"Well, there are likely more CFers with dead batteries than who are single liveaboard females..."

Very true, but it does say something that more are interested in that than
single female living aboard.

I doubt it's a record though. No one Is bickering! [/QUOTE]

Hey! Maybe if single female liveaboards bickered about their dead batteries??

That might do the trick

Re: Single, Female, and living aboard?

I'm a single female living aboard who recently had to deal with 4 discharged AGMs after a charger failure. They're not mutually exclusive. Is there a point you guys are trying to make about bickering and this post?

this guy ain't doin' no bickering, nosiree! And it's a bummer when your charger quits on you no matter who you are.

Re: Single, Female, and living aboard?

I am confused.:confused Are we saying the boat's batteries are not working, or the guys batteries not working. I believe it takes two different types of chargers.

As to the size 12 boots. Will it work for us old guys also. At my age, my greatest fear is ten or twelve sweet young things getting on the boat and not one of them knowing how to cook!

My greatest fear is being treated as a cook!

If "man created fire" man can learn to roast his own road kill!

Batteries, however, are far too personal to discuss.

That's the funny thing about growing old, even with decades of knowledge, we still think the impossible, is probable

I think Jim was referring to his charger. My batteries are fully amped up now. I have no tolerance for dead weight and stuff that doesn't work

First, let me say that it is not that I can not cook for myself and have done so most of my life. I do not consider cooking a put down. We all pitch in on the boat and at the ranch. I will not ask anyone to do anything I won't do. It is having to cook for all 10-12 sweet young things that concerns me. I was being facetious and remembering that catamaran with 13 young girls in bikinis posted some time back. Secondly a sweet young thing to me is any lady under 75 years old!
The reason behind my post was to lighten and deflect the tone of the conversation. In that sense, It kind of worked !

Ah Fuentes, I think you took my post too seriously! Road kill is not usually considered "serious eats"!

It is crucial to distinguish between "charger" and "chargee". when the chargee is dead, no amount of charging will do any good!
