Peace and quiet; that’s why at the end of the day, regardless of whether the potential crew are male or female, I am happy to go alone!

Then a lot of the time the old “women and beer” cliché is exactly the attitude I am trying to escape and exactly the reason I am happy to leave others behind. Don’t get me wrong, I am still more of a Captain Bligh than some sort of new age softy, it is just I still have not met that special woman who enjoys my love of the ocean.

In the meantime, the crap that comes out of peoples mouths when they are drunk is something I actively avoid. I don’t think I will ever meet that special person listening or adhering to this garbage?

Two words: Alternate energy.

I'd like some solar and wind power. No gas generators. Oh, and all that other stuff Anjou said in the other thread.

Someone who is not lying when she says she'd rather be cruising than playing house.

Yes. Except when you're heeled over listening to things slide asround and hoping it's not too out of hand down there! But maybe that's a novice thing.

LOL...I must have missed the point of the conversation...Sorry

But Hey... yes all the Guys wife's were very nice to talk with..I think it really impressed my wife that a bunch of strangers from an Internet forum were collectively so nice.

That either says allot about y'all ...or my selective invite ability one of the two..
