Well then.... that's an important contribution to inter-sex understanding. I'm backing the women on this one.

Have to say for keeping it simple....this is sounding like a pretty good summation for the OP question. I can see how this simple statement covers so many stresses.

Somewhere way back in this thread I was astounded at the thought of using "baggies" on a boat as being a comfortable option.

Spoke too soon didn't I.........guess what you have to do in your own house after a good earthquake..........yup the dreaded baggies

In a heartbeat!!! Handsome, excellent sailor - what's not to love? A few irreverent comments? Bah.

Unfortunately, I'm the wrong generation for you, so I'll have to wait for another offer. Haha!! Then I'd have everything I want on a boat.

LOL Ram, I am sure you have been doing fine.

All parts have their special purpose and some more than one.

Rubbing her feet though can be a confused man’s way of surviving whatever emotion has gripped his lady in a demonic way (as Mark’s photo shows).

The secret is to be totally supportive without offering any quick fix and to make sure the family jewels are well below the extended legs.

Try not to make eye contact...

Check out www dot Findacrew dot com You may be quite surprised that you find that someone you are looking for.
