    A discussion among all the women on this site will be no discussion. Currently there seem to be about four women and two of them have no interest in a women's discussion. At different times Belle and Judy have brought the subject of more female participation and members up. Now, I've found this true on other powerboat forums but found far more female participation on sailing forums.

    I will certainly open this up to anyone. These are just my interests and I've heard from others on this site that these things would not be welcomed by some. Gosh I can't get it right on this site. But I'm not going to stop.

    In my opinion - there are just no wrong questions or posts that can't be tolerated. Someone will find the passion in it and desire to be part of the discussion. If not - then what is it hurting?

    What's happened in the past doesn't have to be part of the future.

    Do you guys have any good recipes?

    I don't mind getting dirty - I'm learning all about our engine room. I've learned so much already.

    Just like most of you said I can't learn this industry - I have been successful so far. I love it. I love my boat - and I love being a woman. Sorry the topic was wrong.

    Belle and Judy - what things can I learn as a female captain. Teach me.

    Please allow your wives to join in - yes- they will find some interest in joining in with other women who live this lifestyle.

    OP = Original Poster. That refers to the person that started the thread.
