I boated for about 50 years, but mistakes I made as a young man shortened my boating span. In the old days we all wanted to be tanned as a greek god. Well, the sun finally did me in, or I'd be out there today. Another thing about us seniors, we can afford bigger, faster boats than many young guys, and have a hell of a lot more experience driving them. That counts for something too...

PS, Terry. We were discussing the paint scheme for Bob's new 50. Solid yellow with a bunch of square black windows painted all down both sides. Some red flashing lights on the transom would be a nice touch too
