You're never too old for sailing...

Captain Jack, a permanent fixture and wonderful character here in Marathon, Florida's City Marina, just turned 91 this past week. Jack is still hitting on the ladies, still rides his bike a couple miles a day, and is constantly walking the docks handing flowers to the pretty ladies and giving them complements.





Who knows, maybe I'll follow in his footsteps,

Gary

Good for him. I wonder what his score rate is.

I were in my 90's. I would rather go for the much young babes. Of course, I always carry my hall pass.

Re: You're never too old for sailing...

Jack says he has been lying about his age since he was 15, a time when he tried to get served in a local tavern where the age limit was 16. Now he tells the ladies that he's much younger, but they know better because they were at his surprise birthday party last week.

Cheers,

Gary

What a PIMP!!!

Reminds me of "Captain Clyde" in our cruiser fleet at a small lake here in the middle of the country. Not sure how old he is, but I know he's been sailing for at least 2 of my lifetimes and always has a line for the ladies.

so you are going to hit up the ladies that are in their fifties and sixties?

Re: You're never too old for sailing...

hello Gary, it appears that you're doing quite well, so no need to ask! I am hoping you will still be there when we come down. It looks like you have quite a lot of competition for the ladies, coming your way soon..... it's really easy for a saxophone player to steal the ladies hearts with a three-minute song.......lol CaptG

Just under three weeks before I have to head back to Maryland. I'm looking forward to having you sit in with me and wow the ladies with the sax.
