Yeah, I've acquired a bunch of guitar stuff that seriously needs to be culled, too.How true. I own quite a few things for no rational reason at all.
As my GF points out.
When I eventually get home, another cull is going to take place. I think it's something you need to do periodically to keep the 'stuff' from taking over. Keeping my IH TD9 Drott tracked loader is getting pretty difficult for even me to justify for example.
I'd be happy if a woman wanted to be a mechanic. Very happy. She could do the oil & filter changes on the Bukh diesel while I did something else. Fishing comes to mind.
And women can be great mechanics and/or technicians. A very nice and smart young lady mechanic worked on our current boat shortly after acquiring it, did a great job.
