Thanks for the supportive comments. Both of us are stretching the age boundaries, but we are convinced most of the problems begin in the head. If one recognizes the reality of reduced physical abilities and is cautious in that regard, nothings seems impossible. We also have a Bristol 29.9 in Daytona Beach, FL, that we recently spent a cold six months on and survived that just fine. Now, we plan to spend split the warm months between the two boats hopefully in a 7-5 yearly split. Should be fun.
