Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

The photos alone demonstrate that those two smiling women are oppressed, and were compelled to put makeup on and take those selfies by the patriarchy forcing traditional gender roles on them.

Or more likely the profs are running out of new material for their next feminist theory class.

Suggesting that women embrace roles because they're imposed by men as opposed to acting on their own free volition is itself patronizing and therefore politically incorrect. You should really be more careful or someone might mistake you for a member of the oppressor patriarchy.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I freely admit I am only partially woke, and that ignorance of the subconcious prejudices we all hold from our social programming is a more powerful cause of all such oppression, far more than intentional efforts by bad actors.

Women are sexist, minorities are racist, queers can be homophobic, poor people classist, disabled often ableist, elderly ageist etc, we all have work to do toward greater social justice.

At least I'm trying to be mindful, on a day to day, minute to minute basis.

Must be hard work living at such heights. Maybe you can update some of the software, but you'll never get to the level you seem to aspire to unless you also acknowledge how humans are hard-wired.

Women are sexist, minorities are racist, queers can be homophobic, poor people classist, disabled often ableist, elderly ageist etc, we all have work to do toward greater social justice.

But mostly people are just people. You can live life focused on everyone's differences, or just look for what we all have in common and accept human limitations. Social justice is another made-up political term that nobody can define. Justice for the greater good depends first on taking responsibility for one's self & dependents, and setting a good example.

At least I'm trying to be mindful, on a day to day, minute to minute basis.
As I said, it sounds like a lotta work. Be tolerant, be respectful, try & avoid making assumptions, and the rest will follow. I know, I know, easier said than done (at least for me).

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

Well, the whole idea of a boat is to get away from females. Boats are kind of like no-go zones for women. It reminds them of "camping". When women think about boats, they think no showers, strange toilets and Natalie Wood. If you drop your earring in a house, maybe you can find it, but in a boat it's gone forever. Stuff like that terrifies them.

So, if you want to hang out with women, you either need to get a boat that is so big that it is indistinguishable from a house or get a house.

Mono's are for men and Catamarans are for women..

Thanks for that! I laughed so hard I spit my coffee halfway across the galley and now I'll have to hire someone to come in to clean it up...

But but, I use the boat to get away from men.......

You know every marina I visit in the SF bay area has a few single women living aboard. Some even anchor out, or so I hear.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

I was hoping to find some interesting information in this as Iím itching to purchase a yacht, but didnít find anything in this thread of value to a single live aboard sailor. How do all these philosophical arguments actually help a single sailor? Things like ďthe perfect portĒ where someone saw a sailing school and there were women interested in learning, or a yacht club with an amazing marina restaurant, a island in the Philippines where people travel from island to island, offshore dates, success in big city marinas...though I could of missed that discussion through 100 pages

Boosted... the title should have given the clue..
Should have been.. 'How come Popeye always lands Olive and Desperate Dan eats cowheel pie alone.. again.'
The myth continues..

Your future boat is just a home. However you act at home is how you will live on a boat. No magic just because you're floating. The OP was/is hoping changing his home would help his love life. Where he lives is not the problem nor the solution.

I love living alone, dirt or water. I have a lot of friends, but prefer my own company for the majority of my time. Lonely people, hoping that buying a boat and moving somewhere with lots of the opposite sex around means happiness, will be disappointed.

There are lots of threads on single handed sailing, but that's a whole 'nuther ball of wax.

Nice to see there are still some single people involved in this thread.

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

That was great!

Maybe a retired seamen would know a good port for that stuff, at least a good story or two ...I know it can get crazy on cruise ships, but think most people’s interests in that have nothing to do with the water or sailing. It’d be worth a shot though!
