S TEETH!!!!!! always use steel leader. never place fingers in mouth of fishie. ouchies !!!!!!! or toes.i let em sit on the cockpit sole as i clean em.(is clean--i make sure before cutting the fish)
i pull em out by the tail, allow em to breathe air instead of water, and clean em. king=steak em, others--fillet em. give the remains to the kitty and sea gods and sharks. this is when way out in deep water an more than 100 mi from shore. if you have amate liking fishing, the fish catcher csn clean fish, exceppt margo, she gets a designated cleaner. lol.

when fishie bites, holler like a madwoman, someone will fix it for ye.
just call out
FISH ON
loudly. more than one time if necessary. call them out!!!!

There are lots of mis-matchings even when most other aspects of life and personality line up nicely.Tough to find someone who matches up to an Alaskan oilfield worker on a 2 week on - 2 week off schedule who lives in Alaska in the summer riding a motorcycle and then in the winter lives on a boat in St Martin. But never say never I guess.
