There’s an old saying “If it’s high maintenance and it’s on your boat – let’s hope it’s in a bikini”. Now ladies don’t send me your hate mail please! First of all I didn’t write this ... some other sexist insensitive Neanderthal male did. Secondly, I do respect the Admiral on our boat and I know my place when it comes to keeping peace in the family when I am outnumbered by three women with one of my daughters being far more opinionated than myself. Having said that, I have been know to be politically incorrect and I like it when women on our boat wear bikinis. When it comes to the female persuasion ... lovely wife, old friends, new friends, casual visitors, tall, short, round, skinny - they all look better in a bikini in my opinion. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
There is nothing better than being at anchor on a sunny 80 plus degree day and having the ladies hang around in bikinis. I can’t put my finger on it, but it gives me an inner feeling of well being and it adds a relaxed more informal ambience to the cruising. All the formality and stuffiness is gone. It makes me feel that all is right with the world. I think as you get older perhaps it is a way to feel younger and the closest thing I will ever get to the Hollywood jet set, hanging about Cannes, on some mega stars yacht during the film festival. Hey ... I can imagine can’t I? I don’t see this as disrespectful of women, I see it very appreciative of the fairer sex. So if you come on our boat chill out, have fun, life’s short and if you’re female don’t forget to bring your bikini if you feel comfortable wearing one. Yah I know I’ve gone too far again, but I’m at the age where I can afford to be politically incorrect and I don’t have to answer to anyone else ... except the Admiral.
