Iím 75 and it makes me mad when people think due to my age I shouldnít be doing something. Age is just a number to me. Iíve always believed that if you donít use it, you will loose it. I am very blessed that me and my wife do not take any medication. Due take a bunch of vitamins. Man please donít let age stop you.

Yesterday some whipper-snapper tells me: "Well now you are about to be 75 (April) is time to sell the boat". I looked at him like he was feeble-minded.

Heck, nowadays just getting into paddle boarding (inflatable) and really complimenting the trawler in the shallow waters of Belize. It folds into a small roll when not in use. (model: https://milled.com/bote-board-us/pin...m85Wq689XxM0cI )

(Will send picture of interior later today)

New Flooring

Just put new flooring and framed all the hatches at the same time. I am very pleased the way it turned out.
