Re: Life Span of a Boat
With the advent of the FG boat.. a lot of wooden boats were discarded and junked. Back in the money days of the 80s and 90s.. a lot of old boats were traded in on new ones. Rather than reselling the older boats.. they were stripped and crushed.
basically attrition through changing tastes. Look at older homes.. not too many survive compared to the strange things that archetecture is called now. Same with cars. People want better, faster, newer, and now.. and most people do not care about "old" things. To them, a 30 year old boat is just "old"
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
