Easier to get into them when they are standing up for you. And besides, less "human" smells on them when fishing.

Re: Sailing mates

Hi Minny,
I am touched by the sincerity and open heart you display.
I googled "a real sailmate" I found you
Me exatly the same sailing all my life but actually never been blessed with a similar minded,life loving mate.
I am retired recently from running a business and raising my Son.
Three summers now I ebeen sailng BC Coast to Alaska, just like the guys you have noticed on the docks, there are many Ladies here but just week end saling or marina hopping I would love to sail south to pacific or towards the canal if I would be fortunate have the right mate.
I will start living on my boat fom Jan ist in inn iner harbour Victoria BC Canada
Par

I live aboard my boat and enjoy taking it out day sailing. The boat is definitely capable of blue water cruising as I continue to dream about the day (still need to work a few more years, hone skills, etc). And that's my dillemma: I'm considering giving the whole thing up because sor far, this lifestyle has been very lonely.

I bought my boat about three years ago. Before that I learned how to sail. I belong to a club and have no shortage of friends who I routinely meet. But I can't seem to find anyone - a man - who is interested in committing to a relationship that includes boat ownership and cruising.

Of the men on my dock: some would call them old salts others would call them drunken has-beens. I'm not passing judgement either way. Just looking for advice as to where or how to find a sailing soulmate?

My hat's off to singlehanders - don't know how you do it.

Minny

Re: Sailing mates

Good luck yavrum, not sure if you noticed the last post here was 4.5 years ago but maybe she is still waiting!

Sounds like this reply comes from one of those Minny's trying to avoid.

Re: Sailing Mates

Well Minitee it could be worse. You are single and are looking for someone to sail with. I am married and my wife does not like the boat period...So I am also looking for someone to sail with. It is easer when you are single than when you are married. When I advertise on the crew list I get a lot of guys to reply but dang it I want a female mate... That complicates things. I just happen to like women. I used to belong to the Ballena Bay Yacht club and they had a wonderful program where they introduced men and women to their boats on a sail training program. That brought in new sailors and for us old men (I was single at the time) a new supply of women to help us with our boats. Now I am in Everett, WA and the weather is not condusive to new sailors. Especially the kind I would like on my boat. So if you are in a club start a share the sail program if not in a club maybe you could start one. As for me, are their any females out there looking for a platomic relationship with an older guy on a well found 32' cruiser?

Hmmm cruising with young women are ya? Maybe this is why your wife hates the boat! Hehe
I know I wouldn't let my husband go sailing off into the sunset with other women...I might let him be my first mate though.

Re: Sailing Mates

I spend a lot of time in BC. False Creek and Granville Is. are my first stops to provision and hang out. The more I get up into the Islands there the more I love them. Long or short crusiers are always welcome. Those interested in the history of the Islands are especially welcome. Will probably be passing through in early May if any one is interested. 1Sunseeker@Frontier.com
