It's frankly insulting and misogynistic to refer to someone's wife as an admiral instead of an equal partner in which both parties should be responsible for their choices (boat or otherwise).
They are called Admirals, because we do admire them, and even we use to be the captains on board, they usually have the last word. [emoji12].

Wo don't blame them for problems, we try to make them comfortable on board.

I know PLENTY of wives and girlfriends that are far better captains than their mates.

It's a derogatory term similar to "old ball and chain".

For normal people, it usually is.

Derogatory or a term of endearment?

Perhaps it's an age or geographical thing. I don't know. My grandfather had some pretty cringe worthy "terms of endearment" for his wife.

In the Southern US men use terms that they would be chastised for outside of those areas. I just know that the sailors I know would rather not be called the Admiral. Well, not unless they were an Admiral.

That is exactly my thinking.
My wife is the Admiral, even when at home. She has the last word on almost all decisions and can overrule any of my stupid ideas - in one way or another.
Even when deciding on the next boat.

This Admiral thing is certainly _not_ insulting in any way, at least not in our family.

I guess to some it's fine and to others it isn't.

I'll be sure to inform my 30-something wife that the term she proudly uses to describe herself is NOT the highest position of decision-making that she thought it was. It's actually derogatory. (I love to make her laugh)

Re: Broken Lagoon

Back to the topic.

Lagoon prepares the first fixes of the 450 in Anapolis (at AYS), according to a FB post. They will produce a repair kit in the factory, ship it and reinforce both sides (only one was defective in the survey). Repair will be done afloat in the water at AYS.

So as I assumed, they needed time and preparations to step in professionally and do what is necessary. This is one of the first boats they repair, so there will be a learning curve I guess.


[emoji6] Interesting, the 2 things we like to talk about most, admirals and boats, both in one thread [emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787]

In the water? Note the effort that Parlay and the other Panama boat went thru to assure hulls were straight upright and deck curve removed before doing bulkhead repairs that permanently set alignment.

Would at least require a diver to measure the distance between keel centerlines to assure back to design.
