    Just like cars and airplanes. It's not the age it's the person.
    I agree %. A buddy of mines dad is 83 and gets out at least 3 days a week. He has the boat rack stored so he can just call up and go for a cruise when he feels like it.

    The biggest issue for older boaters is injuries sustained on board or boarding- mostly slip-and-fall.

    My father is 60 and is out every weekend in an 80mph bassboat...I don't see that ending any time soon. We have some 50+, 60+ and a 70+ guy in the area with boats running 70-80mph without issue......hope it's me someday!!!!

    Anyone notice the article on "Recycler" in the latest edition of Powerboat? I grew up around Don as he and my Dad are childhood friends. 67 years old and building/running a 3,600 HP cat at 140 MPH. My kind of boater! I hope to still be boating at that age...albeit probably not at 140 MPH!
