Dating Website for Sea Captains


(Video Link)


Are you a sea captain in need of close companionship? Are you a landlubber who craves the crustiness of a grizzled old sailor? Well, there's a website now devoted to your needs.

The search form is interesting. It distinguishes between three genders: male, female, and sea captain.

I don't recall if it is the same site, but I saw a similar site about ten years ago that seemed to have grown out of a magazine-based dating club.

I've been around "live-aboards" at yacht clubs on boats ranging from 30 to 90 feet long, and I can tell you with complete certainty that living aboard a private yacht is a lifestyle suitable for very few people. Trying to find someone willing and suitable for a long term live-aboard relationship is very difficult. I almost think you'd have an easier time finding an attractive vegan transgendered Asian woman between the ages of 27 and 32.

Lots of people see the romance of the boat and think they want that, so I've never seen a live-aboard who was lonely for long except by choice. But few outsiders realize how difficult it is to sustain.

It gets easier if the boat is about 60 feet or more, but even then there are real challenges, and the reality is that most who live aboard are in smaller vessels than that anyway.
