I do! Does that mean he's too high maintenance? What with all the decorative hair trimming and all.

I suppose it depends on how much he pays his hairdresser and stylist barber.

Hey Margo - what's the female viewpoint on "high maintenance women"? Can a traditional HMW be a cruiser in your not so humble opinion?

I think it would require that her Captain has a RBB (really big boat). Lots of batteries for the hair dryer, a big watermaker for all the hot showers and shampooing, and lots of closet space for all the clothes and shoes (boat shoes included). High maintenance means she requires a lot of maintenance, and that means all the tools to do it. And still, I think she wouldn't take part in the sailing or boat chores because that means breaking a nail and ruining that expensive manicure, and wind in her hair wastes all that washing conditioning, curling, shining, spraying, ....

So, if you want a mate as eye candy, sunning on the deck and shopping in town, while you do all the boat work, by all means take a HMW with you.

IMHO, that is.

Not too different a viewpoint from your side of the fence.....

I'll skip the HMW and stick with Mrs Minty who is definitely a low maintenance woman, great fun, smart and *I* find her gorgeous.
