The first two are in the UK, the third is on the west coast America (having been sailed to Australia and back to the USA) the second two out of steel.
Sorry can’t seem to post a photo
I was reading this thread bemused at all the youngins talking about the age of their adolescent boats. It's about time some adults joined the conversation!

Oceana, a 36' ketch was made of steel in Holland in 1938. 74 years young!
She used to be owned by guy Williams (Zorro, Lost in space) and walt and Roy disney have both sailed aboard her.





currently on the hard for an extensive refit

Re: What is the age of your boat?

It would be interesting to take the results of all the polls and figure out how many people actually have a "statistically average boat". Funny thing about statistics is they don't always agree with reality.
Though we have alot of little poles, it might be interesting to have a pole with all sorts of stats, some might be in ratios......it starts to get overly complicated (at least there is a ratio calculator already in existence for some stuff.
