You get the idea. *

Many thanks.

*While not books, these are some pretty good boating movies that might encourage your wife to ask you to cast off and never return:

Dead Calm

Captain Ron

Perfect Storm

Cape Fear

All good family viewing!!***************** KJ

RE: Seductive Cruising Books

maybe check out the cruising america's waterways DVDs (available from NetFlix).* they make boating look easy and focus on the things to do at the destinations.**

Those movies might make my wife want to cast off, but they make me want to curl up in my bed on land.

RE: Seductive Cruising Books

I want to thank all of you who have been so kind in offering your suggestions to encourage my wife in her enjoyment of boats and cruising. I again want to say what a warm and helpful bunch of folk inhabit this forum! It is very encouraging to see that this is not a new topic and most of you have companions who share in the love of the sea.

It will be fun to watch Anne melt into the arms of the berth and find bliss in the gentle cradle that rocks and rolls with the tides...

I think you all again and feel I have enough suggestions to do the trick. If not, I'll post again.

George

The PERFECT STORM is not one to have your wife see. It is about a horrible storm and my wife, a seasoned boater was scared by that movie.*

Charles,

If you think she was scared by The Perfect Storm, wait till she sees "Captain Ron".
