I'm having a hard time getting my mind around what clothes I would have on the boat that would even need to be ironed.

But I can see the equalizing factor of a pissed off women with a hot iron in her hand in stopping an argument!

A man needs a woman who can cook good
A man needs a woman who is good in bed
A man needs a woman who makes good money
And its very important, that these three women never meet

I'm new at sailing, so I want my boat to be strong and stable. Forgiving of my early errors, a responsive helm, even at low speeds, clean lines, easy access to critical systems for maintenance. At least one comfortable bunk. Easy for single handing.

I also want it to be energy efficient- low amperage lighting, fuel efficient engine, with some kind of energy production (towed generator, wind turbine or solar panel).

I'm keeping my contribution pointed to the boats and not the women.

How many freakin' solar panels do you have on your boat anyway?

Besides if it will run an iron, she'll want a hair dryer...

All of my shirts are no iron, and who irons a pair of shorts?

It's dangerous to gneralize about either sex, but all other things being equal, IMHO women favor comfort while men prefer sailing ability and ease of maintenance. Many women have a need to "nest" that a majority of men do not possess.

With respect to a female sailing companion, I want a girl who baits her own hook. Physical beauty per se becomes less important as one ages.

Some men are confused.
On one hand they are pleased a woman can get in the tight spaces they cant. Pleased she has the patience to read the instructions after hes given up and stormed off in a strop, pleased that shes got the balls to do things for herself and can be independant.

On the other hand, a man doesnt like to be seen letting a woman do any work. He wants to do the mucky jobs and lift the heavy things because its not a womans job. He wants to be the one who provides. He wants to be in charge.

In short, a man wants to be all things and yet share that role when other circumstances demand. It takes a good relationship to understand that dynamic without the need for constant discussion.

Two people are either suited to that or they arnt, and if they are, then a man and a woman both get what they want.

I have "lifted the heavy things" on occasion so my wife would have enough strength to do the "mucky jobs" but never just because I wanted to.
