Great lists. I guess I would list some of the same things:

- Lack of care with/for the boat and it's systems
- Dishonesty
- Being too fastidious to do the dirty jobs
- insisting on doing things "their way", unwillingness to compromise
- has attitude " I don't need to look at the chart, I know where I am' just before grounding the boat
- yelling when things get tough
- mean to my cat, or me! Ha-hah
and - low libido (what a disappointment that would be!)

I'd like to think I'd know about the smoking &/or drug thing beforehand. But it's amazing how easy it is to get fooled!

Excellant question! What they all said! Except I can tolerate smoking cigs.

I suppose that the deal breakers we're talking about would be the same on land as on water. I'll think a bit and see if I can add.

OK, it's the dude that won't let you do anything! Doesn't trust you at the helm, won't let you haul a line. Does everything himself. So I get to sit, bored and pouty

Come sail with me! We'll flip a coin to see who gets the foredeck in those 6-to-8's..

19 years of setting the berth on fire? Yeah I can understand reluctance in letting that go.

Was that a dare? Are you calling me out? Come ride with me on I 95 in the NE, in a small car. I'll take 6-8' seas any day over that.
