I agree to all stated but change it to my age 61. Been boating more years (55 years) than most members age. Owned 20 boats or I should say thats all I can remember.

I'm 54. Got my first boat 30 years ago and had one since, but just got my first offshore boat last August so I'm a rookie on the offshore scene. Hope to have as much fun as everyone here speaks of.

You SOB! You just had to start this thread to remind me I have less than two weeks remaining of being able to say I am 40 something.

Damn, where DID the last 49 years go?!

OK, that's it...I'm 49 and holding....

Dam now I feel bad for snapping at some of you in other threads, I was told to respect my elders I am only 37 but my parents passed when I was in my early 20's I have had a full time job since I was 16. I have been riding/racing/crashing motorcycles over 30 years and have been with the same girl for 18 years and no male in my family has made it to 65 so I feel 60. But I still say it's just a number.
