Wow! 26 years old, 47 foot boat!

Your "Boating Intensity (Insanity?) Factor" BIF = 47/26 = 1.81. I think that may be a record.

Haha! I grew up in a boatyard, I'm part owner to a 40ft commercial shrimp boat and a 36ft tri cabin trawler that I have spent last 5 years completely redoing. So this beauty is mine and I'm going on vacation as soon as it's done.... In the BVIs haha!

But thanks, I like that ratio Haha, funny!

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

just turned 20, on my third boat, a 82' San Juan 28. started at age 16 with a very free 1963 O'day daysailer. sold that, bought a better condition daysailer, sold that, bought a 1976 Newport 17 with that money, fixed that, sailed that, sold that. just picked up the San Juan. It will be for sale in the fall of 2014. great boat.

Barely still 35, own a Montego 19 (sailing) and a Hunter 23' basket case on Strom Thurmond Lake in GA. Will be taking ASA 103-104 this summer, probably at Southcoast Sailing to get some blue water time.

Hey! This is age discrimination!

OK, when I was that age I had an O'day 19, then a Spirit 23, and then a brand spankin' new Catalina 25.
