I'll chime in here for my son (34), who with his wife bought a Bayfield 36 two years ago in NC and fixed it up. They took it down the ICW and then to the Bahamas for a couple of months then back to Florida and then to Panama where they realized they were going to be parents. Change of plans (no Pacific crossing right away), back to NC where the boat is on the hard now while they are in Australia helping a friend they met while cruising (who just recently sailed the boat to Oz) build his house. They met and cruised with a lot of young people that are out there living the dream. Good to see how many here on SN are young and getting into sailing. Myself, I'm 59 and I think I'm just starting to mature:-))
