Thanks for all the responses, I did not think I would find a travel companion on here. But it doesn't hurt to put the word out.

N43- it doesn't hurt to try- and besides it gave us something to talk about. And believe me- it gets much worse in the winter when the boating dies off. We'll debate ANYTHING for days !!

This fellow walks into a.....Nope, NOT going there.

So these two missionaries from a well known religion walked into a bar, helping each other carry the weight of the generator they were toting down to their boat. The bartender says to them.....

The Bummer will be releasing thousands of federal felons again this fall ,

perhaps there is a lady that would think 5 years on a small boat is a big step up?

There is a forum titled "Cruisers and Sailing Forum" that has a section entitles "crews" you can post your requirements and destinations there. I just scrolled through it and there are a few single women that are available for a voyage or two. These may or may not know what they would be getting into. Most will list their experience with previous voyages, type of vessels, endorsements, etc..
You might try there. Good luck....If you find one see if she has a friend.
