sv mariane:

Honestly, I think your figures are more interesting: those are people who have crossed at least part of an ocean to be there with their boats.

And to CF, I hope you guys who posted your correct ages don't suddenly start getting age related spam!

Re: POLL: So what is the age here? MERGED

I find this interesting, At mid 50's we seem to be the younger crowd out there cruising. I personally think the average cruiser is in the 60's. However my son and his wife just built a boat from scratch and are in their 20's, but not the norm. See how the poll plays out!

Re: POLL: So what is the age here? MERGED

We're Gen Xer's in our mid forties.

Just old enough to remember what the beaches used to look like before they were covered in plastic debris. Just young enough to believe that the existence of intelligent space aliens is more realistic than the notion that Social Security will be there for us in our old age.

Trying to get out there while we have the good health to enjoy it. BTW, thanks a lot for the crappy environment you old people left behind. Nice work.

38 here and trying to get out cruising at 40. That would be an interesting part to add to this, how many of the people in each age group are actually out cruising or live aboards?

Re: POLL: So what is the age here? MERGED

It occurs to me that this poll might only point out the age of most boaters in online forums who enjoy responding to polls.

Some people on this forum do not have boats. Some even have never had a boat and are unlikely to buy one.


I am more a generalist: anyone older than me is a cantankerous old bastard and anyone younger hasn't learned a thing yet.
