I'm a bit over 4 years away from retirement. I did sail a bit when a teenager and messed about a bit in my 20's with some canoe sailing
that didn't work out to well lol. Long story short.
We bought a 22 foot project boat 2 years ago. 1) I wanted to get a grip on how much it would cost to restore a boat. 2) Now that the work is done ( at double the estimated costs ) we will use it to hone our sailing skills and navagation etc. Hopefully when the time arrives and we are able to find a 30 footer we'll be ready for our adventure in the caribbean until the batteries expire. Failing that then we'll take the current boat down and live a beach bums
