At 70, you'll do just fine and most of the comments here are good advise. I'm in your age bracket and I find the trawler one of the easiest boats to maintain, compared to smaller power boats and my limited experience on sail boats.

But, I've never owned a sail boat and never will... just too much work. I do my sailing on a windsurfer.

A lot of the trawlers are fairly accessible to get to things, and have relative simple systems. And, there's a lot of good boat mechanics out there to help.

FFs advise is spot on!
