Since you are quoting me maybe, just maybe, you should go back and look to see who called whom an idiot.

I'll wait.

BTW - I've got a old 2001 boat. I can only lust after those new ones.

OK, your right, I apologize, just saw lier and idiot get tossed around and that got me worried, then noticed it was a joke as you said.
You gotta admit, lier and idiot are not usually terms of endearment.
2001? Your boats a Baby, mine's and 87 and apparently even though I thought her old, seems she isn't that old after all

Invader 3 is 50 years old this year. Invaders were a George Cuthbertson design built by Bruchmann prior to the formation of C&C yachts. When C&C began, they reconfigured the Invader to give it a centre board and voila - the Frigate 36

Re: How Old's Your Ride?

Good thread. We clearly don't all sail on new Beneteau's.

Mine is a 1978 34' C&C. Sailed across the Pacific (sadly not by me) and now sailing on the beautiful Indian Ocean just south of Perth in Western Australia.

I also own a much treasured 1959 MGA.

Oh, and the Beloved is older than me too. Click image for larger version

Re: How Old's Your Ride?

Our lovely old girl (Douglas 32) is née 1976 (Annapolis boat show "boat of the year"! ) so that puts her firmly in the decade before I was born... But we just put an offer in on a 1999.

As for the " how well maintained is what matters". The two POs to me did not love her the way she deserved. Terrifying electrical wiring. Sinful, crooked holes drilled in the glass and bulkheads in far too many spots. Some critical maintenance neglected. 5 years on, and some large bills later, some of her is better than new (rig, electrical, etc.) It helps that she was a strong solid base to build on, and few things on a boat are "permanent damage". Her hull is pristine. The engine will likely live many more (loud shaky) years.

The motorcycle is a 1972. The road bicycle a 1978 frame. The truck is a 2011. Got to keep the variety there.
