I'm a former sailor and won't return to sailboats. I'm too old for that, and my sweetheart wouldn't be comfortable on a sailboat.

Not being a long-distance boater, fuel cost is hardly a financial consideration as it represents less than 10 percent of boating costs, exclusive of the cost of trawler itself.

Besides, I have steadying sails to more than satisfy any urge to play with sails.
