    Default New sailor onboard :)

    I am a sailor and have been sailing the last 20 years on off. I like diy stuff and have currently a sailboat 31 foot, Gibsea 92. I live in Denmark and sail when the time fits in. Mostly singlehand as my wife is not so happy about sailing.

    Hi finn and welcome,

    I spend a lot of time on an MGB (old car) forum and much of the talk is about the conflict between wives and hobbies. At the risk of hijacking your thread, it would be interesting to have a discussion on how to:

    Get your wife/partner interested in sailing and boating.

    Change your hobby so that you can spend more time with wife and family.

    Learn to love gardening and putting up curtains.

    Hi Lotus. Thankyou for your welcome.

    I think it is ok to have different kind of interest. And to get my wife on board it just takes time and select the tours with care, concidering the weather.
