How Old's Your Ride?

My search has taken me to posts and ads for vessels of almost all ages and it got me wondering what the boat demographics were for the rest of the forum. So, how old's your boat?

Tom

Re: How Old's Your Ride?

Current ride is a 1979. Upgraded 2 or 3 years ago from a smaller 1974.

It is a poll, just noticed it only shows up as such if you're viewing in the general sailing forum. On the recent threads list, it shows as a normal post. Computers, gotta love 'em.

Mr. Greenhand feels the same way. Lucky for me he doesn't have the same standards for his woman.

Xeon tsd. I just noticed your boats name. Stargate fan right? One of my favorite shows.

Gonna name my boat Serenity, I am sure you can use that to figure out another of my favorite shows.

Re: How Old's Your Ride?

A 1974 Tartan 41/43 still going strong ( and as a S & S design) looks pretty good. Former owners took pretty good care of her as I have.

Re: How Old's Your Ride?

My boat's age is in my signature.

Why do you ask? What can it possibly mean from this limited group? Serious question. Or just curious would be a good answer.

There we 1,802 or 3 of my boats produced. I know 25 of them personally and 700 of them in our website. Maximum of 30 years old to 6 years old (when they stopped production). There are lots of older boats and lotsa newer ones.

What difference does it make? Since every response to a "what boat should I buy?" includes: condition, condition, condition. We've all seen new boats in much worse shape than older, much older ones. No way to know what we have.

Since I just used the phrase "slapstick space western" in another thread, I bet I can guess
