Re: A Woman's Needs

I sail/cruise with no water maker, 40 gallon inboard water tanks (which I installed myself because I couldn't live with the 10 gallons we used to hold), no hot water - but solar bags are great for the occasional hot shower, no dishwasher (dishwasher?! is this a joke) I did put in an inverter because I prefer to have both AC and DC power, but have never used it for a hairdryer or curling iron, I don't own either. No heater, though I live in the Caribbean. I do prefer to have my own transportation, i.e. dingy of my own so I'm not stuck on someone elses schedule or at least a kyak. I can't live on a boat that I can't opperate, so it's important to make sure your significant other is familiar with the motor, sails, outboard, ect. Make her your partner not your hood ornament and you might find her more valuable than you could ever imagine and the little things that she needs to feel at home are not so bad and you can figure out how to accomplish them together. good luck, good people are out there, if you are a good person they might be easier to find/keep.

I could strip it out to reduce weight and load in a few IBCs. I think I could get enough diesel on board to make the crossing but I dont fancy it in anything more than a 6' swell.

Easier to catch the plane.

Where is Mark anyway?

After his last Atlantic crossing, he'd better take oars.

Re: A Woman's Needs

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm There is nothing like high maintenance on the high seas. Been there, done that, still doing it. A great female companion on board is a wonderful kind of nightmare when it comes to making sure everything is just right. My 2 cents, do everything that all has suggested. Then sit and think of everything that you may need just in case. Be aware that after you do all of this; don't be disheartened when it still isn’t enough. More than likely, after you finish rigging her for her, it will still be trial and error with a few tweaks here and there to refine the process. She is obviously a lucky lady to have a guy that wants to outfit the other woman to please his main woman.

Re: A Woman's Needs

seems to me that on board my boat, I am the one concerned with making sure there a enough engine and other spare parts. I make sure the enigne runs. has been men i know wANT ME TO PARE DOWN my spares..LOL... i think the only high maintenance on high seas is the soul who doesnt know how to sail and doesnt know what he is going to do once out in the deep blue sea with no sight of land. i am fine with that--even with dark moon. has been the men i know who have been higher maintenance than i ever was..LOL....

Re: A Woman's Needs

Heh, I have had male friends as well as female friends that well, what is the best way to put it, their sails didn't quite make it to the top of the mast. I would never take a chance with anyone unless I knew and they know what it's about. I love to sail. One wrong mishap and the fun is gone. About 25 years ago, I lost a good friend when the boom came around and knocked him into the drink. It wasn't on my boat and I wasn't there, still, it was a wake-up call. Yes, I think it is true the saltier that sailor is, the type of gear they carry differs. I know what you mean though. As the skipper, you're constantly trying to think of what is needed and what is extra. I equate it to the Space Shuttle. While we might not be hundreds of miles away in the void of space from help when trouble arises, if we are out at sea or even in the middle of the bay, it's not like you can run over to the ships store if something breaks or worse, if a trip to the ER is needed. I don't know about you, but I try to keep extras of certain items just in case something goes awry. It's a personal thing as to what is considered to be extra. The important thing is that at least someone is thinking. Never-the-less, a funny thing happens when love is involved and the word extra get re-defined. LOL!!
