There is neither an age limit for cruising nor for owning a boat. You need to be lumber/in good health and you need to have a source of income (around $2K-$5K USD/month, depending on your local cost of living.) It will increase your enjoyment if you have acquired a seamanship background.

When you spend more time on Cruiser's Forum than you spend actually sailing.

Re: You know you've passed your use-by date for cruising when...???

Well... considering the exact phrasing "You know you've passed your use-by date for cruising when..."

The use-by date on products is someone else's recommendation on when the product is past its prime. Doesn't mean the product has gone bad or is now a danger to others.

So... what others think about when I should stop sailing/cruising/anything? Don't effing care.

When should I stop sailing/cruising? Very simple. When I can't do it anymore, or don't want to.

When you think it is time to sail into the sunset and just keep going

When I was a live-aboard in Ft Lauderdale one of my neighbors in the marina did exactly that. I can't think of a better way to go.
