Perfect cover story. Your friends can be "prospective buyers" and your beer cruise with them can be a "sea trial". Good luck fooling her though!

Does she understand this communication, or did were you ambiguous?

If yes to the first, then she is INSANE.

EDIT:

I have no F**King idea how I would vote given this.,,
So I'm supposed to go sailing on somebody else's boat, but not mine???

You were ABSOLUTELY no help... Except... given the opulent examples given by you about the luxury RV's she has decided to leave me for some Salty Monkey Love... So I guess this post actually worked and my problem is solved....

Re: HappyMdR's SAILING relationship poll !!!

Your problem is Yours and you are a selfish missisipi pond sucker placing her memory and person on here. If she was reading this I'd say she should sell the kids and get rid of you and get a boat of her own and an unlisted phone number and find her own well hung crew that can also cook.

Go crew for someone else while waiting to sell. Sell the stupid boat and leave the poor girly alone with that lovely dream. This if she is not coming back for a final romantic sail before the sale.

I'll be in my 5 wheeler waiting.

Oh I get to vote now.

Wow, talk about a self-serving post! I'm surprised SM didn't actually mention his prehensile tail.

I wouldn't count on it .

HappyMdR are you seriously taking advice from a bunch of crusty salty male sailors on this relationship defining issue?

Why not? Most of us have had hundreds, some thousands, of really successful albeit, short, relationships. In fact many have said to me, "Come on Joe, I love you long time."

This is an idiotic thread and hard to believe that we are talking about adults and not adolescents. Really DUDE... grow up and think for yourself.

Re: HappyMdR's SAILING relationship poll !!!

I've always pulled the beg for forgiveness card......tell her is was all business, your robotic risk/reward unemotional Vulcan analysis ways cannot be quashed.

Then come the odd looks and the emotional non-calculated arguments that no one can ever truly understand....

You're F'd.................

Re: HappyMdR's SAILING relationship poll !!!

I have a better idea. Keep the boat..don't sell her memories. It's only money. It stands to reason that a man with two boats should be twice as happy as a man with one boat.
