Oh hell, why not? I'd rather have a 50+ enthusiastic greenhorn aboard than a sullen teenager who would rather be anywhere else.

Buy a boat- the rest will take care of itself.

I recommend reading Gillian OuterBridge's book "Going About"- the story of a woman of a certain age who decides to revise her life's second act, by going cruising on a small boat with a small dog.

If you feel like a road trip, come on up and join us on the Dock for a weekend or more- we'll get you out on a variety of boats and get you hooked.
