I spent an inordinately long and uncomfortable time sailing with a guy who would, when greeted by a woman on board a ship, remark: "I don't want to sound sexist, but ... I mean, I know plenty of women are captains, sure. But girls are usually deck fluff."When confronted with the usual stock of slackers, hipsters, and trustafarians who generally comprise the crews of TallShips™, he would opine: "A ship is no place for someone that age." And he confided in me that having a wife, girlfriend, or partner on board was probably never a good thing.
When offered the volunteer services of an old salt who had years of Navy and offshore sailing experience, he shook his head and confessed: "I don't think a fella that age should be on a ship like this."
He didn't like "that damned history crap" on TallShips™.Never could stand that guy.
