Gada girl and SaltyMonkey have good lists.

I just need someone who will be nice to me. For me that wraps up most of the lists and adds some other behaviors I find attractive.

Hey Salty,

If you find the mate and she already has a boat, that would solve both searches! There is no perfect boat, just as no perfect mate - happiness comes from loving the imperfections, as someone said above.

It's all your own choice.

With that it seems we've gone full circle so I will offer this about boxes, relationships and the risk of not taking risks....




I love the color pink! Secondary value; must love Dave Mathews!
Gada- we REALLY need to hang out on the water together!

oh no! I sail solo for various reasons the most important being driving someone else crazy. Believe me.

I can attest to this.

The nurse who removed my catheter after surgery pulled it out as if she was pull-starting an outboard motor.

Ever heard of "Around Alone"?

I was at a bar the other day just as they opened, and I bought a round alone.

i could not add to the list so i didnt...the lists all seem to cover the important things--i really donot deal well with folks who lie and have no concern for others. no hypocrites and no smoke and mirrors. i have a boat-- i have my life. i donot need to bring in weirdness and clutter. i would rather sail alone than have to deal with all the drama and bs others have to carry around. if someone cannot be real, why try???
