Except to say....
There's an old saw that prescribes that a man should never own a boat shorter in feet than one is in years.
I never understood where that comes from.
The smaller boat, the better for me.
To be able to sail a boat in and out of one's slip (instead of turning on the ignition key), to be able to tack on the lifts when you see them (instead of watching other boats pick them off), and the capability of refining your boat-for-boat tactics....
That's what it's all about.
I miss it.
Here's a boat doing that last night. Owned and skippered by an older dude than I.
And I am an old fart.
