Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??
New boat's are for the well off, period. All the used boats out there are for the young'ns and less off. $2500, a trip to the used boat equipment store and some elbow grease is all you need to get a good little 30 foot sloop.
That's true but you are also locked in to moorage, insurance, haulouts etc. etc.
Without secure, well paid employment, it's a commitment few are willing to make.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
