The guilty dragoness lording over her cache of shoes.


And more...
Doesnt she realise that there are starving boat store owners who really need that money? Just think about the amount of "donations" you could have made at the local West Marine!! Sigh!!

I never ask questions I don't want the answer to.

Re: How Many Pairs of Shoes do you Carry Aboard?

High Heels,

I think there is something called "barefoot cruising?"

I will also show the better part of valor and run like hell!!!!

Eddie Murphy - Funny Stuff!!!!

Carstenb is running now?!? Hope you boys are wearing good shoes...

Target9000 - I can't believe your wife sat there for that photo!?!? Does she know you posted it here? Thank God my husband didn't get his camera out the day my shoes were all over the dining room....looked like some 'crunchy granola Diva's' closet had just been bombed

I had the dressiest Birkenstocks a woman could own...they had rhinestone buckles for the straps...wore them to work all the time...they were completely worn out but I SO did not want to throw them away, but I did...still miss those beauties...That and my Earth shoes that everyone makes fun of me wearing...I am a bodyworker, I know what bad shoes do to your spine...

Where are your wife's cowgirl boots Target?!? Every gal needs a pair of those too!

OK, who else wants to make a comment and start sprinting?!?

And yes, I have heard of barefoot cruising...and yes, I didn't wear shoes very often in the Bahamas - mostly my flops and Keens....

HIgh Heels,

Have no fear for Target. I'm sure he will be spending many years either sleeping on the couch or sharing the doghouse with mans best friend.

I'm a coward. I'd never take such a picture. Matter of fact, I'd never count my wife's shoes.

Re: How Many Pairs of Shoes do you Carry Aboard?

Target is obviously a newlywed, right carstenb?!? He invades the inner sanctum and then takes pictures...that is like taking photos with a flash at the Louvre or a nuclear power plant...That man is either a daredevil or a newlywed...

Re: How Many Pairs of Shoes do you Carry Aboard?

High Heals actually wanted to bring her Cowgirl boats on the boat, and the hat too. I put my foots down on the boots.

Actually, I have told her many times, "You can bring anything you want on the boat. You just can't bring EVERYTHING you want."

You know, I just told her I wanted to show her and her glorious collection of shoes off for all to see. "Thats right baby, pose, toss your hair."

Wow......do you sleep with one eye open? Or do you lock her in a different room?

I would be worried about being "startled" awake by a lady having a walking bad dream with a shoe (her claim anyway).

I just keep telling her, if it is murder she doesn't get the insurance money.

Re: How Many Pairs of Shoes do you Carry Aboard?

My suggestion is to keep all your shoes cause you never know when you might need to celebrate the overthrow of some Middle Eastern Dictator.

Is that a particular problem on a Westsail 32? Glad I don't have to worry about such things on my boat.
