    Coz

    Wahoo OWman hasn't been here since - ohh - '98 was it?..

    Course 'Cactus Kate' showed up for all of 5 minutes....before the whiff of my testosterone got her all uppitty and she shot thru! :D ;)

    I dunno _ I reckon thats half the appeal of this place - juts like escaping to sea to get away from she who must be obeyed - you can skive off to Boat design.net and get away from 'her indoors' (previously referred to as "she who mistakenly thinks she wears the pants!").

    Soo..

    Do we really want the wimmin in the industry? or here for that matter!

    Now if it was the hot little number that paddles the blue canoe past my place every morning - then all bets are off - and I saw her first!:p

    Cheers!

    i smell some testosterone...

    I'm a woman and will be enrolling at the Landing School next term (for Boatbuilding, not design). Got to say- the marine industry smacks of a boys' club-wish there were some more women in the industry.

    Got the same problem in engineering... no matter how much we try to get the program to appeal to the females, they never make up more than 25% of the class. Not sure why... the ones we do have are all quite talented. Ah well...

    Marshmat - how are you buddy?:) - the few women I have come across in the industry are all really good engineers, think it is something to do with the fact that women have to be 1.5 times as good as the normal male in the first place to be put into senior positions, which is not an attemp at my opinion of what is right, just an observation of fact. I think it also has to do with their right to take mega time off when the kids come along which is hard from an employer's point of view regardless of what anyone says if they want to take up this option.
    Fair play to them I say and good luck.....

    erm, Bolton' I presume that the wife was looking over thy shoulder when you penned your last post, mate!:rolleyes:

    Good thing about women at sea, as I remember was the fact that when the 'old man' said "that female third mate needs f******" he meant it! :rolleyes: But I suppose that ain't wot you meant was it!
