Even today's modern jukeboxes are going streaming music on demand. Internet streaming and mp3 files are so much simpler to deal with than CDs, tapes and records.

Wifey B: I know. But we got a Wurlitzer One More Time with CD's and info cards. Some of the others are iPad jukeboxes and all digital, but most at least have capacity for some CD's. Ours holds 100 actual plus 40 on cards. Pretty retro but we sort of got carried away with some retro things for our recreation room. Actually my hubby got carried away. Ms. Pac-man, Donkey Kong old restored machines.

And otherwise we don't use CD's ever. Especially on the boat where all books and music is digital. Well, except for like chart books and waterway guides that don't come digital.

WHAT HAPPENED TO HI FIDELITY..?
All that music hardware you guys are describing is treating the music like Music Macca's..!
It's all compressed. You lose quite a lot of quality. Call me old-fashioned, but if I play a recording I like it to be an occasion, not just a quick music takeaway…just background noise, without the sense of occasion.

However, I respect your right to consume music anyway you want. I guess the artists don't mind so much as long as it's paid for.

We consume lots of music. We spent three hours just singing in our music room this evening. A lot of the music we do listen to is music we enjoy singing ourselves. And we don't use it as background (ok, the recreation room we do). But on the boat we'll typically listen to music late in the day when just sitting in the salon or even at night in bed. Every day can be an occasion thought. We do have a keyboard and background music with us on the boat too.

Selling your boat Pete. upsizing, downsizing or a sideways flit?

More a case of one son and family in UK already. Other son thinking of also going there. Need to travel. Retiring, travel, and boating do not all compute. Not on my budget anyway.

Hey Peter

I see your angst on what pleasure[s] to keep or start or stop. Wishing you best luck. I drove 100 mi to be aboard boat with 14 yr. grandson this weekend... doing some chores and having some fun! It is a wonder to watch young ones eyes for love of the water. I can only recommend for you to make careful decision before selling a boat you've grown attached to. Of course, there can always be another one in your future... but, will it be worth time/money to bring the next one up to snuff? Maybe yes, Maybe no??

Happy Life Daze! - Art

Actually I admire the fact you're looking at all the choices of your retirement and deciding what is most important for you in life today. There is a time we would have taken boating over family. But we've developed a family, just somehow made one although no blood relations involved. And today if it was boat or family the boat would be gone. Hopefully you can find some way to still enjoy boating, whether friends or occasional charter. Maybe Dauntless or someone else will be looking for someone to join them and you'll be able to occasionally.

It certainly would be great to have a good boat hand as well as a medical doctor on board!! Peter can ride my boat anytime. He could even handle the Sarca.

Pete will bring his own Sarca, he wouldn't sell the Sarca too,surely not, Pete, Pete say it ain't true!

Seriously though, know how you feel, I've just managed to get two of my boys home after four years in Canada, only to lose the youngest to Spain for a couple of years, she has told me I had better brush up on my Spanish.

It's amazing that the Gen Y's seem to have become far more geographically mobile than their Gen X counterparts, leaving us greying baby boomers in their wake.A great time to be young.

I want a person who will wash the boat, cook meals, take a shift at the helm, and otherwise lives a drawer. I haven't found him/her yet.
