The charter skipper in the slip next to Moonstruck has a really nice S/O. When she heard that we were headed for a month in the Bahamas, she brought a book down for Lou to read while on the trip. The name of the book is Carolina Winds. Lou read it, and loved it. By the way she highly recommends it, Jennifer. It's about a family that moved from Charleston, SC to the Exumas in the early 1700s.

When we got back, Lou gave the book to Capt. Tris. I said, "tell Jocalyn that Lou was so engrossed in the book that she hardly spoke to me for a week".

Capt. Tris said, "do you want me to chew Jocalyn out for that"?

I said, "No. Thank her for it". WRONG!!!

I think Honeybadger and I may become roomies.

Linda and I clearly, succinctly, and at times comprehensively enjoy dissecting any aspects of processes and/or situations that may need decision-review before item actuations are taken aboard boat... or for that matter, during any process/situation we’re together in. She’s at my side and I at hers. We respect and trust one another 100%... on all levels! That said... when shtt hits the fan (i.e. emergency, immediate action becomes necessary in a marine situation) I as boat Captain take full responsibility for bringing the boat and all aboard clear of harm’s way. Consequences of my actions rest squarely on my shoulders alone... you could say, the buck stops in my hands for handling emergency marine circumstances... be they short or long in happenstance duration. So Far – So Good!

My Wife says to me: "when can we go out again?" and also "why do we have to go back again?" and so she is fine by me. She does chores with me and so she is the perfect boating wife.

I`ve a vague recall the honeybadger is an African animal said to have particular liking for part(2 parts actually) of male genitalia.
Can`t wait for posts from wives 1-3, plus current girlfiend (typo but decided to leave it).
It`s said the safest,commonly used words from husbands, are "yes dear". We`d be lost( not necessarily in the navigational sense) without our "better half" on board. BruceK

I have had three major relationships in my life.One was a marriage,if you wanna call it that.It was one sided,all me.If my current relationship of 10.5 years ends,I will sell everything,buy a boat,and move aboard while working when ever and where ever.Heck,I'm already ready to do it now.

LOL , Yea Moonstruck jump on the boat as the great Captain Ron said" if its going to happen it will happen out there" Thanks Pineapple girl its coming together now. Had the wiring inspected this week now i am finishing up the Plumbing and installing the lights in the engine room.another coat of paint in the engine room and i will install all the interior stuff. All electronics are rough wired so tick tock, Yea i guess sometimes after 20+ years as a Explosive Ordnance Disposal Tech in the USMC i expect people to read through the lines and know what i am talking about with minimal explanition. Not so in the real world ! Taking the Center console out tomorow that always lets me burn off some steam some 70 MPH sprints and i feel better about life I think everyone should have 3 ex wives puts things into prespective ! Defusing and IED was alot easier that being married that keeps blowing up in my face

LOL @ SOF Yea the other day my good friends wife told me that the answer to my girlfriend when she pressed me for a time i was returning from boat was " i am a grown damn man when i am ready to come home" was not the proper answer ! So i changed it to " Yes dear i will be home between this afternoon and next week" i sure hope that was better ??
