Re: How old is too old
As I've said before, you need to think of boats more like houses than cars. In Europe there are thousands of houses still in use that are hundreds of years old.
Boats are much the same - they can go on indefinitely if they are maintained.
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.
