Oh man some of you guys have to get a sense of humor.....


My wife, Kay, let know early on that she was the Admiral and I was the boat boy! Promoted to Captain at her and only her command................


So Hawgwash you didn't answer the question. Are you married? This maybe the issue with your having with the term of couple cruising.

I am from the south so this is perfectly normal and acceptable. Gees folks live a little, have some fun and stop being so PC!

"Now, I know people are comfy using the Admiral term in their family and, if so, I respect that. Just don't use it for others unless you know that's what they like to be called. We all have our faves and our peeves."

"Wifey B: My girlfriends and I have all sorts of nicknames for each other and for my hubby, but we don't expect someone outside our group to start using them. Nicknames between couples or friends are fine, but not the way to refer to strangers. Most of our nicknames couldn't be posted here..."

Ditto and agree 100%!

Now, an even bigger name question for me is boat names.
Down at the marina there are 2 boats, stern to stern, across from each other called Harmony and 2 others, both Journey. Another one called It's A Wonderful Life. How would you like to do the phonetics on this one in an emergency; Spirit Of Two Thousand And Ten? Seriously.

Funny how most commercial boats seem to find original names.

How about calling "her" the warden. Ha ha, this is so ridiculous it might go on longer than the toilet paper thread.

The only thing I like better than the topic of this thread is reading the responses of some folks. Seriously, makes me wonder how they deal with the agony of the log up their arse bouncing back and forth in waves.

Ha ha is right and that is exactly what I was thinking when I posted it. How it became about "marriage," angry PMs about Quebec and Igloos, I'll never know.

My failure, not being a user of My Face, Space Book, Lumped In and Instantgramma is I don't use lol, rofl, jk, yellow faces ect to denote intended humour.

BTW I think Admiral I silly too but wfyb.
TTYL.

Truly one of the best responses and should be nominated for the hall of fame.

Wifey B: I'd never really call you dude. We didn't fancy our boat names up. Figured we'd have to repeat them ten bazillion times so short and simple, yet unique to us.

Sometimes too there are name fads. Donna Rice comes along and Monkey Business becomes the most popular name it seems. Some really cute names like "Seas the Day" that are always near the top names. Aguaholic, Island Time, Second Wind (for sailboats). Then we've never had vanity license plates either.

I thought one of the first responses would be the Admiral comes from______(fill in the blank). Bug Tussle, OK, maybe.

Hi there Sailor...
You got a broadside view of your "profile" boat and what is it?
