I bet it's all a clever cover story. Sort of like Newt Gingrich covers up being a (post op) transexual by constantly getting re-married.

Re: A Woman's Needs

While I am supposed to be reading my HAM Radio book I was catching up on this thread that I had not seen since before we left last winter for the Bahamas...Definitely entertaining...much more than the Ham license manual...

Where has the 'Women Afloat' forum link gone on the main page?

I never realized I was such anomaly in regards to the Women's Race...I love to sail a mono hull, I really like living aboard, I use less toilet paper always than a rabbit size puff, I have been known to paint my finger nails, and prefer my toe nails painted...I do like practicing good personal hygiene but not at the detriment of my life experience.

I do NOT like High Heels...

I think generalizations are so dangerous in so many aspects of our lives - assumptions run a close second.

I do find all of this discussion so interesting, because as I have told my husband more than once, when a perfectly put together woman walks by, with her hair, makeup, size 0 jeans on, high heels, in a highly 'maintained' state of being I sometimes do feel like she and I must be a different species.

I don't make assumptions about who she is, but it is evident where she puts her energy, money, and time...

and what is funny is some men's reactions to her, while they say they may prize a low maintenance, adventurous type, their head may still turn and whip lash may ensue from following the perfectly maintained woman across the room...suddenly the gallons of water and product that all of that requires is no longer a consideration...

It is comforting to me that some things never change...even if it shouldn't be...

Re: A Woman's Needs

Schwoo! I found the forum is still there...just had been going to the quick links - not seeing the original forum lay out does still exist...Glad 'Woman Afloat' did not sink...

What makes you think they are thinking with their brains when that happens?

I am a guy i can go with out showers heat food large amounts of toilet paper, but I know women can't so any input would be great thanks

An ATM would be a good addition.

If she's a patient woman with a good sense of adventure and humor, then just get on board and go! But for the first few days/weeks/months, stay close to friendly ports - you'll be learning what is and is not needed.

Here are a few tips of my own, however:
Feminine products - always keep a small supply hidden from her. This will save you a midnight dinghy trip. This includes Midol and tampons at a minimum, but could incude nail polish remover, conditioner, deodorant, perfume, skin lotions, razors, a grooming kit, and whatever other doodads you observe her using when she leaves the bathroom door open a crack.

Elbow room - How do you install elbow room? That is your problem my friend! This device will need to be installed in the galley, head, and dressing room at least.

Cushioned bumpers: Anywhere a head goes.

Candles: Not the skinny white ones in your emergency kit

Also, you need to take into account the things YOU will need that you did not need before:
- Daily showers and shaves
- A different brand of deoderant
- A more expensive brand of cologne
- A new pair of flip flops every 2-3 months
- A yoga mat
- Haircuts

And then there are the things the boat will need that, somehow, the original designers failed to anticipate:
- Decorative drawer pulls
- Curtain rods
- Paintable interior surfaces
- Glass, ceramic, or high quality plastic tableware and cutely designed custom racks to hold them
- Enough open deck space for a yoga mat
- A captain's bathroom

Do not bother with these items:
- Dishwasher (your boat comes with one preinstalled)

God save you if she needs a hair dryer, air conditioning, or a clothes iron

LOL! So true. And this is why they find themselves with women who need all those silly things ArtM describes. If you want the put-together, creamy woman who turns your head, just know you are going to pay for it big time, in hassles, changes to your boat and yourself, in all sorts of ways.
Better to follow that woman walking to her boat, with the dirty clothes, pinned back hair, 5 day shadow on her legs. She probably shares your priorities and dreams. And once the day is over, and you slip into bed, it's all just as beautiful.
