What's your keel?
How big will you next boat be?
Center Cockpit, Aft Cockpit, Pilot House, Deck Salon...which is best?
etc. etc. etc.
Cam, not to be a smart a$$ or anything but,...........I use the anchor I have

OK, I "voted," but voting to 65 or older seemed a bit weird.

I am 66. But, last Saturday, I went sailing with a good friend on his Sabre 34. He wouldn't let me do anything, instead he and his best friend from grammer school raised and winched in the sails. They are both 93. Yes that's right, ninety three years old.

Speaking of age and getting older, last year we had to deal with putting my wife's father into a nursing home during his last days. After that ordeal, my wife turned to our son, Alex, and said, "Don't worry Alex, when we get to be that age, your father and I will just get on Tamure, sail out to the middle of the ocean and pull the plug!"

Alex looked at her and said, "Wait! I have a better idea: why don't I sail you our there and drop you off!" No sense in waiting a good cruising boat.

Actually, I'm much younger than the girl I feel - or was that the other way round? Who the hell was Alzheimer anyway?

My daughter says I really old, my son thinks I'm a kid and my wife keeps telling me to grow up....

So, depending on who you ask I could be 5 or 60, but my mom says I'm 35. I like my sons answer the best.

Cool Age doesn't matter

I am 27 years old I don't own a house I went the sailboat route. It will be nice to live on cause if you do not like your neighbors its easy to move your house. Oh yeah I was saying that I am 27 and my girlfriend is in her late 40's age is just a number. She looks like she is in her thirties, is mature, no drama, knows what she wants. Its kinda nice to have a sugar momma(dad taught me that from an early age) I know that someday our relationship will come to an end but thats okay cause it is great while it lasts.
