Cool Concerned

So here is the dilema in brief;
You are 55 years old and fit enough.
You work as hard as a lizard drinking water with no time for anything else.
You have but one passion, maybe two, and that is to sail the Sth Western Pacific Islands.
You are prepared to indulge your passion by selling the power boats and getting into a 42 or 43' catamaran.
You cannot breakaway from your work commitments for another 5 years.
You have no interest in joining the other Grey Nomads and driving around Australia.
So here are the questions in brief;
Is 60 or 63 too old to do the sailing.
Will you still be motivated.
Can you handle the trip as one couple where the wife does'nt sail.
Too many other questions.

Regards from Schmacko the concerned !
