I understand that sailing and boating in general is a male-dominated sport and I will always face sexism as a female captain and boat owner. That being said it is a bit out of control here in Florida.
Everything is either a “two-man job" or a "one-man job”.
When I offer my assistance for the “two-man jobs” such as removing the boom, lifting various objects and helping move the A/C, I am shut down.
Steve on the other hand is allowed to assist with all of these tasks and is expected to help out.
I pointed it out to Steve after a few occasions and he poo-pooed me, and then he started noticing it and realized how blatant it is.
I know this is just something that I will have to deal with but it is really annoying because I am perfectly capable and able to do all of these things.
Suggestions on handling with this without pissing off/ offending the guy who is doing the work on our boat who we need to finish the rigging etc?
