You are right. At my age it is the memory that goes.

Actually the memory is the second thing to go.

What's the first?

I forget.

Hopefully someone gets it.

I did. As mine is the same.

On a related note, I just saw a trailer for a BBC TV production of "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" with Elijah Wood. It looks good enough to give it a go. Out in October.

I would have thought that everything has changed by about a year and a half!

Wifey B: If it's a good show, reruns and copies are welcome.... I think it reminds us plus some subtle differences. I don't mind ever that topics are repeated as sometimes new insight and it's informative of those not here last time, or who just didn't see it.

Trawlers are a bit of the anti-size growth. For the average user they don't need the extra size. Sport Fishermen are pushing sizes way up with very little being sold under 60' and many 70-100'. Even center consoles have moved up to 40'. Brands with smaller boats like Cabo and Bertram are gone. Now, Hatteras does sell the relabeled Cabo as A Hatteras Express 45'. A void that hit's TF is the one left by Grand Banks. Beneteau Swift Trawler fills in some. However, here you see some great boats from 30' to 55'.

As to speed, I think younger people want it more and a huge reason is many of them have less time. The older trawler owner has all the time in the world, is in no hurry. The younger family boater who only gets weekends and a couple of weeks a year, wants to get places quicker. Now there are some older people into real speed, 60-90 knots, but they wouldn't tend to visit here and their group has shrunk. Companies like Fountain are nothing compared to what they were.

In semi-displacement and planing boats, with brands such as Princess and Sunseeker and Sabre there are still some models in the 40-60' range. Now, here's where the builder is influencing the market however, as the builders are building larger and larger boats, because they're more profitable. There was a time 150' fiberglass boats were just a dream. Then they didn't have the facilities. But they've figured out a lot more money in 150' vs. 50' and that's where their attention has gone.

Now, the model we're doing the Loop in also comes in 52', a great boat. It would make a better loop boat than the one we're in except for one thing. While most here travel with two people, we normally have 6 or so aboard. We don't make any long trips with just the two of us. Number of passengers is what has forced us to a 65' boat for the loop. Now, had we been able to find something that had all the other attributes and ran faster, we would have chosen it. We admit to liking speed, but the first half of 2012 we lived on a lake and our 30' bowrider ran 55 knots so what is considered fast here is very slow for us. Much like the opposite of the sailboat crowd moving to trawlers. Much is a matter of where you came from to get here.

62, which, I thought, used to be old. Glad I was wrong!

Yes, sorting screws and generally re-organizing things in storage. Just messing around on the boat is very satisfying! What was that famous quote...?

Old is mostly, but not entirely, a state of mind...
