I did this a year or two ago on another fourm and it was a big success.
The jest of it is.. rather your "Better Half" regardless if thats girl friend, boyfriend, Husband or wife...is "In or Out"
with the idea or desire to make crusing a major part of their life. Pictures are not mandatory... but became over there a very cool addition and attraction to the thread as it puts faces to names and is a great reference later on to come back to when trying to remember who is who around here. So Please dont be bashful..post your story and pictures
it really does become a lot of fun.
I will Start.
My wife is claustrophobic..not REALLY badly but enough where she gets "That Feeling" ....what ever the heck that is.
She was born and raised in Alaska
..they had planes not boats... so it has taken me quite a few years of power boating
, gradually getting her acclimated to being out on the water
of any distance from shore.
She would rather be on deck
then below as well for obvious reasons with her condition.
Soooo..finding the right Blow Boat that wasent caveish or repressive in her opinion took us a while...One day we were invited aboard a fellow marina tenants Irwin
53 we just happend to run into on the dock
and were invited below...well that did it for her...She said "Ya..I could do this"..
She did not have to say that twice..
Well we could not afford that particular model but found a 41 that was bright ,Arie and open enough where "that feeling" did not surface all that much..The rest is history
and she has enjoyed what little sailing we have been able to get on the boat so far....The second sail was a little dicey due to the extreme weather
but she is more then willing to keep at it.
She will also be the first to tell you Boating
in general has become one of her favorite things to do or look forward to each year.
She is my sweetie and my love for life... and I am a lucky man to have her..
She may never want to or come to grips with crossing an ocean with me but is eager to fly and meet me and the boat anywhere in the world she says....Ill take that as being IN!..
