I wish I had one of you "older" folks jobs. have 150 K for a boat and refit. Sheesh man, give me twenty G's and I start the dream tomorrow!
Twenty G's was my budget.
I'm 53 and after 20 years of dreaming about it I bought my aloha 8.2 a year and a half ago. I have been learning to do all the repairs myself and I have had just as much fun learning to work on her as I have learning to sail her.
