Re: when to get out of sailing?

As the boat gets older... and the skipper gets older... we sail less but work on her more! hahaha But it's therapeutic and makes the sailing special in a way. If I can't physically sail... I won't. But it's physically difficult.

A year? That's closer to what my boat costs a month! If my boat costs were that low, I wouldn't think about quitting--I'd get two!

Re: when to get out of sailing?

Now , or when you sell or give your boat away.!! That would be like a dream/goal for some people. 2 houses,$45,000 a yr , free mooring.Why did you tell us that? Get a motorhome and you can tell more people quicker how much you have$$.
I run into people all the time that tell me how much money/condos/possessions they and their kids have(5minutes after I meet them)
