Fiona will go out in any weather, she has had blood coming out of blisters on her palm before now, we've been involve in helicopter rescues around Portland, diving, racing and loads more inbetween, this is the important bit to this post, she used to be the other woman when my wife wanted to lead her own life with hardly anything in common.
I traded up over 25 years ago with no regrets, no sense being unhappy because someone else isn't happy.
This may seem harsh to some of you but I bet some others will know what I'm talking about

You're mistaking philosophy for experience

Thanks fellars and ladies ;-)

I wasn't sure if I was the only one that actually enjoys his time with his wife (don't laugh) anyway we are going to have a blast from scarborough to Filey on Saturday if the weather stays true to its word.

Thanks again for all your input Steve and Sue.

Two stroke motor is handy when taking the mrs out as it can quickly and effectively drown out the moaning about lack of fish / leaking drysuit / bored / run out of food etc that she constantly seems to whine about when floating around on the rib! If you ever see my mrs singlehanded helming the rib without close supervision get as far away as possible and hide. Despite having a RYA lvl 2 she is the most dangerous person I've ever known to drive anything on water!

More dangerous than mine? The fact is women aren't natural explorers. My wife doesn't even like going to Mont St. Michel anymore; she's only been there four times by sea.

I'm hoping assuming that there's a fair amount of your tongue stuck in your cheek there fella

Classic. At least your missus knows which direction is right, even if she doesn't put quite enough helm input as you'd like, initially.

Mine adopts the ol' 50/50 approach and sometimes gets it right (or left)!

But yes, to echo a lot of the above, Good weather wive loves it. Bad weather =

Which is why more often than not I am running solo these days. (I then watch the kids another day while she goes & does her stuff)
