Just read your brilliant response to the guy's post who is trying to convince his wife to live aboard. As a single woman looking for my skipper I concurred with your list of essentials 100%. I was beginning to think that all men who love sailing also loathe bathing. I am so weary of meeting men who have nice yachts and want me to sail away with them but only if I agree to never shower except off the back of the boat! I don't get it and I don't get why men who buy yachts are so cheap and fearful! Thanks for listening to my rant and thanks for being normal. Congrats to your lucky wife!
Can you tell me what type/brand of GSM alarm you bought? I am always interested in what cruiser's are doing for security.
I have a website listed in my profile about yacht security matters.
