There was an "Old Fart" here at the Marina where we live - who brought his boat here for service. He used to take his boat (old wooden Trumpy) every year to Florida - by himself. He was 80 years old last time I saw him - and carrying his groceries up a ladder to his boat when he was 'on the hard'. His wife wouldn't travel with him - but still lived aboard with him. Amazing couple. Haven't seen them in a few years - maybe time finally caught up with them.

Remember, though, Old Farts don't smell as bad as fresh ones.
