The boat was built to be a cruising boat that no longer meets the demands of cruisers. You could spend lots of money to make it an inadequate cruising boat. But you weren't crazy enough to do that. Why should you be sad about that? Not everything old should be restored. Not everything old belongs in the museum. Some old stuff (BUT NOT ME) just needs to be recycled or discarded.
Lots of people drive & love '55 Chevy's too.

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.
