Does she have a hobby? If not, GET HER ONE. Mine is a horse nut, I have work like hell to make enough to pay for both, but when I want to enjoy my side, she cooperates.

Keep reminding her you could be chasing split tails at the local bar, but instead you chase the wind on the water...

Granted, trying to get her involved is best, but at the end of the day, you have to have your sanity, and for me, that means a boat....

Without my sanity she would not want to be around anyway...

My ex loves going out for a day on the water. She loves blasting around the lake WOT.
But I told her when I bought it that boat ownership is a lot of work. There's always something that needs tending to. I asked her to promise me that she would help maintain it. She did, and didn't. She made the promise and I take care of everything. I get no help in cleaning it or packing it away. She'll help load it and hook it to the truck, launch and retrieve, but beyond that, nothing.
She did try to complain about how much time I spend working on it. I said to her....You enjoy going out on it, right?
You like the fact that it's always clean, right?
You like the fact that it aways runs with no trouble, right?
Well if it dies out there we can't pull over to the curb and call AAA! It takes work to keep it running like this.
She never bothered me about it again.

For those looking to get their wives more interested in boating......many have found enrolling their wives into local Power Squadron courses and club managment duties is the charm. Lots of other wives to brainwash them into liking the hobby. : )

Women typically like to take boating courses from someone other than their husbands, then get better exam grades to boast about. Also, once they learn something about boating themselves, they are 200% more comfortable with it.

I am fortunate my wife prefers to be sleeping on the boat rather than at the house. She used to travel for her job alot during the week, and told me "she would meet me on the boat" for the weekends. I don't think she saw the inside of our house for a couple of months!

Now she is the treasurer of a local yacht club and enjoys lording her power over me. : )

I guess its Murphy's laws of boating...Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. And however long you think it will take, it will always take longer. Anyone else forced into these types of "discussions"?? I hope I'm not the only one.
Did she have a point ?.................................

Second's a good spot if she's the first with breasts and no appetite for 93 Octane.
