Reading your post Alan, and Dawn's words, substantiates why I committed to my husband today to seriously consider cruising...well actually we shook on going cruising, not just seriously considering it...(*&^%^% I shook on it)...I have never gone back on something that I have shaken on...

Back to my point, Thank You for sharing your inner most thoughts...they reiterate why my husband and I really do need to go, why he needs to get out of the corporate rat race, and if we don't find a way to get him out and happy again, how our journey together could be greatly impacted.

I am glad that you reclaimed your marriage, your health, and your life!!!!

Bravo for you! Will keep you posted on mine and my husband's reclaimation...this is my very first post on CF...

Take care, my best to you and Dawn!

Welcome aboard High Heels and kudos to you for supporting your husband and your marriage.

You'll be glad to know that Wheels is still here (you replied to a post from 2006) and that as far as we know Dawn still puts up with him even if he is a Kiwi softie ;-)

If you really commit to this boat stuff be prepared to change your name to "stinky boat shoes." - Ha , ha...

Thanks for the warm welcome Ex-Calif!

My husband came over and I let him know that I had posted for the first time...so I read it to him...

It turns out he has been in touch with Wheels, before we bought our Westerly-Fulmar regarding ferrocement boats...

I have had stinkey boat shoes...I raced in college way back when on an old IOR boat. I had this huge crush on this guy. He stepped aboard the boat and we proceeded to talk on deck when I not so brilliantly decided to take off my shoes...well after an all night race my feet smelled....well lets put it this way...they didn't smell like poseys...

As well, I raced with someone else after college whom the captain required leave his shoes at the dock because they reeked so badly that you could smell them whether the guy had them on his feet or not.

Thanks for the welcome once again...the weird thing is that my husband's dream was actually my dream in college...I have napkins with budgets written down, and a journal entry about going to a presentation at St. John's College in Annapolis to hear a couple talk about their cruising adventures to the Galapogos...then somehow those journals were closed and put on the shelf...and sailing faded away due to being landlocked...but now it is back...

Another welcome!

No better time to get back into sailing then now with the more advanced technology and safety features.

As for the smelly shoes, a good soaking in white vinegar will cure that.

I found one ... or did she find me? She just installed the new tansmission and heat exchanger as I do not fit there so well. I was fortunate that my father inlaw put the 3 kids and dog on a boat and did not come back for nearly ten years. She does not spell so well but can drive a boat and has common sense, A rare comodity,

My wife never asks these questions. It must one of the many reasons we have such an excellent relationship.

Well, that's almost too much information, but seeing as how we are sharing...

My boat partner's wife banned my running shoes from the boat when I kicked them off after a long day of sailing. I bought a pair of leather top-siders that do better but I didn't like sailing the race boats in them.

I picked up a pair of these during my last trip and I can say so far that I love them. They are nothing but rubber and net. Completely open weave. They clean up quick and instantly dry. Very cool...

PS - Glad the sailing journal is open again. Here's wishing you many adventures and joy filled chapters to come.

I am not normally a PC prude but...

If you don't subscribe to the saying, then why post it at all.

There is nothing remotely amusing about beating your wife or your dog.

Beat your walnut tree all you want.

I met my wife, (to be), the same day I first looked at our boat, (to be). That was almost 29 years ago, 18 years living aboard, 9 years of active cruising. We are still very happy together. No secrets but number one is Commitment, #2 is Consideration and on.

An old lady was being interviewed on her 75th wedding anniversary. The journalist asked "how could you stay with one man for all those years?'' The little old lady replied "Well, when we were married I decided to let him have no more than ten faults or I would leave him". The journalist nodded. The old lady continued. "But, you know what, I just never counted them"

There is a nice hidden message in there about all relationships really.

Cheers
