Hi. I started with my Nordic Tug 26 at 70 for something to retire to 3years ago. I had no marine experience before so had extensive and enjoyable learning curve. Lots of reading and experimenting.Last year went down ICW from Rock Hall Maryland to Faro Blanco in Marathon and had a wonderful time. Nothing ventured nothing gained. I can now do my own oil changes , change my thruster shear pin and the impeller on the generator. This has given my wife and myself a whole new outlook and so far an enjoyable retirement.
