Will you be a boater for the rest of your life?

The original owner of our 1977 Tolly tri cabin was carried off at 90+ years... that speaks for itself.* His 13 + year personal mechanic and shipwright (renowned in this area) kept the boat just a year at his own docks and really fixed it up for himself and family, then something occurred (divorce, I heard) where he suddenly lost interest and simply wanted to quickly sell and be done with it... I know from other boat workers in the area that he sold before he had opportunity to use it but twice.* Myself, Ive always dreamed of and hope to eventually end up dying on a boat while out in the water... my wife does not have the same dreams, so we shall see!* Good luck on your dreams!!*
Happy Boating Daze!* Art
