I guess if I have to have an N86 to get a woman, then I am going to be single for a long time.

You're definitely gonna have to add a lot more information to your profile..or at least a photo of the boat!

I actually think you're going about it backwards. Not many women these days would even THINK of agreeing to head out to sea with a man they barely know...so first put some effort into meeting women who are good company and also consider you to be. Put some time and effort into turning that into a real relationship and THEN try to talk her into living on a boat for a while. But before she'll agree to do that, she's gotta want to live with YOU, even platonically, for a while!

My friend Bob Bitchin says he "kidnapped" his bartender. Asked her if she wanted to sail to the island. She thought he meant Catalina. First stop was Hawaii...

He's kidding, of course. The bartender was Jody. They've been married 19 years now.

I dunno why this thread brought this to mind:

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, the sometimes take apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easier to get. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along-- the one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes and it's up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable bring to the dinner table!

Wifey B: 100% great advice. You don't just walk around in a bar hoping to find someone drunk enough to agree to head on the trip and hope they don't sober up before you leave the dock. Find someone who just likes spending a day on the boat with you and work from there. Share your dream of long term cruising and see how women respond but don't push for someone to agree who you don't know and they don't know you. I'm sure you can pick up lots of cruising companions on craigslist and backpage. They'll come at a high price though and/or with lots of baggage.

Read this out loud to my family while watching Seahawks today. 3yo grandson says "why not get a big ladder to get the apples at the top?"

Or just show her much you are worth - much quicker.

That's the funniest unintended line I've read in a long time.
....it was unintended, right?

Wifey B: No, hate to disappoint but it was intended.

It reminds me of the line "I wouldn't want to belong to any country club that would let me in." Well, you really don't want to spend 24/7 on a boat with some woman who would join you no questions asked. I'd probably ask her what LEO she's running from.

I'd try to find someone who wanted to just do some local boating with you. Then, if things go good, explore the idea of a long trip and long term relationship.

Something else is some dude says "Five years cruising together, strictly platonic" and my response is "Yeah, Right."

Well, they are out there, I'm not endorsing! This from a sailing forum:
"Lady with sailing experience would like to cruise the Bahamas or Eastern Caribbean this winter. I have logged about 6,000 nautical miles, have some offshore experience, and have experience handling a 58' power yacht. I'm very active, fit, and agile and have an easygoing, happy disposition. Not prone to seasickness. Previously was a liveaboard. Well traveled outdoor adventurer. Available to cruise indefinitely."

Oh, Wifey B, you need to lower your mind way down into the gutter where mine is to see the double entendre of the second sentence.
A blooper if ever I saw one.

Why not change crew in each port you travel to? Most sailboat crew members are sick and tired after an ocean crossing looking for greener pastures and a nicer boat. A Nordy would seem like heaven to most. Should be able to be quite choosy in the Med or Caribbean. As Steve and others have pointed out go for the sailing crowd! E-mail Bob Bitchin'. I'm sure he can give you solid suggestions on how to crew your boat.
