re: Stop, the end, an exit plan for sailing.
I'm sure most folks will read this post and say "what?!", just like I did. But wait. I have thought about that. I'm a new boat owner at 57 and my wife is 56 years old. So. I can still climb like a monkey, am in excellent health, (real excellent ambition), and refitting the top end of the boat for years of worry-free adventure around the PNW.
BUT... realistically, I have thought "maybe we'll have 10 years" of good sailing left in us. So much can change that; health, finances, job, retirement, the economy, new war with Russia...
When it comes time to hang a 'for sale' sign on Traveler, we'll know it. We didn't buy her for any kind of investment or return. Would I have had these thoughts in my 30's or 40's? Probably not.
