Back in the search again for a nice woman to do a circumnavigation with. I know this sounds pathetic, but it is hard to find someone who can take off for five years, or so. We need a dating app on this website.

While I wish you luck in your search, I wouldn't look on Match.com for a boat either.

A small boat is a tiny place to be locked up with a complete strainger, for a week , never mind half a decade.

Learn to single hand , and in popular swap spots like Panama you may find a companion from another boat that has had it with her last "Bligh".

Beware , marine law may have you purchasing a ticket to her "home country" when she decides to wander off.

You could try the time honored technique I remember from "Master and Commander" - get them passed out drunk on the boat, and when they wake up they are already at sea. Only problem I can forsee is if you want to catch some sleep at some point...

I never had a woman who pooped on the beach and I had to scoop it up.
I never had a dog that could make me a sammich.
My wife finds me amusing when I'm drunk, too.

No, but they'll both eagerly eat your entire sandwich when all they asked for was a "little bite."

Dogs on board

Lock your wife and your dog in the trunk of your car and after a half hour see which one is glad to see you!

I love dogs and women. The one thing about having both around at the same time is she doesnt have to leave the room to fart.

As someone(a politician I think) once said "He/She has all the qualities of a dog, except loyalty". An unfavorable assessment, I fear.

Many fascinating stories on how nautical travel companions can be health limiting. My ex was friends with Natalie Wood's sister, still a mystery there.

One thing for sure, if N43 were N86 the field would widen.

When I think of sailing with strangers (or recently-mets), I always think of the movie Dead Calm.
