I can't answer what a woman wants that would be different from what a man wants.... but I can say most men are more comfortable *roughing it* with less creature comforts sort of thing. For example... when it's late and we've been watching a movie
and I am falling asleep... I would just go the our double in the aft cabin
and not bother putting a sheet, top sheet and *make the bed*... Wifey however wants to sleep between clean sheets
and so will make the bed
even if she is going to see the entire movie
Can you generalize that females don't like the sort of challenges then men seem to not think twice about? Who knows. I deal with one woman and have to honor and respect her comfort zone in exchange for her companionship. It's a fine deal.
Wifey is a bit... IMSHO overly cautious at times and sort of never lets her guard down and to do so would make her psychologically uncomfortable. If the wind
pipes up she gets concerned as if a gale is coming... which is possible but not likely. This fear means we have to do an immediate study of weather
forecasts... and take the proper measures if required... well in advance. I would sort of not do anything unless forecast
conditions were going to be very nasty. I have to explain to her... repeatedly... that small craft advisory is not something to be concerned about in most cases and offers more wind
and a more thrilling sail... not the type she likes by the way.
As far as earning some coin out there... I think a floating health
, fitness, therapy, yoga, etc. service
is a super idea... toss in hair cuts... and other beauty things for lady sailors... and you have a decent little low overhead business which should do fine.
If you like to cook or bake and so forth you can offer meals
on waves or something... like the proverbial *take away* food
when we're too lazy or tired to cook. I can see that working in crowded anchorages
which have VHF
chatter... where you could put the word out and monitor
for clients. You could limited your meal/food offerings.., to things like fresh croissants, bread, cookiers... or soups and pot pies even.
Or a provisioning service
if your anchored somewhere where there a lot of anchored cruisers...
