Re: What is the age of your boat?

Our culture/economy/marketing makes people think they need to buy new and new is better. Look at a new production boat (6 figures) and totally lacking the style and grace found in an older boat. Then look at what you can get in an older boat (for <20% of the cost) there is a good chance you will end up with a better boat, especially when you figure in everything you can do with the money you save.
